Chennai: Raking up yet another controversy, Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan has said right wing groups can not deny the existence of "Hindu terror" in their ranks.

Haasan has been active of late with comments on the political situation, both at the national and state level, often being critical of the ruling parties.

The actor's comments came as a reply to Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan who asked Haasan about what he implied to say by recent communalism that is a threat to the peaceful co-existence of Tamil Drividan tradition.

At a time when Islamist extremism and terror groups continue to wreak havoc globally, with a most recent attack in NY being claimed in the name of the Islamic State group, Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan has alleged that terror has spread into the "camp" of Hindus as well, and that now Hindu right-wing groups also resort to violence.

He wrote that right-wing Hindus have realised that their attempts of using debates are not working and now they have resorted to violence. "But now they resort to violence", Mr. Haasan said. "This kind of remark will badly hurt him in Tamil Nadu", Swamy said.

BJP leadrer Subramanian Swamy responded to Haasan's claim of "Hindu terror" and called him a "morally corrupt person".

"Is @ikamalhaasan trying to revive denounced narrative of Hindu terror under influence of a terrorist outfit in TN nd ally of PFI, Al Umma?" "If he has such an inclination, he should report it to the authorities". There is no Hindu terrorist organisation.
