‘Inner Voice Said Bharat Jodne Ki Koshish Karo…’: Kamal Haasan on Why He Participated in Rahul’s Red Fort Yatra

The Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) leader said people advised him not to go to the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Delhi on Saturday. Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan said as he joined Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra in Delhi after hearing his inner voice say “Bharat jodne ki koshish karo, todne ki nahi” (try to unite India instead of dividing).
The Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) leader, who revealed last week that Rahul Gandhi had invited him to the Delhi leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, said several people encouraged him not to attend the meeting in the national capital. “Before coming here, many people told me not to go since it might impact my political future,” Haasan remarked to a crowd outside the Red Fort.
However, he was moved by an inner voice to come here to save India from enmity. “This is the time when my country most needs me…. He remarked, “I heard my inner voice saying Bharat jodne ki koshish karo, todne ki nahi” (try to unify India rather than divide it).
He stated that Rahul Gandhi is the grandson of Pandit Jawarharlal Nehru and the son of a Congressman. “Many people have asked me why I’m here. As an Indian, I’m here. My father was a member of Congress. I had different views and formed my own political party, but when it comes to the country, all political party boundaries must merge. “I crossed that border and got here,” Haasan was cited by Hindustan Times as stating.
“This yatra has no political goals, but it raises its voice against unemployment, price rises, China’s war on India, and enmity in the nation,” he stated.
Haasan also accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not wearing masks and of attempting to sabotage the Yatra under the guise of Covid.
Shehzad Poonawalla, BJP National Spokesperson, criticised Haasan for attending the Bharat Jodo Yatra, claiming the actor had sought a plebiscite in Kashmir and chastised Hindus.
Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi claimed that animosity in the name of Hindu-Muslim is being pushed 24 hours a day, seven days a week on television in order to deflect people’s attention away from the genuine concerns. “We launched our yatra from Kanyakumari with the goal of unifying people and putting a stop to nafrat” (hatred).
I had the impression that there was animosity everywhere, but as I began walking, I saw that this was not the case. TV stations are constantly propagating hatred and performing Hindu-Muslim, Hindu-Muslim. But, contrary to popular belief, this is not the case. “This country is one, and everyone loves and welcomes everyone other; there is no enmity,” he remarked.
The yatra, which began on September 7 in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, has covered over 3,000 kilometres in 46 districts spanning nine states, including Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Telengana, Andra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Haryana. After travelling through Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Punjab, the Yatra will have a nine-day winter vacation before resuming its trip to Jammu & Kashmir on January 3.
