    Tarek, you have a blind spot about Javek Akhtar’s communal venom. To give an example, there was recently an incident in which a huge mob of Islamic fanatics descended on South Bombay and starting vandalizing public property, including a memorial for war martyrs. The mob had also attacked police officers without mercy. Following that incident, a lady police officer had written a poem expressing her anguish at the behavior of the mob. This man Javed Akhtar was so furious at this lady police officer that he publicly spewed venom on her and was calling for her to be sacked. The whole incident left a very bitter taste in those who had thought that Javed was actually a secular individual.

    And so they learned. Perhaps a few people were somewhat less “sickular” after that.

    btw, Tarek Fatah does have more than one “blind spot.”
