That is my reply to those people who posted thousands of smiling emoticons against India”.

Talking to Times of India, Akbar said, “There are many anti-national activities on social media. The incident of General Rawat’s death is the latest example. Most of the users who commented on the post of CDS General Rawat’s death with laughing emoji were Muslims.
“He did this because Rawat had taken several actions against extremists in Pakistan and Kashmir. Even after seeing such public posts that insulted the brave officer of the country, no major Muslim leader reacted. I Don’t want to be a part of this type of religion.
