Makkal Needhi Mariam founder Kamal Haasan tweeted "Neither 12 Alwars nor 63 Nayanmars gave the religious note 'Hindu'. We were named 'Hindus' either by Mughals or those who ruled earlier. British who ruled and returned seconded that adjective. When we have our own identities how ignorant to embrace an outsider given name as our name or religion. Though our identity as 'Indian' is recent it would live beyond times. To think of shrinking our wide nation within religion is commercially, politically and spiritually wrong. If we live together we would get crore benefits. How many times this proverb has been told to Tamilians".
I stand with @kamalhaasan
