Dinesh said that the “we should confront it rather than running away”. He even dubbed cow vigilantes as terrorist, saying ‘all the people who take law in their hands and terrorise people are terrorist’.
“Yes, there is (Hindu terror). Who killed Mahatma Gandhi he was a Hindu terrorist. People who are lynching and beating up Dalits, all these gau rakshakas are Hindu terrorists. These are the few who terrorise people. All these people, who take law in their hands, decide to take action on their own based upon some ideology,” he said.
"BJP supports any right wing Hindu organisation and they will oppose any left wing or Hindu organisation. They support Gau Rakshaks. Kamal Hassan said it differently. But the truth is it (Hindu terror) exist," he added.
Meanwhile, a case was filed against Kamal Haasan in a court in Varanasi today for his comments on "Hindu terror". The case has been filed under several sections of the IPC that pertain to defamation, attempt to cause offence, intent to hurt religious feelings and to incite communal disharmony.
In an article in a Tamil magazine that came into public domain on Thursday, the film actor had observed that "Hindu right-wing groups have unprecedentedly started indulging in acts of violence".
