BJP wants Arundhati to be tied to army jeep instead of stone pelters…..

Panin Kasheer News 20170414_014211

Actor and BJP MP Paresh Rawal took to Twitter and wrote that instead of a stone Kashmiri pelter, eminent author and political activist “Arundhati Roy should be tied to an army jeep”.
This comes in the wake of a video going viral last month which showed a young man tied to the front of an Indian Army vehicle, being paraded in a village in Budgam district of Central Kashmir, as an apparent warning to stone pelters.
Bharatiya Janata Party’s Rawal became a Member of Parliament (MP) from the Ahmedabad East constituency during the 2014 Indian general election. The BJP in coalition with PDP is currently in power in the Jammu and Kashmir.
Arundhati Roy became a household name in 1997 when her novel The God of Small Things won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction. She has been an extremely vocal political activist, often highlighting human rights issues within India and beyond. Her new novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, is expected to hit stands and bookstores next month.
Rawal’s Tweet has invited criticism from Twitterati who alleged that a Parliamentarian was inciting mob violence
