Chennai. A judge was denied entry into a hall where a book release function was in progress. Where? Right here at the Capital of Tamilnadu i.e. Chennai. Who is the Judge? Justice D Hariparanthaman, a sitting Judge of Madras High Court. He was prevented from entering because he was in a dhoti. Strong criticism from several political leaders of the state ensued. Everyone wondered whether the national dhoti should be insulted like this in Hindusthan itself.
