Kamal Haasan hits hard at caste violence
 
Kamal Haasan’s viral tweet on a song, which he and maestro Ilayaraja wrote for his jinxed period historical drama Marudhanayagam and which speaks about social discrimination 300 years ago, draws a reference to the violence that broke out at Ponparappi Dalit settlement in Ariyalur district in Tamil Nadu on polling day (April 18).
 
That day, Ponparappi witnessed a hate crime aimed at the Dalits whose houses were ransacked and vehicles were stoned and people injured.
 
Kamal has pointed out that it is a shame that the lyrics of the song, which start with the line Madhamkondu Vandhadhu Saadhi, remind us that caste still figures in our contemporary social scene.
