The Makkal Needhi Maiam expressed hope that the Supreme Court will uphold justice in the sedition case filed against 49 eminent personalities pointing out that the case was against the letter and spirit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s aspirations of ‘harmonious India. ’Four days after the FIR was registered on the directions of a court in Muzaffarpur in Bihar, Kamal Haasan took to Twitter to express solidarity with the 49 personalities, including directors Aparna Sen, Adoor Gopalakrishnan and writer-columnist Ramachandra Guha, who were booked on the charges of sedition.
“The Prime Minister seeks a harmonious India. His statements in the Parliament confirm it. Should not the state and its law follow it in letter and spirit? Nearly, 49 of my peers have been accused, of sedition, contradicting the PM’s aspirations,” the actor turned politician wrote on Twitter.
