Further, India was an "excellent feast" and that such imposition would lead to "nausea", he said.

"The unity in diversity is a promise that we made when we made India into a Republic. But, I don't accept what Shah said".

Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan trained his guns on home minister Amit Shah on Monday in the row over imposition of Hindi.

"They are not just imposing Hindi, but Centre and State Government is betraying Tamil Nadu in issues NEET, Cauvery issue and they have imposed unsafe projects such as hydrocarbon in Tamil Nadu", he said.

"India is an excellent feast".

"Hindi continues to grow, this is what we all want, but by putting pressure, by doing something, it is not appropriate to use that issue only for votes", party leader Rajiv Shukla said at a media briefing on Monday.

Then, slipping into dire territory, he warns, "All will suffer because of such short-sighted folly".

"Though English is pre-dominantly used as a link language between Hindi-speaking and non-Hindi speaking people across the country as a legacy of the British raj even 74 years after the Independence, a country of 130 crore people has no common language of their own to communicate as Sanskrit was once upon a time", a linguistic expert told IANS on the condition of anonymity.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on September 16 tweeted that India's many languages are not its weakness. He was addressing the Hindi conclave wherein he said yes Hindi is one of the good languages.

His remarks, however, drew sharp reactions among opposition parties, especially in Tamil Nadu where all of them including ruling AIADMK rallied against Shah's statement.

Amit Shah's statements on Hindi becoming a unifying language for all Indians has been seen by many as an attempt by the centre to impose Hindi on non-Hindi speaking states.

DMK president M K Stalin accused the Centre of "autocratic imposition of Hindi" and underscored the need for unity in opposition ranks to take forward protest against the government on such issues.

Following Amit Shah's comments made at the Hindi Day event, leaders of the DMK, Tamil Nadu Congress Committee and NDA-ally Pattali Makkal Katchi, among others, had expressed their disapproval.
