Description

Kamal Haasan, an actor and leader of the Makkal Neethi Maiam party, has been accused of spreading Christianity in Tamil Nadu and employing Christians in Hindu temples.

Similarly,  some social media users have been putting together a number of short video footage of actor Kamal Haasan speaking for a few seconds and spreading it on social websites. We decided to explore its authenticity.

Fact Check:

The 25-second video that was circulated that Kamal Haasan spoke at an American university was not spoken in the United States. He was speaking to students at an event held at IIT Mumbai in 2010. A video of the 1.21-hour conversation titled “Kamal hassan at IIT Bombay – Avenues’2010” has been released on a YouTube channel.


From the video above, Kamal Haasan talks about working at the Christian Arts and Communication Center. In it, he is only saying that I worked for a company that spreads Christianity for a salary even though I was a rationalist. But, as stated in the viral records, there is no talk of implicitly spreading Christianity, or of banning Hindu temples, or of the Treasury.

In the 40th minute of this video, a person from Chennai told Kamal Haasan, “I am asking the same question asked by Madhavan in Anbe Sivam and Asin in Dasavathaaram. Do you have faith in God? Kamal replied, “No.” Next, you said you spread Christianity, still? “I even used a typewriter for that …” he laughed.

கமல்ஹாசன் அமெரிக்காவில் பேசியதன் தமிழாக்கம் என்றே பதிவுகளில் குறிப்பிடப்பட்டு உள்ளது. அமெரிக்காவின் ஹார்வர்டு பல்கலைக்கழகத்தில் கமல்ஹாசன் பேசிய 52 நிமிட வீடியோ ஒன்று கிடைத்தது. அதிலும், இந்து கோவில்கள் தடையாக இருப்பதாகவோ அல்லது கிறிஸ்தவத்தை மறைமுகமா பரப்புவதாகவோ எங்கும் கூறவில்லை.

A short video is taken from an old video of Kamal Haasan interview with the BBC and is spreading the word. In this video, I was told on stage in Maharashtra that I could not dance when I broke my leg. Therefore, I worked at the Christian Arts and Communication Center. It is the work of spreading the word of Jesus throughout the world, ”he said in the 3rd minute. Other than that, nothing is said as stated in the records.

 

 

Explanation

Kamal Haasan has spoken openly in many places about his work at the Christian Arts and Communication Center. But nowhere does it say that Christianity is indirectly spreading Christianity, that Hindu temples are a barrier to it. If Kamal Haasan had made such a statement, not only the media but also those who opposed him would have argued about his statement, but such misconceptions are spread only on social networking sites.
