The Asian Age - - Nation -

Chen­nai, April 16: Vet­eran film di­rec­tor Bharathi­ra­jaa on Mon­day slammed top star Ra­jinikanth for his re­mark de­nounc­ing vi­o­lence against po­lice per­son­nel on the Cau­very is­sue, say­ing he should not drive a wedge be­tween the Tamil peo­ple. Mr Bharathi­ra­jaa, who is part of a proTamil cul­tural out­fit, asked Ra­jinikanth "how he can dub the demo­cratic Tamil protesters as those in­dulging in vi­o­lence."

On April 10, dur­ing mas­sive protests against the IPL match here, three po­lice per­son­nel were al­legedly at­tacked by protesters near the M A Chi­dambaram sta­dium. A day later, Ra­jinikanth, had come out against the at­tack say­ing, "the worst form of vi­o­lence is the as­sault on uni­formed per­son­nel."

"Please make con­scious com­ments, else you will be side­lined by the Tamil peo­ple and that day is not far away," Mr Bharathi­ra­jja told Ra­jinikanth, who is set to launch his po­lit­i­cal party soon.
