A BCCI commentator has found himself in hot water after his controversial remarks in the Karnataka vs Baroda game where he emphasized on the need for every Indian to 'know hindi’. The Twitterati did not take the comments well and lambasted the commentator for his on-air remarks.
Here is how Twitter reacted to his comments:
Did this lunatic commentator just say “Every Indian should know Hindi” ? What on earth do you think you’re @BCCI ? Stop imposing Hindi and disseminating wrong messages. Kindly atone. Every Indian need not know Hindi #StopHindiImposition #RanjiTrophy #KARvBRD pic.twitter.com/thS57yyWJx— Ramachandra.M/ ರಾಮಚಂದ್ರ.ಎಮ್ (@nanuramu) February 13, 2020
My mother tongue is kannada..don't impose Hindi on us— Munesh Bidar Lakha (@BidarLakha) February 13, 2020
I am a native hindi speaker but i didn't support what commentators said. India is rich in language. Every indian should try to learn 1-2 other language of india but we should not force hindi on anyone.— Jagat Bandhu (@JagatkeBandhu) February 13, 2020
Every school is now telling kids that Hindi is national language when there is nothing called national language for India #stopHindiImposition— EnglishSpeakingதமிழன் (@English80540714) February 13, 2020
