Filmmaker Kamal Haasan has said he is appalled at how his film Vishwaroopam has been construed to be against Muslims.

In a strongly worded letter on Thursday morning, copies of which were sent to media organisations, the acclaimed actor said: “While I am touched by the voices in support for me and my film, I am appalled at how my film is construed to be against my Muslim brothers.”

“My statements in favour of that community have marked me as a sympathizer. I have always gone beyond the call of my duty as an actor to voice my opinion in favour of what was humane and civil. I have been part of an organization called Harmony India which worked for Hindu Muslim amity.”

The actor said not only was he hurt by the accusations “of denigrating a community but my sensibilities are truly insulted.”

“I have been ruthlessly used as a vehicle by small groups who seek political profile. Icon bashing is a great way to be noticed when you are not one yourself. It is happening again and again. Any neutral and patriotic Muslim will surely feel pride on seeing my film. It was designed for that purpose.”

“Now I will rely on law and logic to come to our support. This kind of cultural terrorism will have to stop.”
