Veteran journalist and author MJ Akbar has quit India Today after a stint of around two years.

He will, however, continue to edit The Sunday Guardian, the weekly newspaper he launched in February, 2010 partly with his own investment even though he sold off his stake in the venture over a month ago to Good Morning India Pvt Ltd, a publishing company owned by prominent Congress leader Venod Sharma. The Sharmas also have interest in broadcast business through Information TV India Pvt Ltd, and had also acquired news channel INX earlier this year.

Akbar is quiet on his future plans. He had published his latest book “Tinderbox: The past and future of Pakistan” in January 2012 discussing the themes of identity crisis and class struggles in Pakistan.
This move, comes close on the heels of the defamation suit against TV Today, Headlines Today and Aaj Tak, filed by former Law Minister, Salman Khurshid’s wife.
