Panaji: Veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan should keep his son Salman Khan under house arrest, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said on Saturday, adding that the Bollywood superstar "blabbers" because no one in his family has ever died for the country.
"When the country is in peril and there is prospect of war against Pakistan, his father Salim Khan should put his son Salman under house arrest, because one doesn't know what he will say when and insult his father," Raut told the media here.
"No one in his (Salman) family has died for the country, therefore he keeps blabbering. Even taking morchas (protest march) to their homes have no impact," Raut also said.

The comment has come in the wake of Salman's comment that "Pakistani artistes are just artistes and not terrorists. Terrorism and art are two different subjects."
His comments have attracted criticism.
Raut also praised Salim Khan for taking a strong line on Pakistan.
"One one hand, Salim Khan gives 'Vande Mataram' slogan, takes a firm line against Pakistan, he raises voices against ills in the Muslim religion and Salman Khan being from the same family, speaks like a fool," Raut said.
"Cine stars or those from the Indian film industry, their lips should be permanently sewn, especially Salman Khan," the Shiv Sena leader also said.
