Mumbai: Actor Vivek Oberoi has slammed Kamal Haasan for saying that independent India's first terrorist was a 'Hindu'. Oberoi, who is playing the lead role in PM Narendra Modi's soon-to-be-released biopic asked Haasan if his remark on the Hindu community was 'because he was speaking in a Muslim dominated area'. 

"Dear Kamal sir, you are a great artist. Just like art has no religion, terror has no religion either! You can say Ghodse was a terrorist, why would you specify ‘Hindu’? Is it because you were in a Muslim dominated area looking for votes?" Oberoi said in a tweet.

Speaking at a rally ahead of by-elections in Aravakurichi in Tamil Nadu on Sunday, the Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) founder said that Nathuram Godse was independent India's first terrorist. 

“I'm not saying this because this is a Muslim dominated area. I'm telling this because it’s in front of the Gandhi statue. Independent India's first terrorist was a Hindu. His name was Nathuram Godse. It starts from there. I'm Gandhi's great-grandson. I'm here to seek justice for that murder," he said.

"I'll thump my heart and say that I'm a good Indian and any Good Indian will want the country to be peaceful and equal to all. He will always want the tricolours of the national flag to remain the same always," he further added.

Aravakurichi goes for bypoll on May 19, the seventh and the last phase of Lok Sabha elections 2019. Meanwhile, BJP state unit has demanded that Haasan be arrested for his remarks.

Was not Nathuram Ghodse a Hindu? When Muslims are suspected without any real evidence or proof, they are arrested on terrorism charges and put in jail indefinitely with torture and abuse? There are tens of thousands of Muslim youths who have been arrested, jailed, tortured and abused for many years in India without any chance of trial, parole or freedom? How can you call India a democratic country and still discriminate against the minorities especially Muslims? Even the PM Modi has purposely committed and orchestrated the communal attacks on innocent Muslim men, women and children in Gujarat state and now he has become the PM. What kind of justice is this? You all Indians must be ashamed for making him a PM. He and his BJP colleagues are trying deliberately and intentionally to make India a Hindu State and get rid of the Secularism in India. It is the duty and responsibility of every human being to fight out such criminals and save the democracy and secularism in India Now. May Allah swt give us guidance and strength to make India a pure secular and democratic state-Aameen. SAVE INDIA AND WAKE UP.
