Right-wing can't deny existence of Hindu terror: Kamal Haasan

Chennai: Actor Kamal Haasan, who has off late taken a keen interest in the political world, claimed that there exists Hindu terror and that the right-wing cannot deny the same.

Writing for his weekly series in a Tamil magazine, the actor said, "You can't say there is no Hindu terror. Earlier, Hindu extremists held dialogue, now they indulge in violence."

He further added that people today have lost faith in Satyameva Jayate. "Truth alone triumphs has now become strength alone triumphs. This has made people inhuman."

His comments came in the wake of Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan asking the actor about what he felt on the recent communalisation which aims to destroy the Tamil Dravidian tradition of peaceful co-existence.

The actor's recent statements and moves seem like an indication about his decision to stay away from BJP.

Kamal was recently see supporting the Tamil movie 'Mersal', which faced the ire of BJP for mocking GST in a scene from the film.

He also hinted at some important news that will be revealed on his birthday, November 7. He said that it’s time for an emergency operation and can’t wait anymore for good things to happen on its own. “I have an unsettling anger on thieves who converted human services like education, medicine, and politics into business. I can see a young army waiting for the right time and feel that it’s my duty and necessity to unit them”, said Kamal

In a surprising U-turn, he also earlier apologised to the people for supporting the Centre's demonetisation policy. The actor, whose political ambitions are well-known, issued an apology in a column for Tamil magazine Ananda Vikatan.

Titled "A big apology", Haasan wrote, "I owe it to the people to apologise for supporting the plan in a hurry."

Noting that he was not the kind of person who was afraid of apologising, the actor went on to state that he had fully supported the Centre's policy as he thought it was going to get rid of black money and had also thought people should bear the little inconveniences that arise out of demonetisation.

Kamal was among a host of celebrities across India who had tweeted in support of demonetisation last November.
