After Mahavir Phogat, daughter Babita Phogat hits out at Javed Akhtar for his 'illiterate' remark

Hitting out at Bollywood's lyricist and scriptwriter Javed Akhtar, Babita Phogat said, "I am doing well for my country. I am not illiterate."

It seems that the Phogat family and Javed Akhtar are getting involved into a Twitter rant over Gurmeher Kaur. This time, female wrestler Babita Phogat took to Twitter when Bollywood lyricist and scriptwriter tried to insult the wrestling fraternity for tweeting against Gurmehar Kaur recently.

Hitting out on Javed Akhtar, Babita Phogat said, “I am doing well for my country. I am not illiterate. Those literate people who speak like this for their country are termed are illiterate.”

Prominent personalities, sportspersons, politicians have had their say on the Gurmehar Kaur’s Facebook row.

The row kick-started when Gurmeher Kaur, a student of the University of Delhi, blamed ABVP for the violence at Ramjas college. She changed her Facebook profile picture holding a placard which read, “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me #StudentsAgainstABVP.”

Earlier on March 1, Mahavir Singh Phogat also took a dig at Akhtar for calling his daughter ‘illiterates’.

So, here is how it all started:

Javed Akhtar tweeted, “If a hardly literate player or a wrestler troll a pacifist daughter of a martyr it’s understandable but what’s wrong with some educated folks.” Akhtar did not take any name but Mahavir Phogat considered it as an insult to his daughters. Phogat tweeted twice in Hindi, replying to Akhtar’s tweet on March 1.

“A person who dedicates his life to the motherland is wiser than anyone else,” he tweeted. “Here we spent our lifetime to get our country a gold medal and they do not take a moment to declare them as ‘illiterates’.”
