Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has made it clear that the government is not and will not force any hindu organisation-run school to teach Fiji Hindi to their students.
Hindu organisations like Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha and TISI Sangam have told the media that they will oppose moves by the government for conversational Fiji Hindi to be taught in schools because it is a broken language.
However, Bainimarama stressed to LegendFM News that as the head of the government, he wants to make it clear that these schools will not be forced into doing this.
Bainimarama says the school is owned by these organisations so they can teach whatever Hindi they prefer.
The Prime Minister says that he also agrees they should teach formal Hindi even if they speak Fiji Hindi.
