COURT proceedings and judgements should be pronounced in local languages, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Friday while asserting that Indian languages should be prioritised.

Bhagwat cited various examples and said that foreign languages cannot translate the emotions and feelings of Indian languages appropriately. Since India is now independent, therefore people should also get the freedom to have court proceedings and pronouncement of judgements in their native languages, Bhagwat said. “Mother tongue (local language) should be the language of law,” Bhagwat said, while advocating the use of region-specific language in court proceedings and pronouncements of judgements.
