The petition comes against the backdrop of the row triggered by actor-politician Kamal Haasan’s remark that free India’s first extremist was a Hindu, a reference to Mahatma Gandhi assassin Godse.

At an election rally in Aravakurichi last week, Haasan had said “Free India’s first terrorist was a Hindu, his name is Nathuram Godse. There it (terrorism, apparently) starts.”The outfit sought permission for conducting the meeting at Mylapore on May 26.
