  • Hindu Terror Does Exist They Indulge Only In Violence These Days Kamal Haasan

Kamal's remark has not gone down well with some political parties and had demanded an apology.

Sounding philosophical at one point, Haasan said "change is unchangeable".

"Many Tollywood actors wannabe MGRs are desperate for the media attention". There is no Hindu terrorist organisation.

At a time when Islamist extremism and terror groups continue to wreak havoc globally, with a most recent attack in NY being claimed in the name of the Islamic State group, Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan has alleged that terror has spread into the "camp" of Hindus as well, and that now Hindu right-wing groups also resort to violence.

"He should apologise and take his word back".

On Thursday, Kamal Haasan had said that terrorism has infected right-wing groups, provoking a likely confrontation with the BJP.

"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. They would hold a dialogue with opponents. "But now they resort to violence", Mr. Haasan said.

Veteran actor Kamal Haasan yet again in news for his comment on "saffron terror" phrase, that the "right wing can not challenge the fact that there is no Hindu terror".

His comments came in response to Kerala CM Pinari Vijayan who asked the superstar about his opinion on the recent communalism seeking to destroy Tamil Dravidian tradition of peaceful co-existence. In his leftist view, he says Hindu terrorism exists. BJP senior leader Dr. Subramanian Swamy responded to the actor's claim of Hindu terror and called him a morally corrupt person. "Today, when Kamal Hassan makes similar comments, he is actually joining the ranks of P. Chidambaram, Hafiz Saeed and is possible angling to become an extension of the Congress Party", BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao told ANI.

The film star is planning to launch his own political party. "I am going to announce a way of seamless communication with them on November 7".
