Rajinikanth opposes Amit Shah's Hindi imposition, says South state will not accept it.
Superstar Rajinikanth finally opens up on Amit Shah's push for having Hindi as a common unifying language for the whole of India.
Superstar Rajinikanth has joined the chorus against Home Minister Amit Shah's recent push for Hindi as a unifying language for the country. After Kamal Haasan, now Rajinikanth has said that Tamil Nadu and other southern Indian states would never accept Hindi imposition.
Speaking to reporters outside Chennai airport, Rajinikanth said, "The Hindi language should not be imposed. Not just Tamil Nadu, none of the southern states will accept Hindi imposition."
He added, "Not just Hindi, no language should be imposed on the country."
Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Rajinikanth said, "If there is a common language it is good for the unity and progress of the country. Unfortunately, it can't be implemented in our country. However, forcing a language is not acceptable. Southern states will not accept Hindi imposition. Even some northern states will not accept Hindi Imposition".
Earlier, Makkal Needhi Maiam leader and prolific actor Kamal Haasan warned of an "exponentially bigger battle" than the 2017 pro-Jallikattu protests against "imposition" of the language.
