On close observation, one can see clear difference between the two, Justice Katju (above) and Kaju, the Cashew nut (below)
Delhi: On Saturday, a famous twitter personality Mr. Khujliwala (name changed to protect identity) known for his smart wise-ass tweets was arrested by local police here for allegedly tweeting the words- “#Katju is a nut”. The tweet went viral and ended up being retweeted thousands of times. It also started a trend “#KatjuIsANut”. Justice Markandey Katju, who is also active on twitter, pissed off by the trend, filed a complaint at a local police station leading to arrest of Khujliwala.
Mr. Khujliwala is known for taking potshots and poking fun at celebrities and politicians. However, this time, his victim Justice Katju, didn’t take the potshot too lightly. Acting on the complaint, the police arrived at Khujliwala’s house sometime on Monday morning and arrested him.
The police booked a case of defamation against the accused Mr. Khujliwala, who was produced before a local magistrate. Some of his followers and supporters had gathered to protest outside the Court calling for his release.
It is learnt that during the proceeding, Mr. Khujliwala clarified that he was referring to Kaju (Hindi word for Cashew nuts). “I was talking about Cashew nut, which we call Kaju in Hindi. Kaju is a nut so all I said on twitter was ‘Kaju is a nut’, though I mistakenly wrote Kaju as Katju”, Mr. Khujliwala is reported to have said in his defence. Following this, the magistrate released Mr. Khujliwala with a stern warning not to compare Kaju,the nut, with Justice Katju.
Mr. Khujliwala was seen grinning away as he made his way out of the Court.
In what can be seen as a rare gesture of friendship, Congress leader Digvijay Singh has come out in support of Pakistani terrorist and LeT chief Hafiz Saeed. Diggy has extended a hand (or rather, a paw) of friendship to Hafiz Saeed, mastermind of 2008 attacks, by claiming that the latter was a juvenile in 2008.

“Hafiz Saeed sahab should be excused for the November 2008 Mumbai attacks because he was a juvenile”, claimed Diggy. Diggy wasted no time in extending his paws of support to Pakistani terrorist and LeT chief Hafiz Saeed soon after Diggy came to know that juveniles are at liberty to commit whatever heinous crimes they want in India.
This comes after Muhammad Afroz was ruled to be a juvenile by the Juvenile Justice Board even after his horrific role in the 2012 December 16 gang-rape case.
“Mr. Hafiz Saeed sahab was a juvenile during 2008 Mumbai attacks. He did not know what he was doing as he was just a child. He should be reformed and pardoned”, Diggy further elaborated.
Hafiz Saeed has taken Diggy’s statements very favorably. “Yes I was a juvenile in 2008. I can produce a birth certificate to prove it. Mr. Diggy is right”, Hafiz said happily. (Hafiz Saeed also fondly refers to Digvijay Singh as ‘Diggy’ now)
Pakistan has officially sent a birth certificate showing Hafiz’s birth date as March 10, 1999. Under this certificate, Hafiz would have been 9 years of age in 2008.
“I was just a child in 2008, I was only 9 years old. I was playing with my dolls when Mumbai terror attacks were happening”, Hafiz Saeed said to a local Pakistani news channel after Pakistan officially sent his birth certificate to New Delhi in a dossier.
Following this, Indian PM Manmohan Singh has made a strong statement. “We will not let Hafiz Saeed go scot-free even if he is juvenile. We have requested Pakistan to extradite Hafiz Saeed to India so we can send him to a juvenile remand home”, was PM’s official statement. However, after finishing, the PM asked someone behind the camera “Theek Hai?” just to make sure he said everything right.
