A Varanasi court will hear the case against actor Kamal Haasan today for allegedly hurting religious sentiments with his recent remark that “right wing groups can’t deny existence of Hindu terrorism”. 

A complaint was filed against the actor in the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate on Friday.

The application was moved by a lawyer Kamlesh Chandra Tripathi. 

In his complaint, Tripathi accused the actor of hurting religious sentiments of Hindus by making inflammatory and derogatory remark of Hindu terrorism.  

He sought lodging of a case under IPC sections 500, 522, 298, 295(A) and 505(C). 

He said the actor should refrain from such remarks as he has a huge public following.

“There is Hindu extremism in Tamil Nadu, and you cannot say there is no Hindu terror,” Kamal Haasan had written in a Tamil magazine.
