Superstar Salman Khan has once again triggered a controversy by pitching for peace between India and Pakistan, calling war an insensible move. Sohail Khan comes out in support of Salman Khan.
Salman Khan sparked off a controversy with his statements on war during an interview held in the city. He stated, “People who order war should be asked to go to war themselves. Take this gun and go to war. 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.”
This statement by the superstar did not go well with many and they started slamming him. Many people started off a debate on several news channels and also on social media pages, despite being misquoted by some media houses.
Brother Sohail Khan comes out in support of Salman Khan, says it’s merely a common man’s opinion. 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 concluded by dropping a question, “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’?”
