Bollywood's veteran lyricist stoked controversy, when he tweeted a sarcastic congratulatory message to National Investigation Agency (NIA), over the verdict on Mecca Masjid Blast case. Congratulations he tweeted, for successful accomplishment in Mecca Masjid case. To this, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson, G.V.L.Narsimha Rao tweeted that Akthar is a fan of Rahul Gandhi. Probably 'Hindu terrorism,' is his brainwave like his fictional stories, he said. This is not the first time that the two have taken to Twitter against each other. Akthar went on record in October last, to state sadly that the ethos of Indian democracy is shrinking.
