NEW DELHI: Actor Kamal Haasan has landed in trouble over his "Hindu terror" remark as a case was registered against Tamil superstar under sections 500, 511, 298, 295(a) and 505(c) of the Indian Penal Code.
The actor has further accused the Hindu right-wing groups of indulging into violence for silencing their opponents. He pointed out that the right wing groups earlier believed in tackling their opponents with dialogues rather than violence but of late they are resorting to violence.
"Earlier such Hindu right-wingers, without indulging in violence against those belonging to other religions, made the latter indulge in violence through their arguments and counter arguments," he said.
However, since "this old conspiracy" had begun to fail, the groups were indulging in violence, he wrote.
The 62-year-old actor , has been hitting the bottom-line with his controversial remarks lately. Talks about him preparing for his political launch are out in the open now. If sources are to be believed, Kamal who is currently trending on Twitter for his controversial statement, is soon going to launch his own political party soon and is expected to make an announcement regarding the same on his coming birthday on November 7.
Time and again Kamal has been vocal about his aversion to the ruling BJP party. Previously, in September, in his talks with the Chief Minister of Kerala ,he had clearly stated that Saffron is not his colour. In the past he has accused the ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu of corruption.
In a related development, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had met the actor at his residence and had lunch with him. However Kamal ruled out affiliation with Aam Admi Party for his political launch. He had earlier been reported saying that he will be recruiting fresh faces for his party.
Kamal Haasan had earlier expressed his displeasure at the mandatory playing of the national anthem in movie halls.He had tweeted-‘’ Singapore plays it's national anthem every midnight. Likewise do so on DD. Do not force or test my patriotism at various random places.
