KAMAL HAASAN CAUGHT UP IN THE TRAP OF HIS OWN WORDS
Earlier this week, kamal Haasan had made a shocking statement in which he termed Mahatama Gandhi's assasin, Nathuram Godse as the first Hindu terrorist of our nation. Hassan's party,Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) had to come out to clarify the air of ambiguity around Hassan's statement by stating that actor turned politician's statement was taken out of context.
In response to Kamal Haasan's remark, BJP candidate from the Bhopal Lok Sabha seat, Pragya Thakur termed Nathuram Godse as a Deshbhakt.

Mr Singh said while talking to reporters in Patna.

All India Majlis e Ittehad Ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi has sided with Kamal Haasan on his remark and quoted that "The one who killed Mahatma Gandhi, whom we regard as Father of the Nation, what do we call him? We call him Mahatma or 'rakshas' (demon)? Call him terrorist or assassin? "
