Returning all donations received for my political debut: Kamal Haasan

Returning all donations received for my political debut: Kamal Haasan”

"I'm on people's journey". Moreover, stressing about his Hindu terror remarks, the actor said, "Cases have been filed against me..."

Haasan also said he was returning the donations sent to him for his yet-to-be launched party, saying "it'll be illegal to keep the money without any infrastructure", since he has not fixed a date or name for his new political venture, reported NDTV. He chose to take a step back and said he comes from a "Hindu family" himself.

The actor also wrote that he "would not hesitate to come to Varanasi", Lok Sabha constituency of prime minister Narendra Modi, if that is what the people wanted.

"The moment people started sending the money itself, the political party had begun".

The column came weeks after reports claimed that he had collected Rs 30 crore from fans to fund his proposed party. "They started indulging in violence", he wrote.

"The truth is even I can't arrange for that much money on my own", he wrote. When Hindus they say we are big their hearts too ought to be big. "I have been there while shooting for Hey Ram", he added elaborating his future plans.

The petitioner said that the actor must be arrested for portraying every Hindu as a terrorist. "I am still maintaining that extremism is spreading but I didn't use the word terrorism", he said.

"They say that like water and oil, religion and extremism don't mix, but isn't religion the reason for the riots occurring in the world?"

In his column in the weekly Ananda Vikatan, Haasan has allegedly stated that the presence of "Hindu terrorism" in the country can not be ruled out.
