Did Kamal Haasan say that casteism increases through reservation?
Caste rage is further exacerbated by reservation. Reservation is not necessary if caste is to be eradicated. They must come to the top in life according to their merit. This requires hard work – Kamal Haasan
Kamal Haasan, leader of the MNM party, said, “Reservation cause furthers caste hatred. Reservation is not needed if caste is to be eradicated. ”
On March 23, the Dinakaran newspaper published this news item under the headline “I will not ask my groom for caste: Kamal says”. The news has also been published on the Dinakaran website.
According to the report, Kamal Haasan had spoken about the reservation at the election campaign public meeting of the MNM in Puliyakulam area. While searching for the videos related to the meeting held in Puliyakulam area, a campaign video was found.
In the 29.24th minute, “Many of the asking to that Y=you have been caste removed from the application form, is it’ll eradicate the caste? my answer is yes, gradually it will happen a little bit by bit. I will take caste in my application accordingly. Next step, I will not ask who my friend is. I will not ask what caste the groom is going to come to me. This is true. That is how caste will disappear. It is not enough to just give a reservation. You have to say “you are my brother”. That is the real way to get rid of caste. ”
In our search, the newspaper claimed that the Kamal Haasan says that “caste hysteria is further exacerbated by reservation” is false news. No such words against the reservation were said by Kamal in recent campaign times.
