Making Fun Of Someone’s English Doesn’t Make You Look Cool, It Makes You Look Stupid
English Language certainly holds a lot of importance in our Indian society and it is a perception of many people that if you want to succeed in life then being well-versed in English is a necessity. However, this is something which should not happen as English is not the language of Indians and we adopted it from the Britishers who ruled over us for 190 years and the knowledge of English can’t be the parameter to declare a person successful or a failure. If a person is not well-versed in English or any other language then it doesn’t means that he is not a capable person and he can’t be successful in life instead people should try to know about the deeds done by that person to know him better.
We need to understand that a language is just a tool of communication and while someone may be proficient in English, someone else may lack proficiency in English due to various factors. However, making fun of someone just because he is not good in English is certainly a stupid act and people should stop being so irresponsible.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a cabinet reshuffle couple of days back, while few ministers were retained, some were asked to resign and new members of parliament were inducted as ministers and were given the charge of different ministries.
Mansukh Laxmanbhai Mandaviya, the Rajya Sabha member from the state of Gujarat was appointed as the new Health minister as he replaced Harsh Vardhan. However, as Mansukh L Mandaviya took charge, some trollers started circulating few old tweets which were made by him in English, in those tweets the new health minister has made some grammatical mistakes which depict his lack of proficiency in English language.
Here are few such tweets:
Already in love with the new health of our minister. pic.twitter.com/snyIiDWEIt

There is no denying the fact that it was really disgusting to see some people making fun of new health minister just because he can’t speak English properly but the good thing is that there were some who supported him and the let the world know that a language is a tool to communicate.
My message to those who r trolling @mansukhmandviya just for english-#English is a language,not a measure of intelligence.
In many developed countries people don't speak English.#MansukhMandaviya is not appointed as a HOD of english literature, so just chill and wait n watch. pic.twitter.com/8nm5khsiec

Coming from a govt school in a small town, I learnt English pretty late. Have done well in my professional and personal life so far. Better than many wokes who are busy judging people on their English language skills.

I too learnt English as a second language at later stage of schooling. English is just another language, not a measure of a person's capabilitity. https://t.co/kdtTSD6s8w

I don’t like the current govt, but people making fun of Mansukh Mandaviya for English feels so pathetic. Criticise him on his credentials,ideology &/or work if you want to show dissent. Speaking proper English isn’t a pre requisite for the post nor should it be for India.

This gentleman made people aware of the good work that has been done by Mansukh L Mandaviya for which he was honoured by UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund).
It's high time that India should think beyond English Speaking skills in order to judge a talent.
Mansukh Mandaviya was honoured by UNICEF for his work on women's menstrual hygiene & for selling 10 crore sanitary pads made with oxo-biodegradable technology at a nominal price. https://t.co/4G6kiGLC0u pic.twitter.com/KSAlmAkYcn

Well, let us focus on the work that he does rather than on his English skills, what do you say?
