Bollywood film personality Javed Akhtar has described the Hindu community as the most tolerant majority in the world. He added that India will never become an Afghanistan for the same reason.
Akthar made the remarks in his column for a publication run by the Shiv Sena, which is Maharashtra’s ruling party.
The lyricist has also been vocal in his criticism of the Taliban. “Every decent person, every democratic government, every civilized society in the world should refuse to recognize and condemn Taliban for their ruthless repression of Afghan women or let’s forget the words like justice, humanity, and conscience,” he wrote.
