CISF officer at airport asked me if I am an Indian as I don’t speak Hindi, Kanimozhi says | Chennai News – Times of India

CHENNAI: DMK Lok Sabha member Kanimozhi had an unpleasant experience when a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer at Chennai airport asked her whether she was an “Indian” after the MP asked the latter to speak in English.
“Today at the airport a (woman) 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,” the Tuticorin MP tweeted.
Kanimozhi soon found support from Congress Lok Sabha member Manickam Tagore, who was elected from the Virudhunagar parliamentary seat. “Condemnable! The way ruling establishment pushes One Nation, One Language, One culture it will eliminate many for a few. Hope @CISFHQrs acts on this !,” the Congress MP tweeted.
His effort did not go waste, as CISF responded quickly and promised appropriate action.
“Warm greetings from @CISFHQrs. We sincerely acknowledge your unpleasant experience. Kindly DM journey details, name of airport, location, date and time of the incident for appropriate action in the matter,” CISF tweeted.
