You may have written poems, but I have made history for India. This was the response that wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt had to give to lyricist Javed Akhtar who jumped into the Delhi University controversy.

Akthar took to his Twitter account and wrote, "If a hardly literate player or a wrestler troll a pacifist daughter of a martyr its understandable but whats wrong with some educated folks."

Dutt quickly hit back and wrote on his Twitter account, "Ji, aapne kavita-kahani ki rachna ki to humne bhi kuch karname kr choti hi sahi Bharat ke liye vishwapatal par itihaas racha hai. (You may have written poems and stories. But even I have made history for India on the world stage).

Ace wrestler Mahavir Phogat too did not take the comment by Akhtar kindly. He too took to Twitter and wrote," I spent my life trying to win medals for this country. They did not even spare a moment to call me illiterate. No man is more knowledgable that the one who has dedicated his entire life to the nation, Jai Hind."
