Protesters seek apology from Javed Akhtar for remarks on RSS
A number of BJP’s youth wing activists gathered in front of Indian lyricist and film writer Javed Akhtar’s house to protest against his remarks on RSS, VHP, and Bajrang Dal, reported Indian media on Saturday.
While speaking to a news portal, Javed Akhtar had said that the Taliban are barbaric, their actions are reprehensible, but those supporting the RSS, VHP, and Bajrang Dal are all the same. This statement by Javed Akhtar has not gone down well with BJP’s youth wing and several of them landed outside his Juhu home to protest.
The protesters demanded Javed Akhtar apologize for his remarks. They said, “RRS helps everyone in time of need and he has compared them to the Taliban. He must apologize. It is very condemnable that despite being a very sensible person, Javed Akhtar has given such a statement.”
