Salman Apologizes For His 26/11 Attacks Comments
Salman Khan in an interview with a Pakistani TV channel said that the 26/11 attacks targeted the rich and influential people only and hence they were widely noticed and discussed. Thereafter, it lead to some intense political reactions. Pertaining to the situation, now Salman has apologized for the same.
Salman had said about the attacks, “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."The political parties termed his statements as ‘unwarranted and irresponsible’ and made ‘no sense’.
Public Prosecutor Ujjawal Nikam said, "If Salman is making such a statement without knowing the details of the case, it is foolish. Terrorists do not strike after differentiating rich from the poor nor do they differentiate a village from a city. The attack has wide ramifications as it killed many people and because the conspiracy was allegedly hatched in Pakistan."
Janata Party (BJP) general secretary Atul Bhatalkar said, “Most political parties have always taken note of attacks, be it the terror attacks in 2008 or the 1993 blasts or the Malegaon bomb blasts. What Salman has said is totally out of context.”
Now handling the situation further, he mentions on twitter, “Looks like I might have to get off twitter. Don't want to but what to do? I think I messed up, so sorry guys, $sorry bolne mein koi sharam nahi."
He continues, "Every human life has equal value n any act of terror, anywhere in the world is unpardonable. Be it 9/11 or 26/11."
But he also mentioned that his statements are twisted in a negative way and from next time he would record all his comments, so that no controversy arises.
He adds, "Next time mein apnne sub interview sub khud bhi record karoonga , kya bolte ho ? Takeh yeh sub controversies nahi ho."
Even his dad Salim and brother Arbaz took his side and said that there was no bad intention behind his statements and they requested the political parties to understand the intent behind his acts.
