On Monday, a Thane court issued a show-cause notice to Bollywood lyricist Javed Akhtar on a defamation suit filed against him over his alleged remarks seeking to compare the RSS with the Taliban.
The suit which is filed by RSS activist Vivek Champanerkar in the court of the additional chief judicial magistrate and joint civil judge (senior division), seeks Re 1 as a compensation from Javed. The court ordered the issuance of the notice returnable on November 12.
Advocate Aditya Mishra, who appeared for the complainant, argued in the court and claimed the defendant (Javed) had made "derogatory" remarks against the RSS while appearing in a show of a private news channel. In the petition, Vivek said that the statements made by Javed were aimed at destroying the RSS’s image in front of the general public.
