Hindi language controversy. Amid the ongoing controversy over Hindi language in the southern Indian states, DMK MPT KS Elangwen has made a controversial statement. DMK MPT KS Elangwen has said that Hindi is the language of backward states and adopting Hindi language will make people shudder and it will not be good for anyone.
The war of language can intensify.
DMK MPT KS Elanguin’s controversial statement on Hindi language could once again spark a new debate on the language controversy in the country. In fact, in addition to fanning the flames of language controversy, the DMK MP has also made a caste-based comment, stating that the Hindi language is for the use of Shudras only.
MPT KS Elangon said that Hindi is the mother tongue only in backward states like Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Rajasthan. He said that look at states like West Bengal, Odisha, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Punjab. Aren’t these all developed states? Hindi is not the mother tongue in all these states. “
It may be recalled that in April, Union Home Minister Amit Shah during the 37th meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on Official Languages in New Delhi had said that Hindi should be accepted as an alternative to English and not as an alternative to local languages. Besides, on the language controversy, PM Modi has also said that local languages have been given priority in the new education policy. PM Modi had said that diversity of language is our national pride, but some people are raising language controversy.
