Muslim organisation supports VHP's protest against Kamal Haasan's 'Uttama Villain'

They alleged that he is trying to get publicity for movies by raking up controversies

Chennai: Vishwa Hindu Parishad received unexpected support in its fight against actor Kamal Hassan's upcoming Tamil film Uttama Villain, when a Muslim organization, on April 10, lodged a police complaint seeking action against the actor for his ‘attempts to insult religious sentiments’ of Hindus.

"Through his earlier movie Vishwaroopam, Kamal Haasan offended religious sentiments of Muslims and now he is trying to do the same to Hindus through his upcoming movie Uthama Villain," Indian National League Headquarters Secretary M Nazeer Ahammad told PTI after lodging a complaint with the Police Commissionerate.

He alleged that the actor was trying to get cheap publicity for his movies by raking up controversies, hurting the religious sentiments of people and demanded that police take appropriate action against him

"How can we allow disturbing public tranquility by those who use the bogey of freedom of expression (through cinema)," he asked.

On April 8, VHP had sought a ban on the film, with its city organiser Satyamurthy petitioning the Police Commissioner, claiming that the incarnations of Lord Vishnu has been criticised in the movie. The movie is scheduled for release on May 1.
