THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Actor Harish Peradi took to his Facebook account to express his expectation that AN Shamseer, the Speaker of the Kerala Legislative Assembly, rectify his controversial statement. Hareesh Peradi insisted that AN Shamseer, who made anti-Hindu remarks, should openly acknowledge his error and extend an apology to the religious community.
The exclusion of other religious references while discussing matters of scientific awareness, focusing solely on one religion, has deeply wounded the faith of its followers. Hareesh highlighted that the Indian Constitution guarantees the freedom of belief, whether regarding myths or deities. Given his post, Shamseer bears the responsibility of safeguarding the faith of believers. However, instead of fulfilling this role, the Assembly Speaker’s remarks singled out a specific religion, leading to emotional distress among the followers.
Consequently, Hareesh Peradi emphasized the importance of Shamseer making amends by apologizing to the affected believers and rectifying his stance.
In his Facebook post, Hareesh also noted that the democratic believers across the country are anticipating Shamseer’s correction of his statement.
