Salman Khan’s youth is full of mistakes he regrets till date. These are not merely drunk dialing an ex kind of mistakes, they’re huge. Recently he was acquitted for the hit and run case where he was acquitted saying he wasn’t the one driving the car (he totally was, but). Yesterday, the Rajasthan High Court acquitted him in the poaching case where he alleged was involved in hunting blackbuck, chinkara. While the government may have forgiven him, Twitter never spares anyone. Trending on Twitter as Salman Khan Poaching Case Verdict, nobody shied away from giving their opinions regarding the verdict. Bhai fans were rejoicing over the fact that their God was finally free in the eyes of law. Sensible others pointed out how the judicial system of India needs help desperately. Co-actors like Renuka who have shared screen space with Salman lashed out through her Facebook post against the verdict. With all of this going around about him, we’re pretty sure Salman is having biryani and a bash. Different reactions to Salman Khan’s verdict –
While some clearly states how the Indian judicial system proved once again that it has been impartial towards celebrities and people with status…
Some chose to convey their feelings through jokes…
And some chose to be completely ignorant and rejoiced over the fact that their beloved Bhai can walk freely.
Renuka Shahane, Salman’s co-star in Hum Aapke Hain Kaun resorted to Facebook to share her thoughts regarding the acquittal. While most celebrities have chosen to remain quiet on the issue, it was good to see someone taking a stand. Here’s what she posted on her Facebook page –
“In 1998 a Black Buck & 2 Chinkaras (that are endangered species & therefore cannot be killed) were allegedly killed on a hunting trip that included Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Amrita Singh, Tabu & Sonali Bendre. Somehow while the ‘mor’ was ‘naaching’ in their ‘hivdas’ they wanted to shoot some endangered animals. And they did & ate them too. But did they? Out of all only Salman was charged for killing a black buck & a chinkara. He also served time for the same in Jodhpur jail. No charges were framed against the others. The case carried on & on & on as our cases do for two main reasons 1) Having big bucks (sometimes even black bucks….different from the Black Buck who passed) or 2) Not having big bucks. Salman of course falls in the 1st category of big bucks ( I don’t know their colour & we should not be racist by commenting) So now after 18 years he has been acquitted of charges in both cases. Some questions come to mind 1) Who killed the Black Buck & the Chinkaras? 2) Did the driver kill them? 3) Did nobody kill them? 4) Do judges decide according to Buckworth-Lewis method? ( What? Er…it’s Duckworth-Lewis?) Sorry! 4) Who will pay for the mental torture that Salman has had to go through now that he has been declared not guilty? 5) Doesn’t the nation want to know the truth? ( preferably very loudly) What? The nation doesnt want to know? No? Why? Oh you don’t say…..busy spending bucks on Sultan….Er….then let it pass….yeah the Buck, what else? Dear, deer! Surreal!!!”
Judicial system shocks, Bhai rocks!
