AGENCY Chennai: Actor Rajinikanth on Wednesday defended his stand lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah as Lord Krishna and Arjuna on the Kashmir issue. The praise was for the diplomatic way the two handled scrapping of Article 370 that gave special status for Jammu and Kashmir, he said. “The way they handled the Kashmir issue, they handled it in a diplomatic fashion,” he told reporters here, adding he likened them to Krishna and Arjuna to indicate that one came up with the plan and another executed it. Rajinikanth said Kashmir is a big issue and related to the nation’s security, adding the region has become a den for terrorists and extremists. “It is like a gateway of India for them to intrude into the country,” he said. Under such circumstances, in a diplomatic fashion, the Centre first imposed prohibitory orders, and then kept key leaders “like under house arrest.” Later, the Union government got the Bill first passed in Rajya Sabha where they do not have a majority and then went to the Lok Sabha.
