'Satya' Actor's Controversial Comments On Bengalis Sparks Row

Police complaint filed against actor-politician Paresh Rawal

Shankar Dada MBBS actor Paresh Rawal has landed in a soup with his controversial comments on Bengalis. While campaigning in Gujarat for the ruling party BJP, Paresh Rawal said, “The people of Gujarat would tolerate inflation but not Bangladeshis and Rohingya next door.”

Now in the latest twist of events, the ruling Trinamool Congress in Bengal has lashed out at actor Paresh Rawal for his controversial comments. Former Member of Parliament and CPI(M) leader Md Salim has filed a police complaint against the Teen Maar actor at the Taltala Police Station in Kolkata. Salim asked the police to treat his complaint as an FIR and prosecute the actor as his comments insult Bengalis. In his letter to the police, Md Salim said, "A large number of Bengalis reside outside the limits of the state. I apprehend many of them will be prejudicially targeted and affected because of the vicious remarks made by Paresh Rawal," Paresh Rawal's comments on Bengalis have caused great anger amongst people and ruling Trinamool Congress is also taking a strong objection.

Though the legendary actor made an effort to explain his comments with an apology but ended up aggravating the furore by stating that he meant "illegal Bangladeshis and Rohingya" when he used the word "Bengalis”.
