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.

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.”

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

          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.
