Even as the Shiv Sena clarified that the announcement made by Rajeev Tandon of its Punjab unit, in which he declared a reward of Rs. one lakh for anyone who slaps actor Aamir Khan, is not the party's official view, an Islamic right wing group from Tamil Nadu, Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath, has said that they would give a prize money of Rs. two lakh to anyone who slaps Uddhav Thackeray, chief of Shiv Sena.
In a statement, the Jamaat said “Shiv Sena has announced that they would give Rs. one lakh to anyone who slaps Aamir Khan. We will give Rs. 2 lakh to the guy who slaps Uddhav Thackeray." The Muslim community will not be cowed down by politics of hate and intimidation. “We will resist religious fanatics in every way," it said.
