Mumbai, Jan 29:BJP MP from Ahmedabad East, Paresh Rawal once again ignited the controversy over Intolerance Debate in the country. Questioning people, who have returned their awards, Rawal said that the whole "award wapsi" and "intolerance debate" were "non-issue" and "bogus".
The Bollywood actor, who is known as a strong supporter of Narendra Modi, also claimed, "Where were they when atrocities against the minorities were committed earlier. Wasn't there attacks on freedom of expression earlier?"
"My own movie Oh My God was not screened in a number of cities due to various reasons. The whole issue originates due to the constipation in people's mind regarding Narendra Modi," Rawal added.
While speaking at a function at Nirma university on Wednesday, Jan 27, Rawal also compared PM Modi with Lord Ram.
The actor was quoted as saying that like the stones with Lord Ram's name on them floated on water in Ramayana, Modi's name ensured victory of BJP in 2014 General Elections.
