My proposal has met with hefty reactions. It is claimed that I intend to forbid people from using their own language, that I want to rid this country from foreigners and harm our attitude towards international business. This has nothing to do whatsoever with the matter of my proposal.
For example, I have no trouble at all with two friends speaking Surinamese with each other in the street. However, in some situations, with more people present, it is convenient for others to be able to understand what is being said. It is important that people are aware of the fact that they cannot be understood by others and take this into account in the public sphere.
