New Delhi. Famous poet, veteran lyricist and screenwriter Javed Akhtar has compared the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to the Taliban. He advises people who support this ideology to introspect. In an interview with NDTV, Akhtar said without hesitation that there was no difference between the goals of the RSS, the VHP and organizations like the Bajrang Dal and the Taliban. The Indian constitution stands in the way of the organization’s goal, but if given the chance, it will cross the constitutional line. Javed Akhtar said this in an interview given to NDTV.
Lyricist Akhtar said there is a right-winger all over the world. “It’s a complete exercise to become a Taliban,” he said of the country’s minority violence. These people are doing this kind of work. They are the same people, the only difference between the two names. The Indian Constitution stands in their way, but they will also cross the constitutional boundary if given the opportunity. Akhtar has criticized a section of Muslims who are happy for the Taliban to take power.
‘Both have the same mentality’
Javed Akhtar advised those who support organizations like RSS, VHP and Bajrang Dal to introspect. He said, ‘The Taliban are barbaric, but what is the difference between the Taliban and those you support? Their ground is getting stronger and they are moving towards their goal. Both have the same mentality.
“Such people are very few in number,” Akhtar said, referring to the happiness of a section of the country’s Muslims when Afghanistan came under Taliban rule. Most of the Indian Muslims are shocked by this statement. The lyricist added, “There are people in the country who are moving towards the Taliban. Their goal is the same. Women should not use mobile phones, the anti-Romeo brigade should go that way. I see a lot of similarities between the Taliban and those who try to be like the Taliban.
