Amit Shah’s proposal will make non-Hindi speaking people second class citizens, undermines unity: Stalin charges

MK Stalin

DMK President M.K.Stalin has charged that the Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s proposal that Hindi should be India’s common and unifying language would make non-Hindi speaking people secondary citizens in the country and undermine the unity.

He was speaking to the media. Stalin further said:

“DMK founder Anna said if a language spoken by more people should be the national language, then the ubiquitous crow, and not the peacock, should be the national bird. The DMK would launch a struggle to protect Tamil and to protest against the imposition of Hindi.

This will certainly infringe national integrity and hence he should withdraw his views immediately. Pluralism is India's biggest strength. Unity in diversity is the nation's cultural identity. The BJP government has been taking steps to 'erase' such an identity ever since it assumed office at the Centre.

While all languages in the Constitution's Eighth Schedule should be nurtured, picking only Hindi for promotion will impinge national integrity and it is both anguishing and condemnable.”
