Saag means edible (with or without cooking) leaves. It could be any leaf. So, if someone is using spinach to make saag, it is fine as long as it is specified. For instance, the most popular saag is Sarson ka saag (Mustard leaf saag). Here it is specified which leaf is used to prepare. Note that sarson ka saag only has mustard leaves are main ingredient, it still uses other leaves too.
Next time you are at an Indian restaurant recommending saag to you, ask them saag of what?
What are you doing giving out fine details? Down here in Australia, the local blokes are almost never to taste sarsoon ka saag (which should ideally be etched as "the saag" in everyone's minds). I've also eaten "sarsoon ka saag" in some restaurants prepared with... wait for it... spinach. While I see the locals enjoying it (no harm done), I feel that it's a bit of bullshit to sell them palak as sarsoon. And the BBC will be quick to pick up bullshit, no surprises.
I'll post a version of the recipe to in response to the OP's question, and will clearly specify mustard greens (and methi of course). Mmm. May be I'll prepare some in the weekend.

I know exactly what you mean... Same for me with Paella in Germany
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
All interesting points for sure. Since I have not been to India, and don't know if I will be able to go any time in the foreseeable future, I am stuck with these American "Indian" restaurants and recipes from the Internet (BBC, Epicurious, etc.).
I do like Mustard greens, so I may try that next time.
I think spinach and dill leaves are two most commonly available ones here. I have rarely seen fenugreek and never seen kenaf and roselle anywhere. If you can find brown chickpea leaves, that could also me used in food.
So my sister's "new" boyfriend is into Ghostbusters. As far as I'm concerned, those were a series of "meh" movies. I understand the "cult classic" thing, but this? I wasn't aware a "Ghostbusters club" was "a thing" at all.
His car's covered in Ghostbusters stickers, he owns a set of overalls like they do in the movies, and a backpack with flashing lights and the whole kit. He's driven from Canada to the States to get that backpack a few months ago, and then again last weekend apparently to get "a better one". Never mind the backpack, the expenses for the trip itself have got to have cost him a few hundred bucks (gas, meals, motel, money exchange, etc). His car's falling apart, so he's taken my sister's car for the trip. He's got a close to minimum wage dead-end job, no money, no ambition that I've ever heard him speak of. Every time he opens his mouth it's to say something about the comic book movie du jour. Not a great conversation piece for myself, and much less my folks.
This is a 50+ year old grown up man with his own grown-up kids...I was going to try to explain the cosplay culture to my dad, but I decided to let him fend for himself.
Where was I heading with this? Not sure. Why Ghostbusters? I don't see the appeal. As per my subject line...don't question hobbies, I guess...

Yeah...problem is, he's dragging my sister into it. She is old enough to make her own decisions...but I have at times questioned her decision-making process. After all, she is dating the guy (and thinks everything's peachy).
