After outrage against his comments, Kamal Haasan takes a u-turn, says ‘plebiscite no longer relevant’ in Kashmir

Following such harsh criticisms, Kamal Haasan was forced to take a U-turn, saying that his comment on demanding 'plebiscite in Kashmir' was reported out of context.

Actor turned politician, Kamal Haasan, after being called out on social media for his controversial comment where he demanded a plebiscite in Kashmir and referred to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir as ‘Azad Kashmir’, has been forced to make a U-turn.

Kamal Haasan, president of a year old party, Makkal Needhi Maiam, echoing the sentiments of the terrorist state of Pakistan, had sought a ‘referendum’ in Jammu and Kashmir.

Haasan’s controversial comments took Twitter by a storm as many came forward to question his loyalties towards the country and mocking his ignorance.

Following such harsh criticisms, Kamal Haasan was forced to take a U-turn, saying that his comment on demanding ‘plebiscite in Kashmir’ was reported out of context.

His party also issued a clarification saying that the English media had completely twisted their president’s statement. In a press statement released by Makkal Needhi Maiam dated February 18, the party said that the reference which was made in the English news channel reports, were mentioned by their president in the context of a magazine article published about three decades ago about an option present then and that it was no longer relevant today and in no way an indication of his or his Party’s position.

Justifying the frivolous comment by their president, the party furthered that its president and all the members stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the armed forces in this hour of grief.

Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan recently declaring that his new party would contest all 40 seats in Tamil Nadu in the national election, due by May, made parting shots at DMK president MK Stalin for discovering the concept of “grama sabha” from a new entrant like him into politics, and Rajnikant on his stand about contesting only the “assembly polls” and not “parliamentary polls”.
