News Desk: Well known lyricist and poet Javed Akhtar is facing heat for his controversial remarks on right-wing outfits like Rashtriya Swamsevak Sangha (RSS), Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal. Huge police force were deployed outside his residence.

Recently Mr. Akhtar, in an interview, compared the right-wing outfits with Taliban. And after that, he faced heat from BJP MPs for his controversial remarks. Even the Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamna slammed him for his derogatory remarks.

The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) slammed Akhtar, saying his comments were a “conspiracy” to confuse the society and demanded strict action against him.

VHP national general secretary Milind Parande said “The Taliban is a terrorist organisation which believes in violence and is anti-women. Comparing such organisations with the RSS, VHP and Bajrang Dal…..I condemn his statement. All these three organisations do not believe in violence and do not work against anyone”

“They do social service. It seems like a conspiracy when such big people give such statements and society gets confused. His statement was aimed at confusing society by telling lies. Strict action should be taken against him” he added.

BJP MLA and state spokesperson Ram Kadam condemned his remarks and said “No film involving him will be allowed to screen in the country until he apologises for his comments”
