CHENNAI: The 
Tamil Nadu police on Friday informed the Madras high court that appropriate action as per law would be taken on a 
complaint filed by Dravidar Viduthalai Kazhagam against actor 
Rajinikanth for his alleged remark against social reformer 
PeriyarE V Ramasamy.

However, state public prosecutor A Nagarajan told the court that Dravidar Viduthalai Kazhagam had rushed to the HC without exploiting other available avenues.

“There is no second thought that Periyar is a great leader and icon of Dravidian movement. But the actor claims that he made the statement only on the basis of an article published in a news magazine,” Nagarajan said.


Referring to a division bench judgment of the high court which had laid down the procedures to be adopted for approaching the high court seeking a direction to register an FIR, the prosecutor said the petitioner gave the complaint only on January 18. Without even waiting for the outcome of the result, the petitioner had directly approached the high court. Anyhow the action would be taken as per law, he added.

Recording the submissions, Justice P Rajamanickam wondered why the petitioner had hurried to the court without even waiting for at least 15 days from the date of filing the complaint. Moreover, the organisation must have approached the magistrate court first before moving the high court, the judge added.

As the counsel for the petitioner sought permission of the court to withdraw the plea, Justice Rajamanickam dismissed the petition as withdrawn.

According to the petitioner, Rajinikanth delivered the speech in the golden jubilee celebration of Tamil magazine Thuglak.

“Rajinikanth, who has proposed to enter politics, addressed the gathering during the meeting with false and fraudulent statements insulting Dravidian ideologists and followers of Thanthai Periyar. The speech was made with an intention to provoking breach of public peace and to create enmity and hatred among the people in the name of religion,” he said.

“In view of the same, I made a detailed complaint to the inspector of police, Triplicane 
police station, on January 18. However, the officer refused to register an FIR or even issue a CSR receipt as acknowledgement of receiving the complaint,” he added.
