Madras HC hears plea on FIR against Kamal Haasan

By IANS

Chennai, Nov 16: The Madras High Court on Thursday heard a petition seeking an FIR against actor Kamal Haasan for his "Hindu terrorism" comments.

Justice M.S. Ramesh directed the public prosecutor to get information from Tamil Nadu Police in connection with the actor's statement and posted the matter to next week for further hearing.

In his plea, advocate clerk G. Devarajan alleged that Kamal Haasan, through his comments published in a local vernacular magazine, was trying to brand "Hindus as terrorists".

Accusing the actor of attempting to divide the Tamil community on the basis of religion, the petitioner said no religion advocates terrorism.

Devarajan also mentioned that no action was taken in the matter despite lodging a complaint with the police.

He also called for action against the editor of the magazine where Kamal's article was published.
