New Delhi: Defending Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy Monday took a jibe at actor Aamir Khan.
Swamy tweeted this morning, ''Why so much hu ha about Parrikar's statement on Aamir? If Aamir is ignorant that to love janma bhoomi is unconditional then he needs a teacher.''
Swamy's remarks came after Opposition parties hit out at Parrikar for raking up the issue.
Congress Sunday attacked Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar over his jibe against actor Aamir Khan, accusing BJP and RSS of "concerted conspiracy" to hound Dalits, minorities, writers, actors and whoever dissents against the Narendra Modi government.
Parrikar had reportedly yesterday said anyone speaking against the country must be "taught a lesson" and had referred to alleged anti-national sloganeering at JNU earlier this year and remarks by an "actor" who "had said that his wife wants to live out of India".
Khan had late last year spoken about a "sense of insecurity" resulting from increasing intolerance in the country, and mentioned his wife Kiran Rao's apprehensions about the future of their child in India.
According to Parrikar, when the actor made the statement last year, many people had protested against his remark and even uninstalled the mobile application of an online shopping site he was associated with, while the firm had also pulled out the advertisement featuring him.
