According to sources finding himself in the center of a raging controversy over his "free india's first extremist was a Hindu" remark, Makkal Needhi Maiyam founder kamal hassan Wednesday said he had only spoken about what was a 'historic truth.' Meanwhile, the actor cum politician asked his detractors to make "valid allegations", asking if he could cater to only one section of people after entering active politics.

Furthermore, he said truth would triumph like the "historic truth he mentioned." He said "Understand the meaning for the word extremist. I could have used the word terrorist or murderer (against Godse)... ours is active politics, there won't be any violence," while resorting to wordplay in Tamil to drive home his point. Meanwhile, the MNM leader alleged his speech was edited selectively and took a dig at his detractors, saying the charges leveled against him "apply to his media friends also."


Moreover stroking a controversy, Hassan had said on Sunday that "free india's first extremist was a Hindu", referring to Nathuram Godse who killed Mahatma Gandhi. He had said "He is not saying this because this is a Muslim-dominated area, but I am saying this before a statue of Gandhi. Free india's first extremist was a Hindu, his name is Nathuram Godse. There it (extremism, apparently) starts".
