Dabangg star, Salman Khan is in hot soup for making a controversial remark about the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, to a Pakistani news channel. Too much hype has been created around the 26/11 attacks because elite people were targeted. Attacks have happened in trains and small towns too, but no one talked about it so much, Salman had reportedly told the channel.
Back home in India, Salman Khan’s remarks were judged as insensitive and gross distortion of reality. For this statement of his, the star was criticized real bad, thus, prompting an apology from him.
In clarification, Salman said to an Indian TV channel:
The interview has been twisted. I saw it myself, the way it is coming across on TV, it is sounding insensitive. I was just saying life is equal for both rich and poor, some attacks get more media coverage and some don’t. Why is that? Every human life is important.
Salman also apologized for his comment.
A terrorist has no nationality, no religion and no guts. I have complete faith in our intelligence agencies. I’ve always had faith in our police and armed forces. I did not want to hurt anybody’s sentiments and if I have hurt anybody’s sentiments then I am really, really sorry,
He also posted a ‘sorry’ message on his Twitter page.
