A.R Rahman has been raising voice against the Central Government subtly for past few days. He welcomed the changes made to the draft National Education Policy saying the alteration will enable students to choose any language they want to study.
The musician took to his Twitter account to express his contentment, which roughly means, “Hindi is not compulsory in TN. The draft policy has been revised.”

Initially the musician posted a video of a punjabi singing a Tamil song and wrote the musician shared a video of a Punjabi performing the cover version of his super hit Tamil melody song “Innum Konjam Neram Iruntha Than Enna” and added a caption saying “Tamizh is spreading in Punjab 😀”

Tamilnadu has always been a state that opposed Hindi imposition.For the past two days, people of the state started trending the hashtag #StopHindiImposition for making Hindi as third mandatory language till class 8.
Hindi should not be made a mandatory third language in schools, a popular campaign on social media said on Saturday, as Twitter was flooded with messages protesting a draft education policy submitted to the new government at the centre a couple of days ago.
