While people are busy loading their deities with gallons of milk or kilos of gold, our Conventional deity Sallu Bhai walks the street, not scot free but bail-free !
While the empty cellars in his name lament the loss of their God,
citizens and netizens are rejoicing in the street for the not-so-human God that now walks among them.
His Bhaktjans are now facing ire of the people for their comments. Abhijeet shot straight to the Lame-light with his dog and pauper analogy. So much for Sallu-worship !
My would-be-lawyer friend laments jumping the gun by celebrating the conviction of Bhaijaan, since he was immediately released on bail.
Dont let my rant make you believe I have any grudge against Salman Khan.
I hold nothing against him. But law must be equal for everybody irrespective of their position and status. This sounds more of a mere ‘ideal situation’ for our country,a figment of my tired imagination.
Money can buy you a lot of things, preference in court being one of those ! Thousands of cases lie languishing in despair between clustered files in a dusty corner , and our judiciary takes more than a decade for a hit and run case. All the glaring evidence and yet the accused walks free. It is indisputable that Salman has done a lot for the people of this country. He has lent a helping hand, a shoulder to thousands through his charity. Nonetheless, it cant acquit him in a case. Comparing his crime to his charitability does nothing to lessen his crime. They are two separate mono-identities of one person.
I believe Salman has made a mistake, and he must pay the price. I admire him for his charity and his charm,
but undoubtedly our Dabangg Deity needs to step down and be a mortal man who has erred.
