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.”

It was Godse 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.”

Haasan’s comment didn’t goes well down with the people and several politicians.

Vivek Oberoi took to Twitter and wrote, “Dear Kamal sir, you are a great artist. Just like art has no religion, terror has no religion either! You can say Ghodse was a terrorist, why would you specify ‘Hindu’ ? Is it because you were in a Muslim dominated area looking for votes? @ikamalhaasan.”


Haasan had said at the rally that he is not making those comments because he was speaking in a Muslim-dominated area. “I am not saying this because many Muslims are here. I’m saying this in front of Gandhi’s statue. The first terrorist post India’s independence is a Hindu. His name is Nathuram Godse,” the actor-turned-politician reportedly said.
