Should Hindi Be An Official Language At The UN?

On this day in 1949, Hindi became an official language of India. But the debate over whether the government should use English or Hindi continues to this day.

    Vague argument, Such things should not be priority , when more vital issues are there. Instead of development, corruption, improving general standards of life, they are debating about a useless issue and wasting time.

    Wtf. She's the minister of external affairs for this country and trying to kill a language which is uniting people not just domestically but globally! I can't believe why we elect such government that is ready to spend 400 crores to change the language to Hindi but was not only hesitant but also causing problems to bring relief in harsh times. Could've used that money for benefitting the people to be educated? This government declares people anti-national but never realise that our entire government came into power to destroy all the nationalism that exists in this country. Shame on you Government of India

    भारत अपनी हिंदी भाषा के लिए ही जाना जाता हैं क्योंकि यह अन्य भाषाओं की अपेक्षा ज्यादा बोली जाती है अतः हिंदी को ही यूनाइटेड नेशन्स की भाषा होनी चाहिए।

    Why is this single foreign language Hindi continued to dominate the native people of the Indian Union ? Foreign language I mean that every individual's non-mother tongue is a foreign language for that individual and so Hindi is mostly a foreign language for most of the native people of the Indian Union ! #MakeLinguisticEquality #LinguisticFreedomIsRealFreedom
