Salman Khan has been arrested. Pity, for he was one Bollywood guy who indulged in social causes. Population control for example.
Yesterday, the star was convicted of poaching endangered Indian gazelles – a crime done almost a decade ago. Unfortunately, the watchman of the guest house where Salman stayed during the ‘shoot-out` has also been sentenced to one year RI. What could the poor guy have done? When Salman Khan wanted to shoot a buck …he wanted to shoot a buck. The irony of the whole thing is the watchman would have thought he could make a ‘buck` or two helping out Salman.
Apparently the laws in India are stacked against the human beings. Take for example the Jessica Lal murder case in which all the nine accused are still happy and gay. At this rate, very soon human beings will be endangered. Honest human beings are anyway endangered. Last time I visited a zoo, I saw a sign post “Honest Human Being” and inside the cage was a Khadi clad 80-year-old man.
Salman`s nemesis has finally caught up with him. Or has the media finally caught up with him? He has always been on the wrong side of the media ever since roughing up a few journalists in 2001. The actor did try and argue in the court (not a tennis court, stupid) that he was under the impression that a stunt scene from a movie was being shot, but it didn`t hold water.
Later, he would split up with Aishwarya Rai. Back then Vivek Oberoi was the apple of Aishwarya Rai`s eyes. Last heard, the apple had rotten and the beauty queen had bought a new apple (Abhishek) and kept him in cold storage. Why are we not hearing anything about their impending marriage?
Even if we ignore the recorded conversation between Salman and Aishwarya which rocked the country (Salman went to the extent of saying he knew of the Mumbai blasts before hand), we can`t ignore his Land Cruiser trip which ended with the killing of a few poor, not-so-important people. Some argue on his behalf that he has his own ways of controlling population. A few others say by keeping his shirt on and minding his manners, he can cut down on population.
Coming back to the laws of the land…I think we need somebody as determined as Maneka Gandhi to fight for human beings and their rights
