“Intolerance calls to retract a tweet by free speech fighters. I refused. Facebook wall of hate/abuse by supporters of a trip to promote love! Your name is hypocritical! Life goes on,” he said.

Anil Antony, on Tuesday, spoke out against the BBC for meddling in the country’s affairs, after the broadcaster aired a documentary about Prime Minister Modi.
“Despite the big differences with the BJP, I think those who put their views on the BBC, a state-sponsored channel with a long history of prejudice, and on Jack Straw, the brains behind the war Iraq, more than institutions are making a dangerous priority, will undermine our sovereignty,” Antony said in a tweet.
“No matter what internal differences we may have, we should not let external agencies take advantage of that to create divisions at home,” he said.
