Prakash Raj backs Kamal Haasan’s controversial remark, asks ‘what’s terrorising’


Prakash Raj, the talented actor, is known for not mincing words.

In news recently for making frank remarks on Taj Mahal and Tiu Sultan controversies, the National Award winning actor took to Twitter again showing his support for actor Kamal Haasan.

Haasan, who made headlines yesterday for his ‘Hindu terror’ remarks, was backed by the fellow actor in a lengthy post on Twitter.

Without naming Haasan or using the phrase ‘Hindu terror’, Prakash Raj talked about instances where people were being ‘mishandled’.

‘If instilling fear in the name of religion..culture..morality is not terrorizing..than what is it,’ Raj wrote on the micro-blogging site.

‘If abusing and manhandling young couple on streets of my country in the name of morality is not terrorizing..If taking law into hands and lynching people on slightest doubt of cow slaughter is not terrorizing..If trolling with abuse, threat ..to silence even a slightest voice of dissent is not terrorizing ..then what is terrorizing ..#justasking (sic),’ read the actor’s post.

Writing in his weekly column, Kamal Haasan had written, ‘You can’t say there is no Hindu terror. Earlier, Hindu extremists held dialogue, now they indulge in violence.’

He further wrote that people have lost faith in Satyameva Jayate. “Truth alone triumphs has now become strength alone triumphs. This has made people inhuman,” he said.

Haasan is set to make a mega announcemnet on his birthday on November 7. Though he has maintained that he won’t announce a political party, speculations are rife that Haasan would may finally take the plunge in world of politics.
