TN Congress Committee president K.S. Alagiri urges Rajinikanth to read Mahabharata
In previously actor Rajinikanth had commended PM and Union Minister in the issue of Article 370, Rajinikanth had compared them with Krishna and Arjuna. While Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president K.S. Alagiri urged him to read properly the Mahabharata and understand it.
He said, “Rajinikanth is a good man. He does not think of anything bad against anyone. He has an interest in spirituality. Hence, it is very surprising that he made the comparison,” he said.
He also said, “How can those who snatched away the rights of crores of people be Krishna and Arjuna? Dear Rajinikanth, kindly read the Mahabharata again. Read it properly,” he said.
“Spirituality is not related to religion. It is the belief that there is a force bigger than us, and (is about) following discipline, straightforwardness and peaceful and happy life based on that belief, and not doing anything that causes harm to others and loving everyone,” he said.
“Why didn’t the BJP withdraw the special status given to Himachal Pradesh Karnataka, Coorg, and seven northeastern States the way it abrogated Article 370 in Kashmir? Isn’t it because Kashmir is a Muslim-majority region?” He asked.
“Does our hero Baasha, who raises his voice against injustice, then accept that Amit Shah’s policies are that of one rule for Kashmir and another for the other States with a special status?” He said.
Meanwhile, BJP state president Tamilisai Soundararajan said, “One actor is saying everyone is expressing their opinions without knowing anything about Kashmir. One actor quotes Periyar while addressing this issue,” she said.
And also actor Vijay Sethupathi said that Periyar has said long ago that people should have solved their problems. One can’t go into another person’s home and make decisions for them. You can show interest in their lives, but cannot make decisions. Only they know what issues they face.”
