Ranveer Lauds Decision To Recognize Sign Language


The Government of India has announced that Indian Sign Language (ISL) will be taught as a subject in schools and will be introduced in the education system at large. Lauding the decision to declare ISL as the 23rd official language of India, Ranveer Singh said in a statement, “For the first time, Indian Sign Language has been given the status of a language and I’m proud that my country has taken such a progressive step towards fostering inclusivity. This is going to tremendously benefit scores of people and mark a monumental shift regarding their rights. The step will create a ripple effect in providing equal access for them and empower the community to conquer the world.” Interestingly, Ranveer’s independent record label, IncInk, has also released sign language music videos.
