Superstar Rajinikanth became the latest leader to join the protest against “imposition of Hindi” today. The actor said that no language can be imposed as a common language in the country.

The comments from the superstar came on the Chennai airport when reporters questioned the actor on the matter. He was quoted saying “A common language not just for India but any country is good for its unity and progress. Unfortunately, (one cannot) bring a common language in our country. So you cannot impose any language.

The matter of Hindi language became a topic of hot discussion when Union Home Minister Amit Shah urged the nation to encourage the development of the Hindi language. He also urged the nation to increase the use of their own mother tongue along with Hindi and gave a call that the Hindi language is the only tool that has the potential to unify the nation. This started a nation-wide debate on the Hindi language.

Tamil Nadu actor and politician Kamal Hassan (Makkal Needhi Maiam party leader) also came out against the imposition of Hindi language. He said that the government’s move might even lead to a bigger battle than “Jalikattu“. Kamal Hassan said, “Unity in diversity is a promise we made when India became a republic. Now no Shah, Sultan or Samrat should renege on that promises.”

Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa also said that the official languages of the nation are all equal in sense and his people will not compromise on the status of Kannada language.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had also refuted the claims of the Home minister on Hindi language and said that the statement of Hindi language unifying the nation is completely absurd.

DMK party has also announced a state-wide protest in Tamil Nadu on September 20 against the remarks of Home Minister Amit Shah on the imposition of Hindi language. MK Stalin conveyed the decision of the party.
