After Virendra Sehwag and Randeep Hooda got caught in the Gurmehar Kaur debacle, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju took to Twitter to express his opinion. “Who’s polluting this young girl’s mind? A strong Arm Force prevents a war. India never attacked anyone but a weak India was always invaded,” Rijiju wrote.

Contradicting his views, lyricist Javed Akhtar slammed him, saying: “I don’t about her but Mr Minister I know who is polluting your mind.” The songwriter added, “If a hardly literate player or a wrestler troll a pacifist daughter of a martyr its understandable but whats wrong with some educated folks. Mr Minister, you have condemned the left by falsely accusing them for celebrating soldiers killing n not a word about AVBP. Grossly biased.”
