Chennai: Actor Kamal Haasan, who has been expressing his intentions to take a political plunge, has said people have lost faith in Satyameva Jayate.

Writing in his weekly column 'Ennul Mayyam Koonda Puyual' in vernacular weekly Ananda Vikatan, Kamal has taken on the alleged Hindu terror and claimed that it is not a new phenomenon.

"You can't say there is no Hindu terror. Earlier, Hindu extremists held dialogue, now they indulge in violence".

The Vishwaroopam actor further wrote that people have lost faith in Satyameva Jayate.

Kamal recently visited Ennore creek and interacted with locals about corporate encroachments of the water body. He even tweeted his apprehensions that efforts are being made to encroach 1000 acres of land near Kosasthalaiyar and Ennore creek in north Chennai.

In a series of tweets, the actor, wrote, "Instead of blaming the government after a debacle, here is an opportunity to act in advance. Let's not ignore Ennonre creek, which may become a threat to north Chennai".

On his proposed political entry, the actor recently remarked, "I'm definitely coming there (pointing to audiences). Don't think I'm exploiting this stage. I'm speaking now from the bottom of my heart. These are my real words. If you think I should continue acting in movies, say it. If you think it's time for me to be a part of the change and serve society, say it loudly. Now, my wish is to die in the service of my nation, and I'm totally prepared for it".

The actor has been making political statements and taking a dig at the ruling party in the State regularly. Recently, Delhi Chief Minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal called on him. Kamal Haasan also met Kerala Chief Minister Pnarayi Vijayan.
