A court in Varanasi will today hear a complaint against actor Kamal Haasan for allegedly hurting religious sentiments of Hindus with his recent remark that "terrorism has infected right-wing groups".

The decision to hear the complaint was taken by the court of the additional chief judicial magistrate (sixth) today, lawyer Kamlesh Chandra Tripathi, who moved the plea, said.

The court will hear the complaint on 4 November, he said.

The complaint has accused Mr Haasan of hurting religious sentiments of the Hindus by making the "inflamatory and derogatory remark of Hindu terrorism".

It has sought a directive asking the actor to refrain from making such a remark given the public following he has.
