Slipper attack on Kamal at election rally

Chennai, May 16 (IANS) Enraged by actor-politician Kamal Haasan’s ‘Hindu terrorist’ remark, a person threw his slipper at him at Thiruparankundram in Tamil Nadu.

Haasan was addressing an election rally in support of his Makkal Needhi Maiam candidate when the attack took place on Wednesday night.

Police said the person who threw the slipper has been taken into custody. The slipper fell before the dais and not near Haasan.

At the meeting, a group of people shouted slogans. The police took 11 persons into custody.

On Sunday, at the Aravakuruchi Assembly constituency, Haasan, while campaigning for his party candidate, said about the killer of Mahatma Gandhi: “The first extremist of independent India was a Hindu — Nathuram Godse. It all started from there.”

Tamil Nadu Minister K.T. Rajenthra Bhalaji said the actor-politician’s tongue should be cut.
