This is totally unethical! Why should HINDI occupies here in milestone 🙁

@ShekharMohanty4 @HinduRajyam Whose money is it anyway?? Do we pay tax for this??

@Praveenkumar91 @Neyandar But we are not imposing hindi on you,as you know that British imposed English on us but our regional languages are still remains

But the entry of Hindi into these milestones, in the place of English, seems to have touched a raw nerve among the people of Tamil Nadu. Tamilians have historically strongly opposed the imposition of Hindi on the state. In 1965, when Hindi was to be made the sole official language of the country, anti-Hindi agitations peaked in the state resulting in two months of violence, arson and looting spread across the state.

Following media reports on the milestones, leaders of Tamil Nadu political parties like Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and Pattali Makkal Katchi have issued warnings of large-scale protests if the centre continued to push for Hindi at the expense of other languages.

“This shows bringing Hindi hegemony through the backdoor in Tamil Nadu,” said MK Stalin, DMK’s working president, in a statement to the press.

Meanwhile, social media users argue that while Hindi may be an official language, it is not the national language of the country and cannot be forced on non-Hindi states.

You do not feel happy if we speak in any other language?

For me “NO USE OF HINDI” Why should i learn? English useful for Job & to go abroad. If i want, I learn any IND language

British r renowned fr colonisation
Let Hindi belt admit that they’re also colonising non Hindi regions of India, then. 

Dear Hindi Speakers, our fight is against hindi imposition not against the language. Get it right. Pls join us.

Several social media users from other states across the country have voiced their protest against the move to replace English with Hindi on highway milestones. Lashing out against Twitter users who asked “Why can’t you learn Hindi?”, people from Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and even Bihar joined in the clamour against the imposition of Hindi.

If Karnataka should have a multilingual policy, it should b along the lines of Kannada+Tulu+Kodava+Konkani and English.

Dear Southies kudos to you for stopping the Hindi onslaught. Love from – A Bihari who lost his language i.e. Bhojpuri.
