Court admits complaint against Kamal Haasan

VARANASI/CHENNAI: A Court in Varanasi on Saturday admitted a plaint filed by a local lawyer against actor Kamal Haasan for his remark on “Hindu terror“.

The court of additional CJM-VI ordered to admit the case as a plaint, and asked the complainant, Kamlesh Chandra Tripathi, to get his statement recorded on November 22. Kamal, in his column in a Tamil magazine that hit the stands on Thursday, had fired a salvo at Hindutva forces, saying right-wing Hindus have moved from engaging in debates to employing terrorism to propagate their communal agenda. He had also said that the right-wingers could no longer say “show me a Hindu terrorist if you can; terrorism has spread into their fold too”.

Tripathi had turned up before the court on Friday with his plaint and appealed initiating action against Haasan under Sections 500 (punishment for defamation), 511 (punishable offence), 298 (deliberate intent to wound religious belief), 295-A (insulting religious belief) and 505-C (incite to commit offence against other class/community) of IPC.

Meanwhile in Chennai, at a gathering of All Farmers Associations of Tamil Nadu, Kamal cautioned that it was high time people woke up from their 50-year slumber, and that it was people’s responsibility to question politicians.

In an oblique reference to certain Hindu outfit’s call to shoot and kill him for his remarks on Hindu terrorism, the actor said: “When you raise an alarm and chase politicians who burgled our natural resources, they turn around and scoff at you. If you question them, they throw you into jail. As jails are running out of space, they have devised a modern solution, which is to shoot you dead.”
