Battle for Tamil will be bigger than Jallikattu: Kamal Haasan

Actor-Politician Kamal Haasan has responded to the Union Minister Amit Shah’s insistence to embrace Hindi as a language that unifies the nation in the eyes of the world.

Kamal Haasan’s video that runs just under 2 minutes was shared on his Social media account.
“No Shah, Sultan or Samrat can suddenly break that promise. We respect all languages but our mother language will always be Tamil. Jallikattu was just a protest. The battle for our language will be exponentially bigger than that,” Kamal Haasan says.
“A lot of Rajas have given up their Raj to form the union of India. But the people did not want to give up their language, culture and identity,” he speaks in his trademark baritone.

“India or Tamil Nadu does not need or deserve such a battle,” he adds.

“Most of the nation happily sings their national anthem in Bengali with pride and will continue to do so as the poet who wrote the national anthem gave due respect to all languages and cultures within the national anthem and hence it became our anthem,” Kamal Haasan says.
