Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal recently kicked up a storm on Twitter when he said that author Arundhati Roy should be tied to an Indian Army jeep instead of a stone pelter.
“Instead of tying stone pelter on the Army jeep tie Arundhati Roy,” Rawal tweeted.
Rawal, who is a member of parliament from Gujarat in the Lok Sabha joined the BJP in 2014.
While the reason for Rawal’s tweet is still unknown, he received a lot of flak on Twitter for his comments.
Recently, a video in which a youth was allegedly tied to an Army jeep as a human shield against stone pelting in Srinagar had gone viral on social media, leading to an outrage.
Arundhati Roy is an award-winning writer who is known for her controversial views on Kashmir
