The Punjab unit of the Shiv Sena on Wednesday announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh per slap for anyone slapping actor Aamir Khan over his recent remarks on “intolerance” in India.

The announcement was made during the Sena’s protest outside hotel MBD Radisson Blu in Ludhiana where Aamir is staying. He is camping in Ludhiana for the shooting of his upcoming movie, Dangal.

During the protest, Shiv Sena workers allegedly used derogatory language against the actor and burnt his photographs.

Rajeev Tandon, Punjab chairman, Shiv Sena, claimed that “any person who will slap Aamir Khan will get Rs 1 lakh for each slap from the Shiv Sena”.

Tandon said, “We give an opportunity to the manager and employees of the hotel and also the team of his film to slap Aamir and get Rs 1 lakh from us. The courageous and patriotic persons who will slap Aamir Khan in Ludhiana will get Rs 1 lakh reward per slap from us.”
The hotel management were a harried lot on Wednesday, as the Shiv Sena workers blocked traffic in front of the hotel and raised slogans against Aamir.

Manav Inder Singh Guram, manager, marketing and communications, MBD Group, told The Indian Express, “We have complete coordination with the police and they are being updated on the situation. The hotel employees have also been told to remain extra vigilant to avoid any suspicious person reaching near Aamir’s room. The actor was not in the hotel when the protest took place. The number of police personnel at the hotel have been increased from four to eight.”

Rupinder Kaur Sran, assistant commissioner of police (Ludhiana west), said a quick response team (QRT) consisting of 15 policemen, along with force from Sarabha Nagar police station, is patrolling near the hotel.

Meanwhile, sources said Aamir would leave Ludhiana by late Wednesday or Thursday morning.

        Aamir should offer to get slapped by anyone who agrees to give the money to charity.

          Different races,religions and languages are beauty of India.Just like Eyes, nose and lips are beauty of face.Shiv Sena is doing the same as if someone say, I love my eyes on my face, but I hate nose, it should be cut off.

            Jinnah stood for United India, but extremists discouraged him and caused division of sub continent.Extremism always ruined societies and nations. So it should be condemned whether in India or any where in the world. Actually Jinnah was 'veer' whi initially advanced for United India.But extremism ruined his all efforts in this perspective. So any person which stood for greatness and integrity of India should be respected, saluted and encouraged just like Aamir Khan, which is a 'veer'. And should discouraged all destructive efforts and struggles which may harm India. Shiv Sena if since red to India, it should work for unity and progress of India and should respect Aamir Khan and such personnels. Sorry to say, if Shiv Sena continues to work at same direction, it will be just like to play role of 'Ravan' in disguise of 'Raam'. It is message to Anupam Kher, if we continue to discourage one Veer after another, then it will be just like to expect crop of rice while sowing the seeds of wheat.

                    This is disgusting. Government must act tough with rogue elements within any political party including their own. Such people are only degrading the government and the country. Democracy don't give such freedom to anyone.

                              The VHP activits attacked J&K Independend MLA Eg.Abdul Rashid. After that the MLA responded and said it is the simdom of Indolarance in India. Now how much money these people are going to give for slapping him. If anybody want to name the activity of offering money for slaping a person, Will you name it Tolarace? In India we have many senas ready to do anything for their masters. It shows that with money power anybady can induce people for violance. If our GVT is really standing for peace, those people must be arrested and broght befor the Law.

                                If report is true, Rajeev Tandon should be arrested immediately for inciting people to take law in their hands for harming an individual. If Rajeev Tandons are not reined in, India will go to dogs.

                                    Love begets love; true faith wins everyone across as Aamir himself can testify based on the success of his movie PK. By articulating fear based on religious divide, Aamir has lost the love of all non- Muslim Indians. At the same time, there will be a sizeable proportion of Indian Muslims who do not endorse Aamir either.

                                      No matter what, one cannot endorse acts of reprisal, revenge or hatred. The call to slap Aamir is an act of intolerance alien to our culture. Please do not prove Aamir right either by supporting or silently endorsing this act by a lunatic outfit. Law and order should prevail.

                                          Proud to see our ' tolerance ' !! Nobody is worried about what message SS and their likes are sending out about our country . No case filed against these people . Every other day these people break the law .... But a person who just uttered his concern is bed a traitor .
