Noted writer lyricist Javed Akhtar is currently in the news for his many statements. In the past, he had compared the Swayamsevak Sangh, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, the Bajrang Dal to the Taliban, and for doing so, he came into controversy. Now amidst all this, Javed Akhtar has described Hindus as the world's most 'civilized' 'tolerant' community. Javed Akhtar recently wrote an article in Saamna newspaper and made his point clear. In fact, Javed Akhtar expressed surprise that he has been told that "he speaks only on Hindu fundamentalism and remains silent on Islamic bigotry.''
At the same time, Javed Akhtar also said, "India, can never be Afghanistan.'' Let me tell you all that in Shiv Sena mouthpiece 'Saamna,' Javed Akhtar wrote, "In an interview, I said that Hindus are the most civilized tolerant community in the world. I had also emphasized that India can never become like Afghanistan because Indians are not extremists by nature, they are soft-minded. Being normal is in their DNA.'' Javed Akhtar also wrote, "In the last two decades, I have been given police protection because of the threat to my life by Muslim fundamentalists. The first time I opposed triple talaq. In a TV debate in 2010, I had a heated debate on the custom of the curtain. The Maulana was also angry with me for this. In Lucknow, my effigies were burnt and threatening emails started pouring in. I was again provided with police protection. So the allegation that I do not speak against Muslim fundamentalism is baseless.''
Let us also tell you that Javed Akhtar always gets into controversy because of his tweet statements and that is why he has to face trolling.
