Paresh Rawal shouldn't have dragged woman into stone-pelting issue: Shaina NC

Paresh Rawal's post has enraged the people who alleged him of inciting mob violence

It wasn't clear what context he was speaking in.

However Rawal's comments drew flack from many Twitter users with some seeing it as an attempt to incite violence by an elected public representative. Digivijaya Singh, the Congress leader responded, " Why not the person who stitched the PDP/BJP alliance". "Arundhati Roy has always been anti-national; she has been supporting the terrorists in Kashmir", Pandit said. On Sunday night, while the country was watching M S Dhoni's on-field histrionics in the Indian Premier League final, Rawal had his own theatrical moment on Twitter.

In April, a Kashmiri resident, allegedly a stone-pelter, was tied to an Army jeep as a human shield.

Roy's comments were not available but Ghosh sarcastically tweeted, "wonderful sir, too good". The video, Rawal is referring to, was reportedly shot in the Beerwah area of Budgam district, where miscreants disrupted polling during the bypoll to Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency by pelting stones. Since then the move to tie the man to the jeep came under heavy criticism.

The stand-up comedy group "Aisi Taisi Democracy" had a sarcastic tweet on Rawal when it said, "somebody please tie a copy of "The God of Small Things" on Actor-MP saab's vehicle".

Arundhati Roy became a household name in 1997 when her novel The God of Small Things won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction.

"Paresh Rawal is entitled to his opinion when it comes to stone pelters and that could be an emotion echoed by many people". She has also been a strong critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who rose from the state where Rawal is now an MP.
