Only spoke about what was a 'historic truth': Haasan

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Madurai: Finding himself in the centre of a raging controversy over his "free India's first extremist was a Hindu" remark, Makkal Needhi Maiam founder Kamal Haasan yesterday said he had only spoken about what was a 'historic truth.'

His party claimed that his comments in this connection on Sunday had been taken "completely out of context."

Truth will be bitter and bittenress can turn into a medicine, curing people's disease, Haasan said.

In his first response after the Sunday remarks that landed him in trouble with court and police cases, the actor-politician asked his detractors to make "valid allegations", asking if he could cater to only one section of people after entering active politics.

"They got angry for what I spoke at Aravakurichi. What I spoke (there) is historic truth. I did not lure anyone to a brawl," he said during a by-poll campaign at Tirupurankundram near here.

He said truth would triumph like the "historic truth I mentioned" and not caste and religion.

"Understand the meaning for the word extremist. I could have used the word terrorist or murderer (against Godse)... ours is active politics, there won't be any violence," he said while resorting to wordplay in Tamil to drive home his point.

The MNM leader alleged that his speech was edited selectively and took a dig at his detractors, saying the charges levelled against him "apply to my media friends also."
