Lucknow: Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan has hit back at detractors, saying those who cannot stand criticism now want to kill him.

"If we question them, they call us anti-nationals and want us jailed. Now since there is no space in jails they want to shoot us and kill us," he said.

Haasan was reacting to a statement made by Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha Vice President Ashok Sharma, who on Friday slammed Haasan for his "Hindu extremist" remarks and said people like him should be "shot dead".

Earlier, a senior leader of a Hindu outfit - Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha - slammed veteran Tamil actor Kamal Haasan for his “Hindu terror” remarks and said people like him should be “shot dead”.

Referring to the statement made by Haasan on Thursday in a column in a weekly magazine, Mahasabha leader Pt. Ashok Sharma said these people accused the followers of Hinduism of Hindu terror only to “push their own biased communal agenda”.

“There is no other way to handle people like Kamal Haasan but to either hang them or shoot them dead,” he said.

Angered by the uncharitable remarks of Kamal Haasan, Sharma - the national Vice President of the Hindu group - said that people who used such language or were so biased against the Hindu religion and its faithful had no right to live.

Members of the Mahasabha have also announced to boycott all films of the 62-year-old actor and all actors from his family, including his daughter Shruti Haasan, who acts in Hindi as well as Tamil films. The outfit has also exhorted others to follow the suit and boycott films of such artistes.
