The case filed against Actor Kamal Haasan under sections IPC sections 500, 511, 298, 295(a) & 505(c) for his remarks on ‘Hindu terror’.
Actor Kamal Haasan has said that right-wing groups resort to violence. In his weekly column, Haasan wrote: “In the past, Hindu, right-wing groups would not indulge in violence. They would hold a dialogue with opponents. But now they resort to violence.”
Kamal said, “right wing cannot challenge talk of Hindu terrorists because terror has spread into their camp as well.”
The remark drew a sharp reaction, especially from BJP. The national spokesperson of the party, GVL Narasimha Rao, compared the actor to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed. “Today, when Kamal Haasan makes similar comments, he is actually joining the ranks of P Chidambaram, Hafiz Saeed and is possible angling to become an extension of the Congress party,” he had said on Thursday.
