‘Hindu Terrorist’ Remark : High Court dismisses petition against Kamal Haasan

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader seeking directions to the Election Commission of India (ECI) to “restrict” misuse of religion for electoral gains. The court asked BJP leader Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay to approach the appropriate forum as the incident took place in Tamil Nadu.

In a plea, petitioner had stated that Makkal Needhi Maiyam party president comment was made intentionally in the presence of a Muslim-majority crowd for poll gain, which is a corrupt practice under Section 123(3) the Representation of the People Act (RPA) 1951. “Mr Kamal Haasan is deliberately promoting enmity between different groups on the grounds of religion and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony and brotherhood, which is an offence under Section 153A of the IPC,” the plea said.
