Kamal Haasan Claims Hindu Terrorists Are Real, Infuriates Twitterati Over His Statement

  • Kamal Haasan hosted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his Chennai home in September

Earlier, when reports of Kamal Hassan joining politics had surfaced widely, the actor had said that his colour is definitely not saffron, hinting at his anti-BJP stand.

"The right wing can not challenge talk of Hindu terrorists because terror has spread into their camp as well", said Haasan.

He further said, "In the past, Hindu right-wing groups would not indulge in violence". He went on to stir the pot some more in the lead-up to his much vaunted political plunge by saying that right-wing groups are resorting to using their "muscle power" to silence their opponents, dumping their old method of engaging them in dialogue.

Arsene Wenger tells Gareth Southgate to hand Jack Wilshere England recall
England play Germany and Brazil in friendly matches in the next two weeks. Even in training when they play against each other it's very tight.

But as their "cunningness" started to fail, they began to resort to violence, he said.

In his regular column, Haasan further wrote, "The right wing can not challenge talk of Hindu terrorists because terror has spread into their camp as well". "Such terror activities are not going to help them in way", he added.

The star's Hindutva bashing comes towards the end of his weekly column as an answer to a question posed to him by Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan as to whether the intrusion of Hindutva forces is undermining the social reformist agenda in the state's polity.

Marisa Harris, 23, was studying to be a counselor to help troubled children, her family said. Harris was driving a Ford Escape when the boy jumped from an overpass above the freeway.

Haasan's provocative statements came at a time when his fans and the leaders in Tamil Nadu are waiting for a "grand announcement" the actor is expected to make on November 7, when he turns 63.

"There has been a tendency in this country we have seen in the past decade how Sonia Gandhi-Rahul Gandhi led Congress party drew a strategy of maligning the Indian society and Hindu community only to appease the Muslim vote bank". He met Kerala Chief Minister Vijayan, and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Taking a strong exception to the actor's remark, Hindu Makkal Katchi president Arjun Sampath said, "Kamal Haasan must take back his words. It was done by the former home minister P Chidambaram and Congress leader Sushil Kumar Shindey saying it on the floor of Parliament that there is Hindu terror in this country", BJP's national spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said.
