Kamal Haasan, the legendary actor of Bollywood and South Indian cinema has sparked a controversy. While campaigning for his political party Makkal Needhi Maiam’s candidate for the May 19 Assembly by-election in Aravakuruchi in Karur district on Sunday, Haasan said, “The first terrorist of an independent India was a Hindu – Nathuram Godse.”
This area is a Muslim dominant, so the reason is clear why he said so? In order to get Muslim votes. Moving to history, Nathuram Godse was the man who shot dead Mahatma Gandhi on January 30, 1948, in New Delhi. Referring to Gandhi’s killing, Haasan added, “I am here to question that killing.”
However, Kamal’s smart move to get Muslim votes didn’t go well with many in the country and they accused Kamal of spreading hatred among the people on religious basis. One of them were Vivel Oberoi and Payal Rohtagi. These actors openly slammed Kamal Haasan for his irrelevant remark.
Vivek Oberoi took to the Twitter and wrote,
The actor further wrote,
On the other hand, Payal Rohtagi who is in news currently for taking a dig at other celebrities, this time slammed Kamal Haasan.
Whereas, KT Rajendra Balaji, a leader of BJP’s Tamil Nadu ally AIADMK said that Kamal Haasan’s tongue should be chopped off for his remarks on Hindu terror. He said, “His tongue should be cut of…he has said (free India’s first extremist) was a Hindu. Extremism has no religion, neither Hindu nor Muslim nor Christian.”
This is so bad that how famous people or actors like Kamal Haasan who are role models for the fans mislead them on the basis of religion in order to increase their vote bank. With such instigate words, one thing is clear that such people don’t want to become a politician for the betterment of the country but to come in power and to fill their banks with black money.
