Actor Prakash Raj on Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and Union Minister Anantkumar Hegde saying they were not Hindus.

“They say that I am anti-Modi, anti-Amit Shah, anti-Hegde. According to me, they’re not Hindus,'' Raj said at the India Today Conclave South in Hyderabad.

“When Gauri Lankesh was killed, some people celebrated her murder. These were people who were being followed by PM Modi. A person who supports killing cannot be a Hindu,” he added.

Taking on Anantkumar Hegde, Raj said anyone who wants to wipe out a religion from the face of this earth, cannot be a Hindu.

Raj also hit out at the BJP on the Padmaavat row, “They talk about Rajput pride. I understand if Rajputs of Rajasthan are saying so. But, what it has to do with those in Gujarat and Haryana?”

Actor Vishal, filmmaker SK Sasidharan, and Dalit activist Kancha Ilaiah were also part of the panel discussion.
