Coimbatore: Non-violence as preached by Mahatma Gandhi was though very difficult to adopt in one's normal life but serious efforts can be taken to follow it, film star Kamal Hassan said yesterday.

One can achieve any thing in the life, if earnest efforts were made, one can follow difficult things like Ahimsa, as preached by Mahatma Gandhi, he said here.
Releasing a book 'Sathya Sodhanai', a Tamil translation of one of Gandhiji's books, he said Gandhiji was nobody's property and no political parties should own the Father of Nation.
Stating that politics and religion were two incurable diseases plaguing the society, Kamal Hasan said Gandhiji did not belong to any religion or political party and led a simple life for the uplift of poor and downtrodden.
The actor said he had been a 'hard critic' of Gandhi some years ago and after carrying out research for his film 'Hey Ram', he had become a true Gandhian and followed his ideals.
