Actor Salman Khan has spoken in favour of Pakistan as the tension has increased in Kashmir. He said those who demand wars should be sent to the border to end the warmongering.
“Those who order wars should be sent to the forefront and be told that you fight first. Their hands and feet will tremble. The war will be over in a day. Then they will sit across the table and talk,” Salman Khan said at a press conference while promoting his new film Tubelight.
Salman Khan further went on to say, “Whenever there is war, people die on both sides of the border.”
Soon after Salman’s press conference, Shiv Sena hit out against him saying the star Bollywood actor had “crossed his boundaries”.
“The way he has said this is really objectionable. Who doesn’t want peace. Why does he always cross his boundaries,” Sena MP Arvind Sawant said. Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha told that “Salman Khan’s statement batting for peace between India and Pakistan was a “sane, sensitive and mature one”.
NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik dismissed Khan’s remarks, saying it was all just a publicity stunt by the actor just before the release of his film which was set against the India-China war.
Salman’s father Salim Khan said, “This is what every great person in history has said .. war is not a sensible thing.”
