While campaigning for his party Makkal Needhi Maiam's candidate for the May 19 Assembly by-election in Aravakuruchi in Karur district on Sunday, Haasan said: "The first terrorist of an independent India was a Hindu - Nathuram Godse."

 

It was Godse who shot dead Mahatma Gandhi on January 30, 1948 in New Delhi.

 

Referring to Gandhi's killing, Haasan added: "I am here to question that killing."

 

Haasan's comment did not go down well with a section of netizens, including several politicians.

 

Vivek, who is a vocal supporter of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), was also not impressed.

 

In a Twitter post to the senior actor, Vivek wrote: "Dear Kamal sir, you are a great artiste. Just like art has no religion, terror has no religion either! You can say Godse was a terrorist, why would you specify ‘Hindu'? Is it because you were in a Muslim dominated area looking for votes?

 

"Please sir, from a much smaller artiste to a great one, let's not divide this country, we are one. Jai Hind."
