Salman donates in such a manner that the left hand doesn’t even know that the right hand has done charity. He also pays loads of tax to the government like a responsible citizen. A very significant witness was missing in the court. His name is Kamaal khan. So, when the appeal is made to the higher court, Kamaal Khan’s statement might change tables around.”

                        He is being punished only for his star status. Platform is not for sleeping Women who ruined men of life like Rohtak sisters, Nisha Sharma, wife of Avadesh Yadav who made him commit suicide with false 498A, Drunk girl who made Amity university boys spend a year in jail with false rape case are roaming free. Such a nobel human who has spent most of his earnings in charity is being punished in this country. Where is the justice?

                              A meek sentence of 5 years after a long trial of 13 years! Eventually, when the Judiciary found him guilty of ALL Charges, why did they not sentence him for the full term. I am disappointed in the Judiciary in that it tried to find a balance between his level of punishment and fame by giving a 5 yr sentence instead of 10 years!

                                    Heart to heart many people of this country love Salman Khan than any other Bollywood actor.It was misfortune for him and those injured in accident to meet such situation.It is now a lesson to all car drivers to be more careful while driving a car.Time has come for both Indian judiciary and Govt to do something to deliver justice without delay.

                                          The First Thing is That who told those people to Sleep on the Divider on The Road. Any car can get out of Control and then They blame the driver, Drunk or Not Drunk.Its like saying Hit me .. if you dare.. Those guys are equally at fault. Just because India is a poor country the Judiciary wants to make an example of some big shot and get brownie points from the general Janta.

                                            Court has taken the decision according to law. In a same way lawyer will arrange bail peion for SALMAN. Every Indian knows the pority of SALMAN. Incident always depends on luck . Earnest prayer to The GOD for his earliest bail .
