Chennai, May 17: A day after two unidentified persons purportedly thrown stones during his bypoll campaign, Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) founder Kamal Haasan on Friday said that he feels the quality of polity is going down.
“I don’t feel threatened. Every religion has their own terrorist, we cannot claim that we are sanctimonious. History shows that all religions have their extremists”, he told media.
On protest over his Nathuram Godse remark, the MNM chief stated ” I am not afraid of being arrested. Let them arrest me”
“If they do that it will only create more problems. It is not a warning but only an advice”, he added.
Following his remark ‘first terrorist in independent India was a Hindu’, the BJP and its Tamil Nadu ally AIADMK and some Hindu outfits have targeted Haasan on the issue saying he cannot mix up an assassination with terror and link it to Hindus.
