Taking to Twitter on early Tuesday morning, Javed Akhtar slammed the trollers saying that their derogatory remarks were passed for his ‘freedom fighter’ great, great grandfather who died in the year 1864 in Kala Pani. He said that these abuses were thrown when he raised his voice against the horrific online auction of Muslim women.

Javed Akhtar, further in his rant against the ‘Bulli Bai’ app which did an online ‘auction’ of women, said that he was ‘appalled’ with the silence of everyone on the issue.

The lyricist also gave it back to a troll who questioned him for not speaking up for those people who did not belong to his ‘cadre’. He said that he has always stood against Muslim fanatics, adding that he is not a “Muslim right-winger but a proud Indian”.

Not just Javed Akhtar, but his wife Shabana Azmi also gave it back to the trolls who accused Fazl-e-Haq of trying to bring down a temple during British rule. In a tweet, Shabana Azmi called the particular tweet saying that Fazl-e-Haq was sentenced to Kala Pani by the British and that he was a freedom fighter.
