Kamal Haasan’s key aide insults APJ Abdul Kalam, angers Tamilians

Kamal Hassan visited APJ Abdul Kalam’s house before launching his party Makkal Needhi Maiam, in a bid to get the blessings of the great scientist’s family.


However, it has emerged that one of his key aides, Bharathi Krishnakumar who figures in the first list of his party’s office bearers, holds a low opinion of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. He had insulted Dr Kalam at a book release function in January 2017. Bharathi Krishnakumar is a left-leaning documentary filmmaker and a former CPI(M) member.


Translation of Bharathi Krishnakumar’s comments on Dr APJ Abdul Kalam is below.

Everyone says, Dr Abdul Kalam lived an austere lifestyle. If he lived so simple, then how are we living? Are we wearing a golden underwear? Not only Kalam, our entire nation is living with simplicity. So there is no point in saying Kalam lived with simplicity and he has not misused government powers.

Also, he sold his books in the post office. As a book writer, we all know it’s a crime. How come a president can sell his book on the post office and earn money from it. Did he open his mouth on 2000 Gujarat issue? Everyone naming Abdul Kalam as a scientist. But when asked about what he invented, no one answers it. The title of ‘scientist’ is given to Kalam by himself, not others.

Mr Bharathi Krishnakumar told The Hindu,  “ Mr Haasan and I have a mutual understanding,” in a report published recently on February 24th. Does Kamal Hassan share Bharathi Krishnakumar’s insulting assessment of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam? Is Kalam’s name being used by Kamal Hassan to enhance his own image in politics? Tamil Nadu and the entire country would like to hear the answer to this question.
