Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) – Actress Shabana Azmi, her husband and writer Javed Akhtar, and actor Naseeruddin Shah are sleeper-cell agents of the tukde-tukde gang. When Kanhayyalal was killed in Rajasthan none of these said a single word in that regard. These individuals were quiet when a Muslim youth burnt alive a Hindu girl in a shop in Jharkhand.

Mishra had made the above remark with reference to Shabana Azmi’s criticism when the punishment of the guilty in the Bilkis Bano rape case in the Gujarat riots was waived.
