Is opposing Narendra Modi an anti-national activity, asks Javed Akhtar
Friday November 8, 2013 0:03 AM, News Network

Renowned Bollywood scriptwriter, lyricist and activist Javed Akhtar on Thursday said some people think that opposing Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was an anti-national activity.

"Some idiots imply that opposing Modi is an anti national activity. Are they suggesting that we, the 90 % Indians are anti nationals", Javed Akhtar tweeted on microblogging website Twitter.

Last month, the lyricist, who is also a Rajya Sabha MP, had retorted to those who were sending him "indecent messages".

On Twitter, he wrote: "The kind of crude , indecent and Vulgar messages I get from Modi lovers establishes the low quality of his followers (sic)."

The Akhtar bashing by Modi's supporters began when in October, Akhtar said Narendra Modi can never be a good prime minister, alleging that the BJP's PM aspirant was not only tainted of communal riots but was also "undemocratic".

"Besides, all talks of involvement in Gujarat riots of 2002 which are before the courts, this man (Modi) is not democratic," Akhtar had told reporters on the sidelines of a school function in Patna.
