“I am not observant this since this is a Muslim-dominated area, though we am observant this before a statue of Gandhi. Free India’s initial militant was a Hindu, his name is Nathuram Godse. There it (terrorism, apparently) starts,” he said.
Haasan pronounced he had come here “seeking answers for that murder,” referring to Gandhi’s assassination in 1948.
“Good Indians enterprise for equivalence and wish a 3 colours in a tricolour to sojourn intact. we am a good Indian, will proudly broadcast that,” he added.
