Hindi Daily Opposition: Hindi Day is celebrated on 14th September every year. This day is celebrated as Hindi Diwas. However, non-Hindi speaking states continue to condemn the celebration of this day.
Violent protest in Karnataka: Former Prime Minister Deve Gowda’s secular Janata Dal and Kannada organizations have strongly opposed celebrating Hindi Day in Karnataka. In a letter written to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bombay, senior MJD leader Kumaraswamy said, “It is not acceptable to celebrate Hindi Language Day in Karnataka apart from celebrating Kannada language. Celebrating Hindi Day on the tax money of the people of Karnataka cannot be allowed,” it said.
