If taking the law into hands and lynching people on slightest doubt of cow slaughter is not terrorising…If trolling with abuse, threat…to silence even a slightest voice of dissent is not terrorising…Then what is terrorising…
Just asking.” Prakash raj’s comment came after kamal hassan’s wrote in Tamil magazine that earlier rightwing Hindus used to argue but without indulging in violence but now as their “cunningness” started to fail, they began to resort to violence. And “Extremism has spread into their camp as well,” said Kamal, who is said to be preparing for a political plunge. “This extremism is not a victory or progress to those who call themselves Hindus.”
Kamal Hassan has been booked under IPC sections 500, 511, 298, 295(a) & 505(c) pertaining to defamation, attempt to cause offence, intent to hurt religious feelings and to incite community.

Earlier the national spokesperson of the party, GVL Narasimha Rao, compared the actor to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed. “Today, when Kamal Haasan 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,” he said on Thursday.
