The Shiv Sena on Monday pummeled entertainer turned-government official Kamal Hassan’s remarks on Nathuram Godse, saying his hypothesis is a “flop story” and a “pointless articulation”.
“Kamal Haasan is an excellent entertainer. Be that as it may, his hypothesis (on Nathuram Godse) is a failure story. Individuals don’t have compassion toward Godse. Hindus won’t endure it when their religion is connected with fear based oppression. There is no contrast between Kamal Haasan and Digvijaya Singh. It is a pointless articulation just to pick up attention,” Shiv Sena representative Sanjay Raut told correspondents here.
Haasan‘s allusion to Godse
Haasan, the head of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) had blended a contention by saying that the “principal psychological militant in autonomous India was a Hindu”, alluding to Godse, the man who killed Mahatma Gandhi.
“I am not saying this in light of the fact that numerous Muslims are here. I am stating this before Mahatma Gandhi’s statue. The main psychological oppressor in free India is a Hindu. His name is Nathuram Godse,” Haasan said while crusading in Tamil Nadu’s Aravakurichi gathering voting public on Sunday.
Haasan’s remarks drew boundless judgment from different pioneers crosswise over pioneers of BJP and Hindu utfits.
This adds up to impelling shared savagery, says Tamilisai
BJP state president Tamilisai Soundararajan said while the entire country was stunned when Gandhi was executed, none can, in any case, legitimize it, and called attention to that Godse was hanged for the “egregious” wrongdoing.
She said it was “firmly condemnable” that Mr. Haasan utilized the expression “Hindu radicalism” in a Muslim-commanded region.
“In spite of the fact that he discusses taking forward another sort of legislative issues, he likewise enjoyed the old, naughty, noxious and disruptive vote bank governmental issues,” Dr. Soundararajan said in an announcement. She said his comments added up to inducing “collective viciousness”.
In a clear reference to the fatal Easter bombings in Sri Lanka which left more than 250 dead, Dr. Soundararajan asked whether people like Mr. Haasan were vocal in examining the issue “regardless of being realized that culprits were Muslims.”
She said Mr. Haasan’s comments in a Muslim-ruled region were “underhanded and motivation driven.”
“In this manner such people’s battling ought to be restricted. The police should make a move since there is a push to make strain,” she included.
