THOUSANDS OF Bishnois living in Abohar and Fazilka area of Punjab expressed satisfaction over the conviction of actor Salman Khan by a Jodhpur court on Thursday.

Bishnoi community in Abohar takes care of India’s only private wildlife sanctuary spread in 186 square km area in 13 villages of Punjab.

RD Bishnoi, president of All India Jeev Raksha Bishnoi Mahasabha, said, “We express happiness over the court’s decision regarding conviction of Salman Khan, which shows that no one is above court. Our Mahasabha members from Abohar had gone in large numbers to Jodhpur regarding the proceedings of the case and it is the unity of the Mahasabha that this case has led to a decision of a star being convicted. However, we condemn acquittal of the rest of the film stars in the case. Our fight will continue if Salman approaches a higher court.”
