Karnataka has the highest percentage of linguistic minorities of any state in
India (also the lowest percentage of majority mother-tongue speakers, i.e. Kannada) of any
state, so much turmoil over the rights of minorities: Tamils especially, but also Telugus,
Konkanis, Tulus, Kodagus.
Recently much turmoil over this in press reports, including state ban on
films not made in Kannada!
