Veteran Tamil actor Kamal Haasan on Thursday said Hindu right wing groups can not anymore claim that there are no "Hindu terrorists", as they resort to violence instead of engaging in meaningful dialogue.
Haasan further writes, "The right-wing groups can not challenge talk of Hindu terrorism because terror has spread in their camps as well".
He further writes that people have lost faith in Satyameva Jayate.
The comment has invited the ire of BJP with the party's spokesperson Narayan Tripathi saying, "He should apologise and take his word back. In reality, there is peace because Hindus are in majority", said BJP spokesperson Narayan Tripathi, as per a report in CNN News-18. Last week, he told fans to be ready for "a big announcement" on November 7, his birthday.
"Such claims will not work in politics. The Hindus can not challenge others to show extremists among them since extremism has spread to that extent even among the Hindus".

"Most of the leftists are my heroes". He added that he wants to "be in the middle of things, not leaning to any side".
Haasan had been vocal against the Tamil Nadu government on the issue of corruption, thus incurring the wrath of several state ministers, who have accused the actor of speaking in general terms and dared him to provide evidence of his charges.
