HINDI INDIA … Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan give thumbs down to Hindi as India’s national language

CHENNAI: Superstar Rajinikanth on Wednesday spoke out against imposition of Hindi as national language, as proposed by Union home minister Amit Shah, and said any such attempt will be resisted not just by those in the South, but by many in the North too.
Rajinikanth, an adopted son of Tamil Nadu who hailed from Belgaum in Karnataka where Marathi and Kannada are spoken languages, said Hindi should not be imposed on anyone. The concept of a common language for the nation as advocated by Shah was good for any country for its unity and progress, but one cannot force a common language in this country.

Another superstar, Kamal Haasan has also opposed Shah’s proposal made at an event marking Hindi Divas (Hindi Day) at the national capital.  Haasan said no Shah, Samrat or Sultan can renege on the promise of unity. It would be a follow to do so, as all would suffer, he has warned.
Hindi is given the status of Official Language alongside English in the Indian Constitution, which was introduced when India was declared a Republic. –IHN-NN
