Earlier this month, Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan revived the controversy over the phrase "saffron terror," saying in his weekly column that the right wing no longer can deny the presence of extremist elements among its ranks.

In his column in the weekly Ananda Vikatan, Haasan said that where Hindu extremists earlier believed in holding a dialogue to push their point, they now indulged in violence.

Responding to this, a senior leader of a Hindu outfit - Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha - slammed veteran Tamil actor and said people like him should be "shot dead". Haasan hit back by saying those who cannot stand criticism now want to kill him.

And now, a video of a young boy stabbing and tearing a poster of Kamal Haasan tied to a pole was shared on Twitter. A voice in the background encouraging the kid to stab the poster stating that Kamal Haasan is anti-Hindu can also be heard.

Distressed over the video, Haasan tweeted, "My children, oh my! It is better for me to die by the stabbing of a child. The Tamil race will not put up with my grown-up brother committing a crime by whilst speaking Tamil. Nature will take joy in killing me. You have the right to become joyous even before that. Why don't you try killing me? I shall triumph no matter what."
