saamana javed akhtar: Hindus most tolerant know what all javed akhtar has written in shiv sena newspaper
When Taliban terrorists came to power in Afghanistan on the basis of guns, some of their sympathizers came out in India. Debate started on TV, anger flared up on social media, started trending on Twitter. Then the famous poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar came forward and scolded those who supported the Taliban. However, in the face of anti-Taliban, he ‘mistake’ to compare the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh with this terrorist organization. What was then, within a few hours, he came under the target of lakhs and crores of Sangh volunteers of the country. Now he has tried damage control by writing articles in Saamana. He has described Hindus as the world’s largest tolerant community. Let us understand the whole matter one by one.
What was said by Javed Akhtar, on which there was a ruckus
Actually, Javed Akhtar had said that the aim of organizations like RSS, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal is the same as that of Taliban. He also said while saying that the Constitution of India is coming in the way of his goal, if he gets a chance, he will cross that boundary too.
Javed Akhtar, who criticized some Indian Muslims who were angry with the Taliban’s rule, said that the right wing is one in the world. On incidents of mob lynching of minorities in India, Akhtar said that it is a kind of full dress rehearsal of becoming a full-fledged Taliban. They are the same people, just the name is different.
Javed Akhtar said that those who support organizations like RSS, VHP, Bajrang Dal, they need to introspect. “Obviously the Taliban have a medieval mindset, they are barbarians but where are they different from those you are supporting?
BJP and Sangh supporters showered
As soon as Javed Akhtar’s interview came out, the anger of crores of supporters of BJP, RSS erupted. BJP workers started protest outside his house in Mumbai. Effigies were also burnt in many cities. Memes started being made against Javed Akhtar on Twitter and it became a topic of discussion across the country. Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy also said that it would be good for Javed Akhtar to apologize.
The topic of TV debate had also changed from ‘Taliban ke sympathizer’ to Javed Akhtar. Discussion of his old statements and controversies started. BJP MLA Ram Kadam said that unless Javed Akhtar apologizes with folded hands, he will not allow any of his films to be screened in India.
When Javed came under Shiv Sena’s target
BJP is in power at the center but perhaps Javed Akhtar felt that he would not have any tension in Maharashtra because there is a Shiv Sena government which broke friendship with BJP. But he forgot that there are many similarities in their ideology. Soon Shiv Sena gave advice to Javed Akhtar in its mouthpiece Saamana. “It is not fair to compare the RSS and the Taliban… Do not continuously suppress the majority of Hindus,” Saamana said.
In Saamana, it was written about the Taliban and the Sangh, ‘Taliban rule in Afghanistan is the biggest threat to mankind. The mindset of India is not like that. We are tolerant in every way… Javed Akhtar is known for his outspoken statements. They have sung Vande Mataram regardless of the fundamentalists, yet the comparison of the Sangh with the Taliban is not acceptable. Talking about Hindutva thought, Ramayana-Mahabharata, Shiv Sena fiercely told Javed Akhtar and proved his statement wrong by keeping the reality of Taliban in front.
BJP surrounds Shiv Sena
When this article came in the face, BJP started besieging Shiv Sena. BJP MLA Ram Kadam said that round-the-clock language like Jalebi. He said that when Shiv Sena is saying that Javed Akhtar’s statement is wrong, why has he not been arrested yet?
Javed Akhtar corrects the mistake!
Javed Akhtar has now said that Taliban-ruled Afghanistan can never be compared with India. The lyricist, who called Taliban barbaric, has described Indians as soft-minded. To make his point, he has hit many targets with one arrow. Javed Akhtar has tried to rectify the mistake by writing an article in Shiv Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ itself, so that the displeasure of BJP, Sangh as well as Shiv Sena can be removed. From reading his article, it seems that he has accepted the words of Shiv Sena.
The blood of Rajputs in Shahjahan’s veins! People boiled over Javed’s tweet
He has also written that India can never become Afghanistan. In an article written in ‘Saamana’, Javed Akhtar has praised Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray.
It is worth noting that instead of talking about the Sangh-VHP, Javed Akhtar directly told all Hindus to be tolerant, so that the dispute regarding his previous statement can now be pacified.
