Akhtar wrote, “Imran has thrown a no ball. Every time they (Pakistan) ask what makes you think its our doing. After the mumbai terrorist attack a pak TV anchor asked me why you are so sure it is Pakistan, it can be any country. I said fine, I will give you 3, you choose one: Brazil, Sweden and Pakistan [sic].”


Akhtar also replied to the Pakistan PM’s tweet directly, saying that he was ‘touched’ by Khan’s concern for the Indian minorities.

“I can’t imagine,if you care so much for others how compassionate n protective you must be towards the Hindus ,Christians , Ahmadiyas Mohajir and Balochis of your own country [sic],” he said.

Imran Khan, in his tweet, had written, “The Hindu Supremacist Modi Govt poses a threat to Pakistan as well as to the minorities in India and in fact to the very fabric of Nehru and Gandhi's India.
