Karachi: Renowned Indian poet and scriptwriter Javed Akhtar on Monday took to Twitter to respond to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s criticism of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

In his August 18 tweet, The Pakistani prime minister had criticized Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party after the Indian government revoked Kashmir’s special status amid a strict security clampdown in the Occupied Muslim majority region.

“The Hindu Supremacist Modi Govt poses a threat to Pakistan as well as to the minorities in India & in fact to the very fabric of Nehru & Gandhi’s India. To understand the link between Nazi ideology & the ethnic cleansing & genocide ideology of RSS-BJP Founding Fathers just Google,” the prime minister had tweeted.

While replying to Pakistani prime minister, Javed Akhtar avoided criticizing the Indian government and instead took aim at Pakistan’s founding father.

“Dear Mr Imraan Khan , I am deeply touched that you are so worried about the “ very fabric of Nehru n Gandhi ‘ s India “ . By the way it was the same fabric of Nehru n Gandhi ‘ s India that was torn by your Qaid-e- Azam in 1947 . Remember ???,” Javed Akhtar said.
