DMK MP Kanimozhi criticized the government for putting up signs only in Hindi in Railway Stations. She argued that signs in railway stations must be in regional languages in order for the local people to understand them. Kanimozhi quoted herself as an example and said that she did not understand Hindi but had seen signs in her village in Hindi without being translated into Tamil. She strongly questioned how the ruling party expected to reach the locals if it could not adapt to their language and if it continued to create a communication barrier. The language imposition debate has been ongoing ever since the framing of the Constitution.Hindi signs should not be an issue if they are accompanied with signs in local languages. However, the language imposition accusation has gone extreme in the South especially in Tamilnadu where there is a demand for complete Hindi removal.

In 1989-90, with Rajiv Gandhi as PM and Farooq Abdullah as CM, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs & Others FACED GENOCIDE - were slaughtered or forced to leave Kashmir overnight. "The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
