Kamal Haasan Triggers Furore by 'Hindu Terror' Remark, BJP Demands Apology

Actor Kamal Haasan, who recently laid bare his political ambitions, has spoken of Hindu terror, stirring the hornet's nest once again.

"In the past the Hindu right used to engage only in intellectual debates with the other religious groups".

In a column penned for a popular Tamil weekly news magazine, Haasan said that the right wing could no longer deny the existence of Hindu terror and that Hindus were "losing faith in "Satyameva Jayate" and instead subscribing to "might is right".

Even the Shiv Sena, which now has a blow hot, blow cold relationship with the BJP, slammed Kamal Haasan, who recently announced that he was ready to join politics but has refused to divulge much about his plans so far, for his article. They too started indulging in violence. "The right wing can not challenge talk of Hindu terrorists because it has affected their camp as well". The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) has now responded to his controversial remark comparing him with terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba's (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed. His article created a huge uproar from the BJP, with the party spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao criticising the 62-year-old actor's ideology. However the actor signed off with a positive note saying that the day is not far when Tamil Nadu, like Kerala today, will become a model for social reform.

Duterte also said he met with industry leaders who signed business agreements valued at $6 billion, or three times the amount sealed business deals in his first visit to Japan previous year .

"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".

Haasan is expected to take a political plunge anytime and some reports suggest that he may soon launch his own political party. "The people of Tamil Nadu will laugh him off".

"Is @ikamalhaasan trying to revive denounced narrative of Hindu terror under influence of a terrorist outfit in TN nd ally of PFI, Al Umma?" A party leader went on to call him "mentally unstable". "The NIA should visit him and ask him if he has any proof,"' Swamy told a leading news channel.
