Zakaria Does Not Deserve a Reply: Akkitham12/06/2012 00:24:19 Courtesy :Mathrubhumi
“The allegations hurled at me by philosopher Zakaria, that I exist with Hindutva groups, does not deserve a reply,” said Mahakavi Akkitham. “I do not invest much time for the opinion others frame about me. Such issues are not of my concern either. Neither do I taunt or condemn anyone in this regard,” he added.
Akkitham said that whatever stand taken is something that cannot be ignored by anyone. “In fact, whatever the sense be, my words have been taken into consideration and I am happy about that,” he clarified. In fact Akkitham made it obvious that Zakaria’s condemning him has been brought to his notice by many people. “There is not much difference between Bharatiyata and Hindutva,” he said.
“I have been associated with Tapasya, the cultural wing of Sangh Parivar, from 1984. In fact, this country should be further built up by thinkers, who have a dedication of purpose,” he stated.
Zakaria had earlier made a statement that Akitham, who exists with “Fascist Hindus should be condemned.” He also added to his statement by calling for a denunciation of the regard and respect offered to Akittom by the cultural fraternity.
