Lyricist Javed Akhtar Given security After Death Threats

Lyricist and Rajya Sabha MP Javed Akhtar has been provided round the clock security after death threats have been sent to him through a series of emails, for calling an Islamic cleric ‘insane’ during a TV debate on fatwa against working women.  He had criticized the Darul Uloom Deoband’s fatwa, which stated that it is ‘haram’ (illegal) to accept a woman’s earnings.

An email received by him on May 12 had the subject line, ‘your countdown has begun”. The mail has been signed by one Anisul Islam. The cyber cell of Mumbai police and Anti Terrorism Squad are trying to find the source of the email threat. Javed Akhtar said, “I would not be restricted in movement or speech.
