Chennai: Tamil mega-star Kamal Haasan in an article published on Thursday said that terrorism has infected right-wing groups.
"In the past, Hindu, right-wing groups would not indulge in violence. They would hold a dialogue with opponents. But now they resort to violence," Kamal Haasan wrote in his regular column in a popular Tamil weekly news magazine Ananda Vikatan.
“The right-wing can't challenge anyone asking the question — show me, one Hindu terrorist. Terror has spread into their camp as well. Such terror activities are not going to help them in any way", he wrote.
"Hindus are losing faith in 'satyameva jayate' and instead subscribing to 'might is right'," Kamal Haasan who had earlier announced joining politics said.
Talks of Hindu terrorists first came to light in April 2006 after a blast at the house of an alleged RSS worker in Nanded. The case was handled leniently because of the involvement of alleged high profile Hindutva leaders.
They were however fully exposed when former ATS Chief Hemant Karkare arrested a Sadhvi and an army man besides other Hindu priests and people associated with Right Wing groups in the 2008 Malegaon blast case.
During the course of investigation, Swami Aseemanand, ac accused in the case admitted the involvement of Right Wing Hindu groups in 2006 Malegaon blast, Mecca Masjid blast in Hyderabad, Ajmer blast and also in Samjhauta express blast.
Meanwhile, Hasan Kaamal's comments has infuriated the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and the party is seeking apology from the mega-star.
"Kamal Haasan should apologise and take his words back. In reality, there is peace because Hindus are in a majority," BJP spokesperson Narayanan Thirupathi said.
