“Since Sehwag undoubtedly a great player has clarified he was just being facetious and is not anti Gurmehar I take back my rather harsh words,” Akhtar tweeted.

The 71-year-old lyricist had earlier called Sehwag “a hardly literate player” when the cricketer trolled Kaur after her campaign “I am not afraid of ABVP” went viral.

Later, Sehwag, in a series of tweets, had defended himself, claiming that his social media post in reply to Kaur was an “attempt to be facetious” rather than one to bully anyone over their opinion, adding that agreement or disagreement was not even a factor.
