Veteran Indian actor and Parliament lawmaker Paresh Rawal caused outrage on Monday after saying author and activist Arundhati Roy should be tied to an army jeep and used as a human-shield.
Rawal was making a reference to a recent video clip that went viral which showed the Indian army using a stone-pelter as a human shield by tying him to the front of an army jeep in held Kashmir.
Rawal received backlash on Twitter..
While some agreed with him..
An investigation was conducted regarding the Kashmiri youth tied to the jeep. The court of inquiry convened by Indian army in held Kashmir gave a ‘clean chit’ to the officer who tied the civilian to an army jeep’s bonnet.
Roy is an award-winning writer and known for her anti-India views on Kashmir.
