“Maafi Maango Nahi Toh Zubaan Kheech Lenge,” Karni Sena Threatens Javed Akhtar For His “Ghoonghat Ban” Comment
Javed Akhtar has called for trouble as the famous lyricist, yesterday, at an event in Madhya Pradesh spoke about the burqa ban and said that the ghoonghat system in Rajasthan should be outlawed too if  burqa ban is being considered. This statement has left Karni Sena furious, who often march down on the streets to stage a protest against anything and anyone who speak differently from their language and understanding.

Javed Akhtar made the statement in reply to Shiv Sena urging the Indian government to emulate Sri Lanka in banning burqa on grounds of national security. He had said, “If you want to bring a law banning burqa, I have no objection. But before the last phase of election in Rajasthan, this government should announce a ban on the practice of ‘ghoonghat’ (covering of the face by Hindu women) in that state. I feel that ‘ghoonghat’ should go and burqa should go. I will be happy,”
