Sohail Khan defends brother Salman over his anti-war comment.
When Salman Khan is not acting in movies or promoting them, he is commenting on topics that are bound to spark controversies. On keen observation, it seems Salman is followed by controversies everywhere even if he doesn’t intend to start any. Recently, Salman again made headlines for his views on war.
He reportedly said, “War is not a sensible move. Nobody benefits from a war. People who order war should be given guns and made to fight. Within a day, all conflicts will get over as their legs will start shaking. In war, the armies of both sides lose their lives. Families lose their sons/fathers. They have to live their whole lives without them.” The mid-day reported that Khan’s comment has not been taken well by many people around the nation. His attitude about speaking his mind has once again created a rift between many people and also resulted in debates on various news channels and also on social media pages. The Sultan actor has also been misquoted by some media houses.
Sohail Khan, when questioned about this issue was heard saying, ”A lot of importance is given to actors’ comments on such issues. I am not sure if people from this industry have the knowledge to talk about politics with such depth. What Salman Bhai – or any actor for that matter – says, is his opinion as a common man, a mere civilian.”
Ask people about war, and anyone would say it’s bad. That’s exactly what he said as well. War anywhere, in any part of the world, be it Syria, India, Iraq, China, cannot be a good thing,” the actor-filmmaker told mid-day, a daily newspaper.
Sohail also said, “I wouldn’t understand the psyche of anyone who says war is a good thing. Dialogue, debate, discussions have proven to go a long way in mending relations, without our jawans going to the front and losing lives. Sadly, we don’t always know why these things happen and how they happen. Lack of knowledge from our side often downplays our intentions. We don’t have the authority to say things or the right to stop things. So, all we can do is lament.”
Sohail feels a dialogue, not war, can help put an end to the hostility between the two countries. “We all think about it. But when you voice it, there is a contradictory viewpoint. But isn’t that the reason we make a film like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ (2015) or ‘Tubelight’?” he questioned.
