Will seriously think of leaving India if such row erupts again: Kamal
On the issue of Muslims opposing his film, the actor further said that for him, there is no religion. "For me there is people. I really do love them (Muslims). I request India, my Muslim brothers, Christian brothers, Sikh brothers to avoid such things. We have so much more to do to take India forward.
"I don't know what I did to deserve this. Artistes are the front bumpers of our vehicles. Do not disrespect us. The amount of support I got from the Muslim community is unbelievable. They apologised."
Muslim organisations had earlier demanded that the film be screened to them prior to its release, expressing concern over the depiction of the community in the movie.
"I was angry and I still am. I don't want to pinpoint to anyone. This country was very big, but was fragmented on baseless issues," Haasan said.
He sought to know why he was being accused of hatred.
"I mean no harm. The film is not about hurting Muslims. The good Muslims in the films are Indians and bad Muslims are terrorists who are not from India. How can I paint terrorist...terrorism white," he said.
"Muslims who were arrested for holding protests against the film were misled by rabble rousers," he said adding, "They are my brothers, forgive them."
"Kamal Haasan has never been accused of painting the Muslims in bad light. Islam is not targeting me...it is the politics...it is not religion. Rather, there are few Muslims,
I remember one Muslim
