Mumbai; Mumbai Bollywood renowned Lyricist and former Rajya Sabha Member Javed Akhtar lands in trouble

Mumbai: Bollywood’s renowned Lyricist and former Rajya Sabha Member, has landed himself in trouble.

A local advocate Amit Kumar has filed a complaint against Javed before a Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Thakur Aman Kumar for his remarks on the FIRs registered against expelled AAP Councillor Tahir Hussain in the midst of Delhi riots.
Based on a newspaper report, the complainant has alleged that Akhtar’s remarks were seditious and promoted religious hatred.

The media report was based on Akhtar’s tweet of February 27 that “So many killed, so many injured, so many houses burned, so many shops looted so many people turned destitute but police has sealed only one house and looking for his owner. Incidentally, his name is Tahir. Hats off to the consistency of the Delhi police.”

The violence in Northeast Delhi claimed at least 42 lives and left over 200 injured. The former Rajya Sabha member was heavily trolled for the tweet.

In yet another tweet, Akhtar has asserted that he is a non-believer and a rationalist, clarifying that he was not asking “why Tahir but why ONLY Tahir and not even an FIR against those who have openly threatened violence in the presence of the police”.

The matter is likely to come up for hearing on March 25.
