Kamal Haasan: Any patriotic Muslim will feel pride on seeing Vishwaroopam

As Tamil Nadu banned the release of Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam by 15 days, the actor released an official statement calling it ‘cultural terrorism’

Kamal Haasan thanks his supporters for standing by him through this on-going crisis that his movie Vishwaroopam has been facing. The film which was supposed to release on January 25 has now been banned in Tamil Nadu for two weeks. The actor chose to react to the decision through an official statement which we are producing below:

“Dear Friends,

While I am touched by the voices in support for me and my film, I am appalled at how my film is construed to be against my Muslim brothers.

My statements in favour of that community have marked me as a sympathizer. I have always gone beyond the call of my duty as an actor to voice my opinion in favour of what was humane and civil. I have been part of an organization called Harmony India which worked for Hindu Muslim amity.

I am not only hurt by these accusations of denigrating a community but my sensibilities are truly insulted.

I have been ruthlessly used as a vehicle by small groups who seek political profile. Icon bashing is a great way to be noticed when you are not one yourself. It is happenning again and again. Any neutral and patriotic Muslim will surely feel pride on seeing my film. It was designed for that purpose.

Now I will rely on law and logic to come to our support. This kind of cultural terrorism will have to stop.

I thank those who rose to the occasion and to my support on the Internet.

Kamal Haasan”.

Do you think Vishwaroopam‘s ban should be lifted?
