The Government of India has announced that Indian Sign Language (ISL) will be taught as a subject in schools! Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that ISL will now be introduced into the country’s education system as a subject, which means that students can now choose to study it. For those who don’t know, superstar Ranveer Singh has been constantly urging the authorities to consider and declare Indian Sign Language as the 23rd official language of India.

The superstar has always raised her voice on social issues and also recently signed a petition aimed at promoting awareness of this cause. This government move has received overwhelming responses across the country. Prime Minister Modi also said that this inclusion will promote ISL and help more than 3 billion people with disabilities in the country, who currently rely on sign language to learn.

Ranveer Singh’s independent record label IncInk, which he has formed with Navzar Eranee, also released sign language music videos, the only record label to initiate this progressive step. Given Ranveer’s efforts to make Indian Sign Language an official language, the deaf community in India has wholeheartedly appreciated him and has also posted a heartfelt video of thanks for him.

Ranveer Singh is excited about the government’s decision to recognize ISL! He says: “For the first time, Indian Sign Language (ISL) has received the status of a language and I am proud that my country has taken such a progressive step towards promoting inclusion. This will greatly benefit many people and mark a monumental change regarding their rights. This step will create a ripple effect by giving them equal access and empowering the community to conquer the world. “

He adds: “The fact that students can learn ISL as a language will possibly help to eliminate the taboos that society has towards deaf citizens of our country. I’d say it was about time this happened. At IncInk Records, we have done our best to create the greatest awareness of the importance of ISL being declared a recognized language by providing support for the ISL petition and music videos to make the deaf and hard of hearing community feel more inclusive “.

Ranveer Singh credits the citizens of the country for constantly raising awareness on this important issue. He says: “We are delighted that the government has taken such a prominent and positive stance. I thank all the citizens of the country who participated in the signing of the petition to urge the government to declare ISL as a recognized language. Everyone has participated in their own way to usher in this day. It is a solid start in addressing issues related to the deaf community and we will continue to work to create as much awareness as possible in the days to come. “

His partner in the cause, Navzar, says: “We started IncInk to create art that inspires us, and with our song Vartalap we had the opportunity to feel beyond our senses and we took our first step to include the deaf community in our journey. We were soon informed about their struggles and used our platform to share their simple question, to declare Indian Sign Language as a recognized language in the country. “

It further states, “The Government’s commitment to include ISL in Indian education is a step towards fulfilling this request and we extend our appreciation to all who contributed to making this first step possible. IncInk continues to promise our support to make our art and all the privileges that the hearing population receives accessible to the deaf community. “
