Let there be no attempt to make inclusive India into an exclusive one: Kamal Haasan tells Amit Shah

Kamal Haasan

Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) founder Kamal Haasan has observed that there should be no attempts to make an inclusive India into an exclusive one as all would suffer.

He made this observation responding to Union Minister Amit Shah’s remark that Hindi be the unifying language of India. Dismissing Shah’s comment as a short sighted policy, Kamal Hassan said:

"India is an excellent feast. Let us consume it together. If one thinks of shoving (food--Hindi in this context), it would lead to nausea please don't do that.

India’s National Anthem was penned in a language (Bengali) that was not mother tongue to most citizens. Most of the nation happily sings its National Anthem in Bengali with pride, and will continue to do so.

The reason is the poet (Rabindranath Tagore) who wrote the National Anthem gave due respect to all languages and culture within the Anthem. And hence, it became our Anthem. We oppose any attempts to "impose" Hindi saying it was a promise made to the country decades back which "no Shah, Sultan or Samrat must renege on."

The unity in diversity is a promise that we made when we made India into a Republic. Now, no Shah, Sultan or Samrat must renege on that promise. We respect all languages, but our mother language will always be Tamil.”
