Reportedly after facing backlash for his stand that only Hindi can unite the nation, Home Minister amit shah on Wednesday said he did not mean “imposing Hindi over other regional languages.” When speaking at the Hindustan Purvoday Summit in Ranchi, Jharkhand, amit shah said, “I never asked for imposing Hindi over other regional languages and had only requested for learning Hindi as the second language after one’s mother tongue.”

He argued “I myself come from a non-Hindi speaking state of Gujarat. Listen to what I said properly; if some people want to do politics, it’s their choice. I said this again and again that we need to strengthen Indian languages, and understand their necessity. State languages are also there, in my state of Gujarat also. But there should be one such language in the country if you are learning a second language, learn Hindi. This is what I requested, what’s wrong in it?”

Moreover Shah also said that there should be an effort to strengthen Indian languages, lest we become a country like new zealand, australia and Africa, where people do not know what language they speak, he said. “We should strengthen regional languages, and also learn Hindi.”
