Days after veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah stoked controversy by saying that intolerance is on a rise in the country, BJP MLA from Kathauli has threatened that those who feel insecure or unsafe in india, should be bombed.
BJP MLA Vikram Saini said, “My personal view is that those who say they feel unsafe and threatened in India should be bombed. Give me a ministry and I will bomb all such people; not even one will be spared.” Without naming Shah, he slammed those who complain about intolerance and said that he will bomb such people himself.
Last month, a controversy broke out after Shah said that he is concerned about the future of his in the country. Many including actor Anupam Kher and Baba Ramdev were critical of Shah’s comments. The Uttar Pradesh Navnirman Senam went on to the extent of booking flight tickets to Pakistan for the 68-year-old actor.
The controversy turned uglier after Pakistan Prime Minister cited Shah’s comments to take a jibe at the Indian government over intolerance against minorities in the country. “Will show Modi government how to treat minorities,” said Khan.
Shah was one of the first ones to slam Imran Khan for trying to spark a debate over his comments. “These matters don’t concern you. Look at your own house,” Shah said.
