It seems Kamal Haasan himself apparently doesn’t want the controversy and protests surrounding him to die down. In a fresh tweet, the Makkal Needhi Maiam has called his opponents as extremists.
“Dear MNM family and fans, this is an acid test for our decorum and demeanour. Do not listen to their noises and be drawn into their violence. They are extremists who are slighted by the Truth. Naalai Namadhey!” he said.
The fresh tweet has caused a new controversy, as it is being felt that Kamal was referring to BJP and AIADMK leaders and cadres, who are opposed to his Hindu terrorist remark, as extremists.
On Wednesday, the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court today dismissed a petition seeking to stop Makkal Needhi Maiam president Kamal Haasan from campaigning in the by-poll to four Assembly constituencies for his anti-Hindu remark
Hearing a petition filed against Kamal by an advocate Saravanan, the court said that Election Commission (EC) should only decide on whether to allow the MNM founder to continue campaigning or not.
As his ‘Hindu extremist’ remark in Aravakurichi created a political storm, Kamal Haasan has said he only spoke about a historical fact.
The Makkal Needhi Maiam president 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 Tirupparankundram near Madurai.
Meanwhile, chappals were hurled towards a vehicle from which Kamal Haasan was addressing an election meeting in the Tirupparankundram Assembly constituency on Wednesday evening.
