- Javed Akhtar furious at Tariq Fateh for sharing a link to a news report ‘criticizing’ TMC
- Javed Akhtar gave a reply to Fateh on Twitter – Went so low that the people who admired are feeling sad
- Tariq Fateh and famous lyricist Javed Akhtar’s tussle on Twitter is nothing new.
The Twitter spat between famous lyricist Javed Akhtar and Pakistani-Canadian writer Tarak Fateh is nothing new. But on Sunday, Akhtar lashed out at Tariq Fateh only for sharing a link to a news story about TMC’s mistake in understanding Goa! This link left the lyricist so distraught that he started cursing Tariq Fateh- Kitna down gaye Tariq Sahib.
What’s the matter?
In fact, Tariq Fateh had shared a link to a news report related to TMC on the online content curation tool ‘Paper.ly’. It has been told in that news report of NDTV that 5 big leaders of Goa have left the party within about 3 months of joining TMC, alleging communalism. While leaving the party, these leaders alleged that TMC was trying to create a rift between Hindus and Christians for the sake of votes. Assembly elections are due in Goa in the next few months.
Actually, anyone can create their own page on ‘Paper.ly’ and can create ‘Newspaper’ about the news according to their choice. This is a kind of aggregator where you can share any link. Tariq Fateh has also made a page on it under the name ‘What The Fatah’. On the same, he has also given place to the news of TMC.
What did Javed Akhtar write?
Sharing the link of TMC news on Twitter, Tariq Fateh wrote – Latest ‘What The Fatah’. Then what was left. Javed Akhtar was furious. Responding to Tariq Fateh on Twitter, Tariq Sahib, seeing you fall so low, feels sad for all those who once praised you. All I can hope is that at least you are well satisfied, my best wishes.’
Tariq Fateh did not react to this reply of Javed Akhtar. However, on Twitter, there has been a fierce verbal war between the two over ideology and Islam. Both did not miss even personal attacks on each other.
