Every religion has its own terrorist: Kamal Haasan
Chennai: Actor-politician Kamal Haasan, who is at the centre of a raging row over his Hindu extremist remarks, on Friday said "every religion has its own terrorists" and no one can claim to be sanctimonious.
The Makkal Needhi Maiam chief also said that he was not afraid of being arrested but warned any such action would escalate tensions.
Tamil Nadu Chief Electoral Officer Satyabrata Sahoo said a report has been sought from the District Election Officer (DEO) on Haasan's Hindu extremist remarks made at Aravakurichi in Karur.
Haasan said the remarks made during the Aravakurichi Assembly segment by-poll campaign meet on Sunday were not made for the first time, even as he
asserted that "every religion has its own terrorist" and "this shows that all religions have their extremists."
