Mumbai: Shiv Sena on Wednesday said Madrassas in India should be barred from using Urdu and Arabic as a medium of instruction and should be replaced with Hindi or English, while asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take a hint from UK government, warning that migrants on spousal visas who fail to speak English may face banishment.

The party hit at PM and his colleagues, by commenting that from where would they get the courage to fight enemies within the country? They are busy in getting investments into the country by touring others nations.

The government should show strength and start the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya and bring in the Uniform Civil Code.

“The British government is not wrong in thinking that Islamic State militants use uneducated Muslim women to propagate their ideas. Prime Minister Narendra Modi should take cues from the British government,” the Sena said in an editorial in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.

“India will benefit if the government can show courage like British Prime Minister David Cameron and bar madrassas from teaching in Urdu and Arabic and instead impart education in English and Hindi languages,” it opinioned.(inputs from agencies)

Amazon on Tuesday launched a new category of Alexa skills that would enable customers in India help Alexa learn Hindi and other Indian languages.

Using the new “Cleo” skill, Amazon allows users to teach Alexa more about Indian languages and culture by interacting with the voice assistant.

“During each round, Alexa will ask you to say at least five things in your language. She may ask you to say something specific in the chosen language or to just say anything at all,” the company said in a statement.

The process of creating new languages for Alexa benefits data availability, computing power and machine learning, in which systems improve organically as they incorporate more data.

Cleo’s availability in India will help improve Alexa’s language model and help her to gradually speak in local languages, the company added.
