All non-Hindi languages face a threat owing to Centre’s language policy: Chidambaram cautions

Launch of the book Thamizhattru Padai authored by Kaviperarasu Vairamuthu

Senior Congressman and former Union Minister P. Chidambaram on Friday has warned that all non-Hindi languages face great danger owing to the administrative language policy of the Centre and therefore all non Hindi language speakers must rally together to protest and take necessary measures.

He made this observation addressing the event held for the launch of the book ‘Thamizhattru Padai’ authored by Kaviperarasu Vairamuthu in Chennai on Friday, July 12.

During his address, Chidambaram said:

“There is a great danger that has surrounded non-Hindi languages. So, all non-Hindi language speakers must band together and protest, if necessary. We are eligible to lead this fight. As a first step, we must understand that language and Tamil 'Inam' are not different. It is not enough to say Tamil Vazhga but do everything for Tamil to thrive.

Every civilization has land, race and a language. If they lose their land, they can migrate. But if they lose their language, the race will disappear. If the race has to survive and thrive, the language must thrive.”
