Kamal Haasan defends his comment on Nathuram Godse; Read Details

India’s Lok Sabha polls are finally coming to an end. The final phase will be conducted on May 19 (Sunday) and the results will be declared on May 23.

The veteran actor faced a lot of backlash over this and now Haasan has reacted over the controversy. Speaking to reporters in Chennai, the founder of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) party leader said: “I am not afraid of getting arrested. At the same time, there will be tension if I am arrested. Hence it is better if I am not arrested.”

Earlier, Kamal while campaigning for a by-poll in Tamil Nadu’s Karur district had said, “I am not saying this because this is a Muslim-dominated area, but I am saying this before a statue of Gandhi. Independent India’s first extremist (theevravaadi) was a Hindu, his name is Nathuram Godse. There it starts.”

The ‘Vishwaroopam’ actor also made it clear that he was not making a request not to arrest him but it was his advice not to take him into custody. Kamal Haasan has always spoken on social issues and through his films has always tried to make a difference.
