Bisnis.com, JAKARTA – February 21 is celebrated as Mother Language Day. In this regard, President Joko Widodo alias Jokowi asks some pretty intriguing questions about the use Mother tongue Daily.

“Do you still speak your mother tongue?” So was the question on President Jokowi’s official account.

The President also recalled the richness and diversity of ethnicities and languages ​​in Indonesia.

<< Indonesia is truly rich in diversity, inhabited by over a thousand ethnic groups speaking over 700 local language and mother tongue. Everything is united by the Indonesian language, ”he said.

Regarding President Jokowi’s tweet, a number of comments emerged.

The President began his teasing with the question “To all of you across the country: How are you? ” or how do you go across the country to get various answers in several regional languages.

Besides the comments that focus on the issue of mother tongue use, there are other comments as well.

Here are some comments from internet users concerning the use of the mother tongue in everyday life.

“In my area, a call to mother ‘MAK. She is the most meaningful woman in my life …” the account @ kasrulsani9 briefly said.
The @ryufujiyama account tweeted, “I still support the language that exists in Indonesia. I’m surprised there are so many ways to say How are you doing in Indonesia.”

Meanwhile, the @fjrptrrhmn account has corrected how you are in Minang. “Sir, who is the linguist? Btw Minang is not a language?” “but” baa kabanyo? he said.

The @ Stella_Gobel29 account admits that they still use their native language. “Again sir … and so on because we love Indonesia,” he said.

Quoted on Wikipedia, the International Mother Language Day held on February 21 aims to promote linguistic awareness and cultural diversity as well as to promote multilingualism.

International Mother Language Day was first announced by UNESCO on November 17, 1999 and was officially recognized by the United Nations General Assembly after the adoption of United Nations resolution 56/262 [2] year 2002.

Mother Language Day is part of an initiative “to promote the preservation and protection of all languages ​​spoken by the peoples of the world” as adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on May 16, 2007 in resolution 61/266 of the United Nations, which also designated 2008 as the International Year of the Language.

The idea of ​​celebrating International Mother Language Day is an initiative of Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, February 21 is a commemorative day when Bangladeshis (then in East Pakistan) fought for recognition of the Bangla language. It is also celebrated in West Bengal, India.

International Mother Language Day is a national holiday in Bangladesh. The resolution was suggested by Rafiqul Islam and Abdus Salam, Bengalis who live in Vancouver, Canada.

They wrote a letter to Kofi Annan on January 9, 1998, asking him to take action to save the world’s languages ​​from extinction by announcing International Mother Language Day.
