How Hindi Is Imposed On Us?
I can show you many Hindi speakers in Chennai whose native language is Tamil but chose to study Hindi at school.
Can you show me one kid from a School based in New Delhi who learnt Tamil despite Hindi being their native language?
This is the bigotry that we Tamils are fighting for.
Hindi imposition happens this way too, by making Hindi as an “option” (which will at least have one class per school, roughly 30 students in a class) in all the 29 states & 7 UTs and not encouraging other 22 officially recognised languages to be the options available for a student to choose in any state.
When a Tamil is expected to learn Hindi, why can’t Tamils expect the others to learn our language?
This is the equality that we are demanding. #Promotelinguisticequality
