Javed Akhtar has Twitter meltdown, again, this time for his hypocrisy on free speech being pointed out

Javed Akhtar has done it again. Noted lyricist and poet seem to be in the habit of picking fights with commoners and in the process, insulting them for merely having a different point of view.

Yesterday too, when Twitter user Ankit Jain reminded him that he had called for a female cop to be dismissed from her job because she had written a poem that he did not like, Javed Akhtar lost his cool and lashed out at Jain.

Ankit Jain was attempting to make a point about how hooligans desecrating memorials of martyrs and creating havoc were absolved of any guilt while lakhs of Kanwariyas are being branded hooligans due to some stray incidents.

Akhtar, attempting to justify his call for her dismissal, claimed he did so because one line of her poem was taken from his song.

Akhtar then went ahead to justify his stand against the female cop further, stating that she was inciting violence through her poetry. Jain reminded him that she was not and she was only calling out those who put Islam over India and indulge in anti-India activities.

On Jain’s reply that calling out Islamists and hate India brigade is not communalism, Akhtar went on to state that Jain deserves his contempt because he is ‘petty and devoid of introspection’.

What transpired next was nothing short of bizarre. Javen Akhtar went on to talk about Ankit Jain’s “type”. Called “his type” hypocrites and cowards. Jain’s “type” however, was not clarified by Akhtar.

Akhtar then accused Jain and ‘his gang’ did of not raising the slogan of Bharat Mata Ki Jai before the British and they were ‘collaborators like Muslim League’.

Javed Akhtar’s hypocrisy and attempt to attack Ankit was called out by other Twitter users.

Javed Akhtar has had Twitter meltdowns before too. Ironically he tried to justify his rage against a female cop or using one line from his song, but had gone on a Twitter rampage when earlier some Twitter users had tried to point out to him that his movie Sholay was almost entirely lifted out of Hollywood movie plots. Javed Akhtar has in the past been called out for being a radicalism apologist, Rohingya terrorist sympathiser and he had even defended Triple Talaq. He had also abused people and has mocked legendary sportspersons as ‘hardly literate’, just because they had a different opinion than him.

Javed Akhtar or his fans can justify his petulant behaviour saying that he was provoked and angered and thus gave it back in the same coin. If that be the case, then why should he find fault with a cop for merely expressing in words after being angered by what happened at Azad Maidan. If words born out of anger can be the reason for being fired from a job, perhaps Akhtar should fire himself from whatever job he has given himself, for that’s all he has been doing on Twitter.
