Hindu terrorist remark: Kamal Haasan in trouble

Tamil Nadu: In a shocking development, Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan who is known for his outspoken nature and he always speaks his heart out without any fear rocked Tamil Nadu state recently with his remarks.

The actor’s statements have brought him once again in news. He recently termed Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as the “Hindu terrorist”.

Now, according to the latest report, the Aravakurichi police in Karur district of Tamil Nadu registered a case against the superstar.

The complaint has been lodged by Hindu Munnani district secretary KV Ramakrishnan. The actor has been booked under section 153A which says promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion and 295A which states deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings.

The elections in the Aravakurichi assembly will be held on May 19 and the police superintendent warned that severe actions would be taken against anyone who will spark violence and hate among the citizens in the name of religion and language.

Mr Upadhyay, also a lawyer, alleged Mr Haasan “deliberately” made the statement in the presence of a Muslim majority crowd for electoral gains.

The petition contended this was “clearly a corrupt practice under Representation of the People Act (RPA) 1951.”

“As per Model Code of Conduct, no party or candidate can indulge in any activity which may aggravate existing differences or create mutual hatred or cause tension between different castes and communities, religious or linguistic. Similarly, there shall be no appeal to caste or communal feelings for securing votes.

“Haasan has violated the Model Code of Conduct in addition to Section 123(3) of the RPA 1951. Kamal Haasan is deliberately promoting enmity between different groups on the grounds of religion and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony and brotherhood, which is an offence under section 153A of IPC.

It is a deliberate and malicious act, intended to outrage religious feelings of millions of Hindus, which is an offence under section 295A IPC,” it claimed.

It also said that despite the alleged misuse of religion for electoral gain by Haasan, the EC has not done anything in this regard yet.
