Hindi has slowly become a world language: MoS MJ Akbar

PORT LOUIS: The Minister of State for External Affairs, MJ Akbar, today said Hindi has become a global language silently, which was witnessed by the entire world.

“When history changes, it changes with so much of silence that it does not make any sound. This is what happened with Hindi,” he told the closing session of the 11th World Hindi Conference here.

“Many people had raised questions in the conference on when Hindi will become the world language. I can say with conviction that it has already become a global language silently,” the Minister said.

He said Hindi has taken inspiration from Sanskrit. Two thousand years ago, Sanskrit grew due to cultural power and today the use of Hindi is increasing through human power. (AGENCIES)
