Following Haasan's comments, RSS thinker Rakesh Sinha slammed the actor for his statements and tweeted, "Kamal Haasan must apologise for hurting Hindu civilisation, defaming it, trying to create provocation for his petty political end".
He wrote that right-wing Hindus have realised that their attempts of using debates are not working and now they have resorted to violence.
Actor Kamal Haasan has now sparked another controversy by stating in a popular Tamil weekly column that right-wing in India can not deny there are Hindu terrorists. They have started indulging in violence. A few months back Haasan had said that he will be joining politics with possibly a new party which will be headed by him. Earlier, Hindu extremists held dialogue, now they indulge in violence.
"The right wing can not challenge talk of Hindu terrorists because terror has spread into their camp as well.Hindus are losing faith in "satyameva jayate" and instead subscribing to "might is right", he said. There is no Hindu terrorist organisation.
"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 took no names in his column in the latest issue of Tamil weekly "Ananda Vikatan" when he alleged that right-wing outfits had "changed course". Incidentally, today's comments on "Hindu terror" also came in reply to a question posed to him by the Communist veteran in the same magazine on what he thinks about the efforts by Hindutva forces to denigrate the Dravidian culture.
"The day is not far when Tamil Nadu will again be a model for social reformation", he said, adding, "Kerala is such a model and my greetings (to you) for that". "They have stepped into the fray to protect Tamil Nadu". A party leader went on to call him "mentally unstable". "The NIA must visit him to seek evidence (for Hindu terorrism)", he said.
