Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal recently kicked up a storm on Twitter when he said that author Arundhati Roy should be tied to an Indian Army jeep instead of a stone-pelter.

"Instead of tying stone pelter on the Army jeep tie Arundhati Roy," Rawal tweeted.

Rawal, who is a member of parliament from Gujarat in the Lok Sabha joined the BJP in 2014.

While the reason for Rawal's tweet is still unknown, he received a lot of flak on Twitter for his comments.
