An FIR was registered against actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan in Tamil Nadu’s Aravakurichi for his remark that Nathuram Godse was free India’s first Hindu terrorist.
Earlier, alleging that terrorism has now spread to the Hindu camp, Kamal stated, “Earlier, the Hindu right would not personally indulge in violence, but instead, through their debates, they would incite their opponents to violence. But once this tactic failed, they started using muscle power instead of dialogue. They too have started using violence. They can no longer challenge saying ‘can you show me a Hindu Terrorist?”
The case was registered for “outraging religious feelings” and “promoting enmity between different groups”, police said. A PIL was also filed against him in a Delhi court seeking his prosecution for allegedly hurting Hindus’ feelings.
Earlier, this legendary actor, recently stated that ‘saffron was not his color’, has been booked under IPC sections 500, 511, 298, 295(a) & 505(c) for his comment on Hindu terror.
