A day after a senior Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha leader said that Tamil actor Kamal Haasan should be “shot dead” for his “Hindu terror” remarks, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan condemned the statement saying “such religious fanatics must be arrested immediately”. Referring to the deaths of Mahatma Gandhi, Pansare, Dhabolkar, Kalburgi and Gauri Lankesh in the past, Vijayan said that any efforts to add more names to the list must be opposed and dealt with strongly.

Taking to Facebook and Twitter, the Chief Minister said, “Strongly condemn such criminal attempts against Kamal Haasan’s freedom of speech by threatening to murder him by Hindu Mahasabha leader(s). Such religious fanatics & radical minds issuing murder/assassination threats should be immediately arrested by the concerned authorities and stringent legal action is needed against these persons who threatened to kill Kamal Haasan. The entire nation knows WHAT happened to Mahatma Gandhi, Pansare, Dhabolkar, Kalburgi, Gauri Langesh and WHY ? Any move to further add names to that series by such draconian forces has to be opposed and terminated immediately. I strongly condemn anyone following any religion or caste or gender resorting to terrorism to accomplish their communal agenda to spread unrest in society and destabilise the country.”
