Javed Akhtar threatened by Karni Sena. Here’s what son Farhan has to sa
Javed Akhtar recently made a controversial statement in Bhopal at an event. Javed had said, “If you want to bring a law banning burqa here then before the last phase of election in Rajasthan, government should announce a ban on the practice of ghoonghat in Rajasthan. I feel that ghoonghat should go and burqa should go. I will be happy.”
The statement has made Karni Sena angry and they have threatened Javed Akhtar. Karni Sena members have said that they will enter Javed’s house and beat him if he doesnt apologise.
Reacting to these threats, Farhan said, “My dad has his opinion on things and they are very valid opinions. I do feel that if anybody takes offence then they also have a valid reason to take offence and say what they feel. Any kind of threat or violence is not an answer. I am against violence of all kinds. If somebody is threatening my family or anybody else, violence is not the answer.”
