Take action against Kamal for Hindu terror remark, BJP tells EC

Chennai: “The Election Commission should take tough action against Makkal Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan for his remarks on ‘Hindu Terror’ at a campaign event,” said State unit president of BJP, Tamilisai Soundararajan.

In a statement here, Tamilisai said, “Kamal Haasan had stated at a campaign in a Muslim-populated area yesterday that the first terror act after Independence in the country was unleashed by a Hindu, while referring to Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination. To seek votes in the name of religion is condemnable.”

She wondered why he has not spoken a word about ‘terror’ unleashed recently in the neighbouring country by a few Islamic forces.
