Hindu terror remark: varansi lawyer files defamation case aginst Kamal Hassan

The charges slapped on Kamal Hassan pertain to defamation intent to hurt religious feelings and attempt to cause offence
Terming the threat to Haasan "a threat to secularism", the chief minister said efforts to add more names to the list of Dhabolkar, Pansare, Kalburgi and Gauri Lankesh need to be dealt with strongly.
Bollywood veteran actor Kamal Haasan received backlash for alleging that right-wing groups in India had moved from engaging in debates to employing "terrorism to propagate their communal agenda". But this extremism is not a mark of success or growth, he had written.
"There is no other way to handle people like KamalHaasan but to either hang them or shoot them dead", he said.
"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".
Prakash Raj's comment came a day after Kamal Haasan hit out at right-wing groups in the Tamil weekly Ananda Vikatan.
In his complaint, Tripathi accused the actor of hurting religious sentiments of Hindus by making inflammatory and derogatory remark of Hindu terrorism.
Reports say Kamal Haasan will announce the launch of his new political party on his birthday on November 7.
Chennai/Lucknow: A case was filed against actor Kamal Haasan under sections 500, 511, 298, 295 (a) and 505 (c) of the Indian Penal Code over his "Hindu terror" statement in a column in a Tamil magazine.
Meanwhile Arvind Swamy wrote, 'Terrorist defi nes a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims'.
