Salman Khan, it is said that he is a human being with a heart of gold but what use is this heart of gold when he’s subjected to a trial for poaching? And since the verdict is now out, with Khan convicted to 5 years in prison for the poaching of a rare specie of black bucks, already near extinction, it seems the decision isn’t really going down well with his fans around the world.
Some feel that judgement delayed is a flawed judgement. Some think Khan is punished because he is Muslim. Various celebrities, including Jaya Bachan, Shilpa Shinde spoke out against the judgement. Also celebs on this side of the border too are siding up with Salman Khan, speaking out in his support.
Taking to her Twitter the younger of the Hocane sisters, Mawra Hocane, tweeted and expressed her support for the Bollywood actor. “In a world with no “NO” human rights, a great human being is being punished for killing an animal umpteen years ago under animal rights.” She further added “Bash me all you want, but there’s something completely wrong about it.. mind you such human beings are our saving grace!”

Well it seems that some people are not happy with her thoughts and as expected, Mawra has come under the line of fire.
Are u out of ur mind?
The same man has been involved in hit & run incident that resulted in death & he has also beaten up a woman & threatened female journos.
He isnt our saving grace, he is an example of everything that’s wrong with today’s society.

Yes… Because killing that animal was a criminal offense… Also, this great human being bought his freedom after killing an innocent human being in a hit and run case….

Even Ushna Shah doesn’t agree with what Mawra had to say
Hundreds of God’s creatures have faced extinction at the hands of humans hunting for trophies, the white rhino only recently. Everyone, no matter how benevolent a producer, ought to be accountable for their actions. Gratitude shouldn’t conflict with principle.
