Tamil Nadu: After the Hindu religion, the next bugbear of DMK is language ( read anti-Hindi sentiment). An agency report has put out a story on her tweet, widely carried across news portals. It says: DMK MP Kanimozhi on Sunday said a Central Industrial Security Force officer asked her if she was an Indian when she asked the woman officially to speak in Tamil or English.

'Today at the airport a CISF officer asked me if 'I am an Indian,' when I asked her to speak to me in Tamil or English as I did not know Hindi. I would like to know from when being Indian is equal to knowing Hindi. #hindiimposition,' Kanimozhi who is also the DMK's women's wing secretary said on her twitter handle. A number of social media users replied supporting her, with one of them saying, 'I am an Indian and Hindi has nothing to do with it! #hindiimposition Pass it on!.
