"There is Hindu extremism in Tamil Nadu, and you can not say there is no Hindu terror", Kamal Haasan had written in a Tamil magazine.

"To name a child, we should first have one", said the award-winning actor who has been very active over the last few months, levelling corruption charges against Tamil Nadu's ruling government or speaking out in support of free speech. If trolling with abuse, threat... to silence even a slightest voice of dissent is not terrorizing...

The case was filed against the on Friday under IPC section 500, 511, 298, 295 (a) and 505 (c).

Haasan's article on a Tamil magazine had claimed that "extremism has spread into the Hindu right-wing camp as well". "Any person who uses abusive language for people belonging to Hindu faith does not have the right to live on this holy land and they should get death in return of their remarks", said its national vice president, Pandit Ashok Sharma. However, since "this old conspiracy" had begun to fail, the groups are indulging in violence, he wrote.

The veteran Tamil actor's remark triggered heated outrage among the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) - with enraged leaders strongly criticizing Haasan's remarks.

RRS ideologue Rakesh Sinha demanded an apology from Kamal Haasan for insulting Hindu culture and hurting their sentiments. Hitting out at those claiming that Hindus can not be found guilty in terror-related cases, he said, "right wing can not challenge talk of Hindu terrorists because terror has spread into their camp as well".
