VARANASI: The statement of a local lawyer Kamlesh Chandra Tripathi , whose complaint against actor Kamal Haasan for his remark on alleged Hindu terror was accepted on November 4, was recorded at the court of additional chief judicial magistrate-VI here on Wednesday. The court fixed next date for hearing on December 4. In his column in a Tamil magazine the actor said the right-wingers could no longer say "show me a Hindu terrorist if you can; terrorism has spread into their fold too". Accepting his plea on November 4, the court ordered to file the case as a complaint and asked Tripathi to get his statement recorded on November 22.Tripathi alleged that by ascribing terrorism to Hinduism, the actor had hurt his sentiments, and appealed to the court to summon Haasan and punish him. "I got my statement recorded before the court against Haasan, who ascribed terrorism to Hinduism," said Tripathi, who had moved to the court on November 3 with his plea for initiating action against Haasan under sections 500 (defamation), 511 (punishable offence), 298 (deliberate intent to wound religious feelings), 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage reli-gious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or reli-gious beliefs) and 505(1) (publishing report with intent to incite any class or community of persons to commit any offence against any other class or community) of IPC.
