AIADMK leader wants Kamal Haasan’s tongue to be cut off for ‘first terrorist was Hindu’ remark
Kamal Haasan's controversial statement has irked many leaders. AIADMK leader KT Rajendra Balaji wants Haasan's tongue to be cut off for his remark.
Actor and founder of the party Makkal Needhi Maiyam (MNM), Kamal Haasan often remains in news either for his movies or controversial statements. He has grabbed the headlines yet again with his statement where he said that “free India’s first terrorist was a Hindu”. His indication was towards Nathuram Godse who killed Mahatma Gandhi in 1948. This has triggered many; one of them is All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader (AIADMK) KT Rajendra Balaji who wants Haasan’s tongue to be cut off for his remark.
While talking about terrorism, the actor said, “I am not saying this because this is a Muslim-dominated area, but I am saying this before a statue of Gandhi. Free India’s first terrorist was a Hindu, his name is Nathuram Godse. There it starts.”
He further said, “I’m here to seek justice for that murder. I’ll thump my heart and say that I’m a good Indian and any Good Indian will want the country to be peaceful and equal to all. He will always want the tricolours of the national flag to remain the same always”
This remark was made by the actor while he was campaigning for his party’s candidate in Aravakurichi, Tamil Nadu.
This irked KT Rajendra Balaji and he said, “Kamal Haasan’s tongue should be cut off for his remarks on Hindu terror. He made these remarks to gain votes of minorities. We can’t blame entire community for act of 1 individual. EC should take action against the actor & ban his party.”
