The backdrop for these actions is the BBMP’s recent mandate for commercial establishments in Bengaluru. The protest also involved tearing down English posters in the city, urging the installation of billboards in Kannada. These actions are a response to the BBMP’s directive, instructing commercial establishments in the capital to incorporate at least 60% Kannada on their name boards by February 28, 2024, or risk losing their trade license, facing legal consequences.

The deadline has sparked tensions, triggering protests by pro-Kannada groups like the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike. While the promotion of regional languages is a commendable effort, the resort to violence by certain activists raises concerns about the methods used to enforce language rules. The BBMP’s intention to preserve and promote Kannada is clear, but the violent turn of protests may hinder constructive dialogue and understanding between authorities and the public.
