karnataka: Can’t impose Kannada: Karnataka HC | India News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Students from outside Karnataka cannot be forced to learn Kannada, be it classical or practical, the High Court observed orally on Tuesday, giving the state government time to reconsider the matter.
A division bench headed by Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi adjourned the hearing of a petition till November 10 challenging two government orders to make Kannada compulsory for degree students at the request of Advocate General Prabhuling K Navadgir. “With the understanding that the government will reconsider the matter, we put the matter on hold,” it says. Earlier, Navadagi had said that people need to learn Kannada for employment purposes and they do not need to learn Kannada in the classical sense and he would get more instructions on the subject.
However, the bench asked how the state government could force a student from outside to learn Kannada and added that the state government should reconsider the matter.
Sanskriti Bharati (Karnataka) Trust, Bangalore and three other organizations have filed the petition challenging the validity of the government orders dated August 7, 2021 and September 15, 2021 saying that it goes against NEP.
