Actor Kamal Haasan is no stranger to controversy. Few months back he courted a controversy and hurt the sentiments of the majority community by making some critical comments on the epic Mahabharata. Kamal referred to Mahabharata and said that ‘a woman is gambled away in the epic’ and pointed that ‘India honours such a book’.

Now he’s at it again. He claimed that ‘Hindu terror’ was not a new phenomenon. In his column in a Tamil magazine, he wrote: “You can’t say there is no Hindu terror. Earlier, Hindu extremists held dialogue, now they indulge in violence.

The 62-year-old actor said the right-wingers could no longer say “show me a Hindu terrorist if you can.” He believed terrorism has spread into their fold too.

He wrote that right-wing Hindus have realised that their attempts of using debates are not working and now they have resorted to violence.

He also said that people have lost faith in Satyameva Jayate. “Truth alone triumphs has now become strength alone triumphs. This has made people inhuman,” he said.

He also said that the attempt by fascists to shift the world towards the right will not succeed, and it is a temporary phenomenon.

Infuriated over his remarks, the members of the Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK) lodged a police complaint against him. They have called Kamal as anti-Hindu and even questioned whether he has any guts to speak against Bible or Quran.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao compared actor Kamal Haasan to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed.

Earlier, he had said that he will form his own political party as none of the existing ones can provide a platform for his “reformatory” ideology.

Twitterati are infuriated over his comments too:
