[tps_footer]Salman Khan’s acquittal in the blackbuck poaching case has brought to light many perspectives. The superstar who received immense amount of criticism in the hit and run case is yet again facing blames for the poaching case. The Rajasthan High Court in Jodhpur has acquitted Salman of all charges. The micro-blogging site twitter is filled with hate comments for the Sultan star.
While many have blamed the judiciary for their weak stand on the case, many have also pointed out that laws act differently for celebrities. Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma who is known for his daring opinions has commented saying, “Only celebrity cases make us realise how dead slow judiciary works .it’s scary it took 20yrs for court to decide Salman khan is not guilty.”
On the other hand, actress Renuka Shahane has written a long post about Salman Khan’s blackbuck verdict saying,
“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.”
Renuka in her post adds, “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!!!”
Seems like, after the raped woman comment Salman Khan has again garnered loads of haters![/tps_footer]
