Ilayaraja was harrassed in Bangalore airport by kannadiga police of Karnataka.
Its a well known fact that, Karnataka police used to act racist with Tamilains, though Tamils in Tamil Nadu are better in all ways comparing to Kannadigas in Karnataka.
Ilayaraja, along with Karthik Raja went to several temples in Mangalore and its surroundings and were on their way back to Chennai via Bangalore airport.
Ilayaraja, was honored with several national awards and is a well known figure in India.
While there was no issue at Mangalore airport, Karnataka’s kannadiga police at Bangalore airport, harassed maestro for more than an hour, forcing Karthik Raja and family to quarrel with kannadiga police.
Karthik Raja took few snaps of the harassment. Kannadiga police at one point declared that they can’t allow temple prasadam being carried in flights.
As the issue was taken up with senior officials, they rushed in to save their image. They requested Karthik to delete photos from the mobile, still HosurOnline managed to get a photo.
Later they allowed maestro to travel. The flight was delayed by an hour due to kannadiga police’s harassment to Ilayaraja.
Only we Tamils, as idiots do not look into the identity of politicians before voting for them, though they win to represent and develop their community in Tamil Nadu.
