+100%-

In the ensuing political chastisation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on social media by Congress for his association with Asaram, actor Farhan Akhtar on Wednesday came out in support of the PM Modi saying that his patronisation of the jailed guru “before he was exposed to be a pervert is no crime”.
Farhan Akhtar, in a tweet, said, “So, Asaram is a child rapist. And he has been found guilty. Good. But can people please stop sharing images of him with PM Modi. Patronising him before he was exposed to be a pervert is no crime. Let’s be fair and give him the benefit of doubt that he, like us, did not know”.
Farhan Akhtar’s comments came after old photos of PM Narendra Modi and Asaram began doing rounds on social media. Congress party on Wednesday also shared a video on Twitter, slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his association with the pervert guru.
The video mocks PM Narendra Modi with the title “a man is known by the company he keeps”.
The video, which has chastising narrative, consists of an old footage of PM Narendra Modi seeking blessings from Asaram. In the footage, while addressing a gathering, the then Gujarat CM Narendra Modi can be seen talking about his association with Asaram as his support base.
Later, the video cuts into Asaram’s remarks, where he can be heard talking about convergence between “political power” and “religious power” for the development of the state. He further adds that he has been advocating the convergence of two ‘powers’ but now he as found his “Shiva”, referring to then Gujarat CM Narendra Modi.
