New Delhi:

Veteran actor and Member of Parliament Paresh Rawal kicked up a storm on Twitter on Sunday night by posting a controversial tweet about famous author Arundhati Roy. 

In an out of character tweet, Rawal said the author should be tied to the army jeep instead of stone pelters. 

The Ahmedabad East MP was referring to the incident from last month, when an innocent man was tried in front of an Indian Army vehicle, being paraded in a village in Central Kashmir’s Budgam district, as a warning to stone-pelters. Opposition leader, Omar Abdullah tweeted the video then, requesting for urgent inquiry and follow-up.

Rawal’s tweet invited flake from Twitterati as several social media users termed his actions illegal and warned him against inciting violence through his words. 


Arundhati Roy, author of international bestseller ‘The God of Small Things’, is vocal about her criticism of Indian Army’s actions in North East and Kashmir Valley.
