On Monday, Yuvan Shankar Raja put out a picture of himself, dressed in black, on Instagram and said, “Dark Dravidian. Proud Tamizhan.” The post assumes significance as it comes at a time when BJP leaders have been rallying to Ilaiyaraaja’s defense.

It all started with Ilaiyaraaja’s foreword for a book titled ‘Ambedkar & Modi: Reformers ideas, Performers Implementation’, where he likened Modi to Ambedkar and said that both were practical men who believed in action rather than mere thought exercises.
