Kamal Haasan launches ‘mor(e)on’ jibe against Subramanian Swamy after BJP MP calls actor-turned-politician ‘moron’


Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan has hit out at BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP with a witty mor(e)on jibe after the latter addressed him as a ‘moron’ on Twitter for his hard-hitting video response to Home Minister Amit Shah on his alleged attempts to impose Hindi on non-Hindi speakers including Tamilians.

Swamy had astonishingly tweeted, “Moron Kamalahasan and DMK Chief Stalin are howling about imposition of Hindi. What about their imposition that no Hindi will be taught in TN? Let Hindi be an optional third language and the choice on which language to opt left to the student.”

Asked to react on Swamy’s moron jibe, Kamal Haasan said, “Mor(e)on Subramanian Swamy later. Let me clarify, I will say mor(e)on Subramanian Swamy later. No mor(e)on on Subramanian Swamy in this interview.

Earlier, in a special video message, Haasan had warned Shah of dire consequences if he dared imposing Hindi on people of Tamil Nadu.

He said. “The unity in diversity is a promise that we made when we made India into a Republic. Now, no Shah, Sultan or Samrat must relent on that promise. We respect all languages, but our mother language will always be Tamil.”

Haasan added, “Jallikattu was just a protest. The battle for our language will be exponentially bigger than that. India or Tamilian does not need or deserve such a battle.”

On Saturday, Shah had said an event that it was the responsibility of the nation that Hindi develops and prospers, while maintaining that India must have one language to reflect its identity.
