NEW DELHI: Former Vishwa Hindu Praishad’s international president, Pravin Togadia’s outfit on Thursday has announced a cash reward of Rs two lakh for anyone who thrashes Bollywood actor Salman Khan in public.
Govind Parashar, Agra chief of the organization ‘Hindu Hi Aage,’ alleged Salman Khan’s production ‘Loveratri’ distorted ‘Navratri’- a Hindu festival and hurt Hindu sentiments.
Joined by the organization’s members, Parashar went to Agra’s Bhagwan Talkies and burnt posters of Khan’s movies, reported Hindustan Times.
“The movie is being produced by Salman Khan by distorting ‘Navratri’ – a religious occasion with which sentiments of lakhs of Hindus are attached. We condemn such intention of Salman Khan and seek ban on the movie. If it is permitted to be screened, we would oppose it tooth and nail,” Parashar warned and added, “We won’t tolerate hurting of Hindu sentiments and as city unit president of Hindu Hi Aage I have declared a reward of Rs two lakh for anyone thrashing cine actor Salman Khan in public,” he was quoted by HT.
Parashar has a history of violence. He was once a member of Bajrang Dal and was earlier jailed for exhibiting firearms in public during Dussehra.
