Chennai: Indian National League Party, a Muslim outfit, petitioned the city police, on Monday, to act against veteran actor Kamal Haasan accusing him of inciting violence against AIADMK legislators.
The actor in his tweet on February 18 had extolled the twitterattis as follows: “People of Tamizhnadu, Welcome your respective MLAs with the respect they deserve back home.”
The outfit stated Kamal’s remark would mislead the public and would lead to violence. It is illegal to incite violence by extolling people since the government of his choice was not formed by the democratically elected MLAs.

The actor had two other tweets on the same day. Both tweets expressed his anguish over Edappadi K. Palanisami winning the trust vote in the Assembly that day.
“There you go. Seems like we have another CM. Jai de-mockcrazy,” one of the tweets read. The other tweet appealed the public to direct their grievances (apparently over Palanisami’s victory) to Rajbhavan@gmail.com....
