Since then, BJP, AIADMK, Sangh and Hindu Mahasabha have been protesting against Hassan.
“Stated Facts,” Says Kamal Hasan
Hassan said, What I said is a historical fact. It’s quoted out of context. How can I target a religion? I challenge you to show one instance of me inciting discord,”.
He further said, “I understand the meaning of the word radical, that’s why I used it for terror or killer (against Godse). We are active in politics. We will never do violence. They say that I have hurt Hindu sentiments. There are many Hindus in my family. My daughter is also a Hindu. Don’t talk about my ideology, you will lose. My ideology is Honesty, which you do not have. You can stay anywhere in Delhi or Chennai, you can not fool people by telling lies for a long time,”.
