Never asked for imposing Hindi over other regional languages: Amit Shah

Never asked for imposing Hindi over other regional languages: Amit Shah

New Delhi, Sep 18 (UNI) Amid the huge controversy over his statement on culturally unifying India with Hindi languages on the Hindi Diwas on September 14, the Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday clarified that he had never asked for imposing Hindi over other regional languages and the issue is being blown for political motives.

'I never asked for imposing Hindi over other regional languages and had only requested for learning Hindi as the second language after one’s mother tongue,' the Home Minister said in a media House discussion at Ranchi.

I myself come from a non-Hindi state of Gujarat. If some people want to do politics, its their choice but they should listen my speech carefully, he added.

Mr Shah on September 14, advocated for making Hindi as a common language for the country and said that it was necessary to have one language which could represent India in the world.

"India is a country of many different languages and each language has its own significance, but it is necessary to have a common language that becomes the mark of India's identity globally. Today, if there is one language that has the ability to string the nation together in unity, it is the Hindi language which is the most widely-spoken and understood language in India”, Mr Shah had twitted on Hindi Diwas.

The Minister’s tweet sparked a huge controversy specially in southern states that have always been opposed to imposition of any other languages other than their regional languages.
