Lok Sabha elections have entered its 7th and last phase and political leaders are still trying tooth and nail to polarise the electoral process. On Sunday, during a rally in a Muslim majority city, while addressing more than ten people, actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan claimed that Nathuram Godse was the first Hindu terrorist of Independent India.
Earlier, while countering the ‘Hindutva Terrorism’ term infamously coined by the Congress party, PM Modi said in a roaring voice “A Hindu can never be a terrorist!”. Soon after his statement, the opposition started bringing out cases where a Hindu has done violence, although carefully excluding Rajiv Gandhi from the list.
In a similar attempt, a Muslim man decided to convert to Hinduism right before joining ISIS so as to quash Modi’s claim that a Hindu can never be terrorist. If rumours are to be believed the Muslim man is also going to join RSS and demand the building of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya after conversion so that the opposition is also able to attack him using terms like ‘Sanghi’. More on this awaited.
