Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s statement on making Hindi compulsory in the Northeast has drawn a lot of flak from Students as well as Civil bodies from across the region.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s statement on making Hindi compulsory in the Northeast has drawn a lot of flak from Students as well as Civil bodies from across the region.

Outer Manipur Lok Sabha MP, Dr. Lorho S. Pfoze, has written to the Union Home Minister, not to impose compulsory learning of Hindi but instead to create an atmosphere of ease and pleasure for learning the language as an optional subject.

In a letter addressed to the Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, the outer Manipur MP stated that democracy in India is characterised by “Unity in Diversity” that has provided a unified vision to the people to make the nation a great one.

He reminded the Union Home Minister that North East India has the widest range of ethnic and cultural diversity, with more than 220 dialects or languages spoken.

The MP added that while learning Hindi is undoubtedly important, imposition of any sort always creates a negative attitude towards a gesture.

Imposing Hindi upon the NE India at the moment will only compound the learning burden on NE students while at present too, learning the ethic language or mother tongue in the primary level education is basic.

Compulsory learning of Hindi till Class X on top of two other languages is like deliberately awarding a curriculum disadvantage to NE students in comparison to students whose ethnic language is Hindi. He added that the imposition would only cause a further sense of alienation to the people of North East India.
