Sarabjit Singh

"Petty-minded" politics took away the life of Sarabjit Singh, Bollywood filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar and veteran writer Javed Akhtar said, as Hindi film celebrities reacted strongly to the death of the Indian death row prisoner in Pakistan.

Here's what the celebrities posted on Twitter on his death:

Salman Khan: Freedom at last. Hope they give him to his family. We all tried, guess not hard enough. May god give his family strength and his soul rest in peace.

Madhur Bhandarkar: Pakistan should have sent his body earlier to India. Feel sad for Sarabjit Singh's family. For them, the long hopeful wait has come to a sad end. His death will always be a reminder of petty minded politics.

Javed Akhtar: Some day I may forget Kargil, but will never forget Sarabjit's murder. It is an act of extreme meanness by a very petty minded establishment.

Mahesh Bhatt: Sarabjit Singh's death has pushed the Indo-Pak relationship to the brink. The Pakistan civil society needs to push their government to act humanly.

Kunal Kohli: Dear Sarabjit's family. Like the families of Nirbhaya, the beheaded solider, the 5-year-old old raped girl. Your son too will not get justice.

Farhan Akhtar: With Sarabjit's death, Pakistan has painted itself a heartless villain, even in the most forgiving Indian's eye. Unforgettable insensitivity. RIP.

Sophie Choudry: RIP Sarabjit Singh. Strength, prayers and condolences to the family. Hate may have killed him, but red tape let him die.

Sonam Kapoor: I feel betrayed as an Indian.

Aadesh Shrivastava: Sarabjit ki mout ka zimmeydaar Pakistan ke saath saath hamari sarkaar bhi zimmedaar hai..bahut hi dukh ki aur sharm ki baat hai. (Our government is equally responsible just like Pakistan's government for Sarabjit's death. It is a matter of grief of shame.)

Sarabjit Singh died in a Lahore hospital Thursday, a week after being severly beaten up by two fellow inmates in jail. He had been sentenced to death for bomb blasts in Lahore and Multan that left 14 people dead.

Pakistan and India are the same. Exactly the same! Both sides aren't perfect!

Both sides of the media will believe their own story.. Their 'truth'

Same with the government.. 'Their truth' BOTH SIDES ARE CORRUPT AND DO NOTHING!

Whereas we believe what the media tell us ! And where the heck were these celebrities hiding when he was in Pakistan for 22 years !! Why didn't they speak up and try to get him back to India?! Why give an opinion when he's passed away!! :/

No one will fully know the actual truth!

Some people hope that Pakistan and India never become 'friends'

So they do stuff by using media to wind each other up! And look what is happening both sides verbally abusing each other *sigh* on here and other sites ..

when will this end?! When will the blame game stop!

Whereas some want peace like me! I hope and pray for that day!

Hate Kills Humanity!!
Peace x

He crossed borders illegally, he was arrested. If a man is able to drink and cross borders illegally, then he can do anything, he can be a spy or anything. The part that i dont get is how he can be so close to the border farming. Pakistanis arent even allowed to cultivate crops near the border, i dont know why no action was taken against a man who just crossed borders. Do you know about the no mans land region in the border? Can you explain to me how Indian army let him cross the border while we arent even allowed to go near it as pakistanis. He was lucky he wasnt shot at the very moment when he was crossing borders. And he was given a death sentence a long time ago, he wasnt killed, it was his luck, and you yourself said he condessed, i didnt even say that. And yes, ill treatment agr ki hoti to 22 years tak zinda na hota.
A proud pakistani

Sarabjit was taken in place of Manjit Singh who was allegedly involved in the killings.Your own officials had no solid evidence against him.And please he confessed?He was made to take the blame after the series of torture inside your prison.Whoever was responsible for killing those 14 Pakistanis deserved punishement but not an innocent.And if he was guilty why didn't your govt give him a fair trial?
Actually you need to research on this before comparing Kasab and Sarabjit!

The typical mentality of a few people here, we provided kassab with vip security, you should have done same for sarbajit.
Wow guys, did we ever ask you to provide vip security to a killer (or as you say)? Because we dont have double standards.
And magnanimous, our textbooks arent filled with hate, we take things practically, like for instance now. When it came to kassab, everyone wws happy that he was hung. But when it came to sarbajit singh, who killed humans, you people are sad? And then you call us for being two faced, showing our colours and full of hate. You know, we see and we believe.
And also, on what basis are you saying he wasnt a terrorist? The fact that he just claimed from his mouth? He illegaly crossed borders for Gods sake under the influence of alcohol. And you dont need to expect anything from us because you expect somethings from someone you give a crap about. We dont, because two-faces and double standards is a common thing found in indians now,

And krystal, all the people like you, speak keeping in mind the facts that your beloved actors are also speaking about the things happening in india also. And the whole world knows it, how a rapist is given place. How rapist who has destroyed someones life is actually just tried and being tried by the court.
You moron indians should first look down at your nation and accuse others, there would be many things happening in Pakistan at the moment, but we stand up for whats right and whats wrong. And as for the fact if sarbajit was a terrorist, if our government says so, and he was even tried for it in court, then he was. Because theres something known as belief in tour contry and fellows. Something which you wouldnt know about because already, i can see from many comments on this page, that you are nowhere near a better nation.<br/>Meganimous, youve yourself stated he confessed, dont edit it out now. He confessed, he was punished. End of story!
