Case against Kamal Hassan over Hindu terror remarks

Case against Kamal Hassan over Hindu terror remarks”

Writing in a Tamil weekly news magazine, the popular star said, "The right wing can not challenge talk of Hindu terrorists because terror has spread into their camp as well. Terror has spread into their camp as well".

Haasan, in a weekly column on Thursday, took on the right-wing groups, saying that these outfits can not deny the existence of "Hindu terror".

Haasan has been booked under sections 500 (Punishment for defamation), 511, 298 (hurting religious sentiment), 295-A (intend to outrage religious feelings), and 505-C (attempt to incite hatred enmity between classes) of the Indian Penal Code. The matter will be heard on Saturday.

His comment came after Kamal wrote in a Tamil magazine that earlier rightwing Hindus used to argue but without indulging in violence. Once this approach started failing they have resorted to muscle power.

"In the past, Hindu right-wing groups would not indulge in violence but hold a dialogue with opposite parties on their arguments". He further said: "The right-wing can not challenge anyone asking the question: show me one Hindu terrorist".

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy responded to Haasan's claim of "Hindu terror" and called him a "morally corrupt person".

BJP national spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao compared the actor with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saee and said that by passing such remarks all these people have given Pakistan an upper hand.

"Such terror activities will not help them in any which way... truth alone triumphs... Congratulations", Haasan wrote in an apparent address to Vijayan.

"Haasan also has a close tie with the Left Democratic Front (LDF) in Kerala and completely closes his eyes to the kind of violence and red terror that has been perpetrated there". The veteran actor is expected to make some significant announcement on his plans to enter politics Novemeber 7, his birthday.
