All religious beliefs as good as Tripura CM’s views: Javed Akhtar

Mumbai: Writer Javed Akhtar on Thursday took a jibe at Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb for saying that the Internet existed during the time of Mahabharata.

Taking a jibe at Deb, Akthar on Thursday tweeted: “Why are people making fun of the CM of Tripura for claiming that there was internet in Mahabharata times? They should look at their own religious beliefs with the same objectivity. Any religious belief in the world is only as logical and reasonable as the beliefs of this man.”

Deb on Tuesday claimed that Internet and satellite communication existed in the days of Mahabharata. He said so while inaugurating a two-day workshop on computerisation of Public Distribution System (PDS) in Agartala.
