Recently, Home Minister Amit Shah had mooted for Hindi language to unify the country in all spheres.

Superstar Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan opposed the idea of "imposing" Hindi as one language all over India. Home Minister Amit Shah on the occasion of Hindi Diwas had mooted for One Nation, One Language theory.

The minister in a series of tweet hinted towards unifying the nation by making Hindi as an official language across the country. However, the idea received a lot of flak from the opposition parties.

MNM Party founder Kamal Haasan said, "The unity in diversity is a promise we made when we made India into a Republic. Now no ''Shah, Sultan or Saamraat'' should renege on that promise. We respect all languages. But our mother language will always be Tamizh. Jallikattu was just a protest. The battle for our language will be exponentially bigger than that. India or Tamil Nadu does not need or deserve such a battle. Most of the nation happily sings the national anthem in Bengali with pride and will continue to do so."

He further said, "The reason is the poet who wrote the national anthem gave due respect to all languages and cultures within the anthem Do not make an inclusive India into an exclusive one. All will suffer because of such short-sighted folly," he said.

In the tweet, Kamal said, "Now you are constrained to prove to us that India will continue to be a free country. You must consult the people before you make a new law or a new scheme."

Superstar Rajinikanth was asked about Home Minister Amit Shah's vision to make Hindi a common language all over India, to which he said, "A common language not just for India but any country is good for its unity and progress. Unfortunately, (one cannot) bring a common language in our country. So you cannot impose any language," he told reporters at the airport here.

"Especially, if you impose Hindi, not just Tamil Nadu, no southern state will accept that. Many states in northern parts will also not accept that," he said.
