Kamal Haasan is a part-time politician. When he is bored, his team asks him to perform in front of live audience. Case in point: Voters in a Muslim-dominated area (by his own admission) of Karur district.
Sometimes, he sticks to the script and delivers just fine. But, on most occasions, he improvises and goes off script. Yesterday was one such day.
In light of his recent comments on Hindu terrorism, we have five questions for him.
First of all, what did he say?
"I am not saying this because this is a Muslim-dominated area, but I am saying this before a statue of Gandhi. Independent India's first terrorist was a Hindu, his name is Nathuram Godse," Haasan said in Tamil, while campaigning in Karur, Tamil Nadu.
Question No. 1
Does he know the difference between terrorist and murderer?
If Haasan were confused between a mass murderer and terrorist, I wouldn't have been surprised. By now, we know the IQ levels of these actor-types.
But, he called Nathuram Godse (a Hindu who killed Mahatma Gandhi) India's first terrorist.
While there is no universally accepted definition of terrorism, broadly speaking, it is directed against civilians. Acts of terrorism are "attempts to coerce governments into giving in to the demands of the perpetrators."
Technically speaking, how is Godse then a terrorist, much less a Hindu terrorist?
NATO's definition of terrorism; Haasan can bookmark it
NATO defines terrorism as, "The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence against individuals or property in an attempt to coerce or intimidate governments or societies to achieve political, religious or ideological objectives."
When it suits their narrative, they tell us terror has no religion. When it doesn't, they change their stand. They suffer from Hinduphobia, and use the technique of false equivalents to equate murder to an act of terror.
Either Haasan is dimwit or he wants to attack all Hindus.
Not that caste is important, but he's a certified hypocrite
