A Varanasi local court will take up a complaint against actor Kamal Haasan for allegedly hurting religious sentiments of Hindus after he recently made the remark that “right-wing groups can’t deny the existence of Hindu terrorism”.
Lawyer Kamlesh Chandra Tripathi, who filed the plea, informed that the decision to hear the complaint was taken by the court of the additional chief judicial magistrate (sixth). The court will hear the complaint on November 4, he said.
The complainant has accused Haasan of hurting religious sentiments of the Hindus by making the "inflamatory and derogatory remark of Hindu terrorism."
It has sought a directive asking the actor to refrain from making such a remark given the public following he has.
This remark has “deeply hurt” the sentiments of scores of people following Hindu religion, it added. (With PTI Inputs)
