In Lucknow, a prominent Shia cleric Maulana Kalbe Jawwad, and social activist Swami Agnivesh flayed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for his three-day long ‘Sadbhavna’ fast and termed it as a drama. Jawwad, who observed a day-long fast, broke it in in the presence of Agnivesh and different religious leaders. Swami Agnivesh also lashed out at Modi saying the hall where he sat for his fast cost lakhs of rupees. Earlier this week, Kalbe Jawwad had compared Modi with Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab and Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, and had attacked all those attending his ‘Sadbhavna’ fast.
