Chennai: A day after Tamil Meda Star Kamal Haasan said "Hindu Terrorists do exist", popular South Indian actor Prakash Raj questioned the violence in the name of religion, culture and morality.
"If instilling fear in the name of religion... culture... morality is not terrorizing... then what is it. Just asking", Prakash Raj wrote in a meddage posted on Twitter.
"If abusing and manhandling young couples on the streets of my country in the name of morality is not terrorising...
"If taking law into hands and lynching people on slightest doubt of cow slaughter is not terrorising...
"If trolling with abuse, threat... to silence even a slightest voice of dissent is not terrorising...
"Then what is terrorizing... Just asking", Prakash Raj said in a Twitter post titled "To whomsoever it may concern".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.
The comments by Kamal Haasan irked the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and the party asked Kamal haasan to tender apology.
