Soon after this, renowned lyricist and writer Javed Akhtar tweeted in support of the singer slamming the foundation for threats. He condemned their act by writing: “In strongest possible words I condemn those regressive and reactionary organisations who are threatening Sona Mahapatra for making a music video of a Amir Khusrau Geet. These mullas should know that Amir Khusrau belongs to every Indian. He is not your property .”
