The Hindu Makkal Katchi has demanded actor Kamal Haasan to tender an apology for remarking that Hindu extremism is alive and kicking. Elaborating, Mr. Haasan said: "Hindus can not challenge others to show extremists among them since extremism has spread to that extent even among the Hindus". There is no Hindu terrorist organisation.
Speaking about terrorism, Haasan said: "The right wing can not challenge talk of Hindu terrorists because terror has spread into their camp as well". "They too started indulging in violence", he wrote. Kamal Haasan said. When one generation is growing up without being aware of the caste system the conservatives are trying to intrude into them to preach casteism, as reflected by the blatant segregation of cine artistes on social media, the actor who recently threw in his lot with Vijay after the BJP targeted the latter's Mersal, said.
In the past, Hindu, right-wing groups would not indulge in violence. His article created a huge uproar from the BJP, with the party spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao criticising the 62-year-old actor's ideology.More news: Catalonia crisis: Sacked ministers held by Madrid court
The past few months have seen the actor meet with political leaders from various parties. It was done by the former home minister P. Chidambaram and Congress leader Sushil Kumar Shinde said it on the floor of Parliament that there is Hindu terror in this country. "The NIA should visit him and ask him if he has any proof", Swamy told Times Now. He had added that those who want to do something for Tamil Nadu as a "duty" and not as a "sacrifice" are welcome to join him. "This kind of remark will badly hurt him in Tamil Nadu", Swamy said. "If he has such an inclination, he should report it to the authorities".
"Is @ikamalhaasan trying to revive denounced narrative of Hindu terror under influence of a terrorist outfit in TN nd ally of PFI, Al Umma?"
"With his myopic and brazen comments on the so called Hindu terror, Kamal Haasan has signalled that he has arrived on political scene as a fringe element", Mr Rao said.
