Kamal Haasan as we all know is no new to controversies. The actor turned politician recently hit the headlines once again over his controversial statement. The Tamil star recently received backlash over his comment that Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse, "independent India's first extremist" was Hindu. Post his statement, slippers were thrown at the actor and a police complaint was filed against him. Now, Kamal Haasan has defended his remarks and also said that it is not advisable to arrest him. His anticipatory bail petition is pending before the Madras High Court for his 'Hindu terrorist' speech. 

Speaking to reporters in Chennai, the founder of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) party said: "I am not afraid of getting arrested. At the same time, there will be tension if I am arrested. Hence it is better if I am not arrested." The Vishwaroopam actor also made it clear that he was not making a request not to arrest him but it was an advice not to take him into custody.

According to Haasan, the actor had made a similar statement in an election campaign earlier but only now the matter was blown up.

This guy is barely college-pass. What can you expect from the guy who hasn't studied history math and science? The sad part of all these is our country's fate is in the hands of uneducated self-proclaimed leaders!

Stupid politics from my favorite actor.

noone can speak truth in India anymore.
They have started worshipping Godse so it's unbearable for them to hear the truth.

Excellent sir
Kamal sir is great

He said this statement where Muslim population is more to earn their credits, does he dare to speak about numerous attacks made by Muslims terrorist and how they reach our country in same location??
Speaking bad about Hindu in Muslims populated area and Muslims in Hindu populated area, perfectionist in his acting skills, we have save ourselves from these actors who enters in to politics only for fame and to earn money.

Lost all respect to him after he joined politics. Who knew he was such person inside

Mark Anthony said brutus is an honourable man Kamal Hasan could have followed this method also so many wrongs were taking place which he avoided
One thing even big shots don't know what to talk in public
One has to eat his own words

Oh, so he has already planned for tensions to occur if he is been arrested, he dares to say that there will be tensions? Really, put him behind the bars and make him realize, he doesn't matter just because he owns a political party!

Little bit power given to Muslim celebrities of congress n they think they own country.
