Kamal Haasan First Terrorist Hindu Remark Slammed
Actor and Politician Kamal Haasan made a controversial comment while Campaigning for his party Makkal Needhi Maiam’s (MNM) candidate for the May 19 Assembly by-election in Aravakuruchi in Karur district Tamil Nadu on Sunday, that “The first terrorist of an independent India was a Hindu — Nathuram Godse.” It was Godse who shot dead Mahatma Gandhi on 30.1.1948 in New Delhi. “I am here to question that killing,” said Kamal Haasan.
On the ongoing row President of Tamil Nadu Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Tamilisai Soundararajan on Monday fired at actor-politician Kamal Haasan for saying that the first terrorist of independent India was a Hindu.
On Reacting to this remark by Kamal Haasan BJP leader Soundararajan in a tweet said recalling Gandhi’s assassination now and calling it Hindu terrorism was severely condemnable.
“Standing amidst minorities in TN by-election campaign, he is lighting a dangerous fire to gain votes by minority appeasement. Kamal didn’t opine on recent Sri Lanka bomb blast, why?” Soundararajan tweeted. “He threatened to leave India when his film “Vishwaroopam” screening was prevented by religious groups! But now he calls himself true Indian! True political acting started now having lost the chances in the screenplay,” he said.
