Two days after actor and Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) president Kamal Haasan termed Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse a ‘Hindu terrorist’, police in Aravakurichi registered a case against him on Tuesday evening. The MNM, in a late night statement, said the speech was taken out of context. Based on a complaint from K V Ramakrishnan, Karur district secretary of Hindu Munnani, police registered a case against Kamal under IPC sections 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion) and 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings).

Citing Kamal’s remarks, a BJP leader also moved a PIL in the Delhi high court on Tuesday seeking a direction to the Election Commission of India to restrict misuse of religion for political gain The petition by BJP leader Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, who is also a lawyer, also sought debarring of candidates and deregistration of parties that misused religion for electoral gain. The court allowed the plea to be listed for hearing on Wednesday before a bench. The MNM said Kamal’s speech had been taken out of context at the behest of certain political groups with a malafide intent to promote enmity among people “for the ulterior benefits of such groups”.
