salman khan's movie jai ho

A youth group here has decided to boycott Bollywood star Salman Khan's forthcoming movie "Jai Ho" for taking part in a musical extravaganza in Saifai in Uttar Pradesh.

Members of the Youth Initiative for Peace and Harmony (YIPH) condemned both Salman and Madhuri Dixit for participating in the "Saifai Mahotsav", held in the village of Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav.

The group said it was a pity the actors went to the show when the Uttar Pradesh government was not doing enough for victims of the communal riots in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh.

But the YIPH, however, welcomed the donation of Rs.25 lakh from Salman to the JN Medical College here.

Jasim Mohammad of YIPH told IANS that Mulayam Singh Yadav should not have held the "Safai Mahotsava" this year and Salman and Madhuri Dixit should have not attended it showing "some sensitivity to human values".

Mohammad said the YIPH would boycott the film "Jai Ho".

If they wanna take a stand, they should do it properly and with sincerity. Why take the donation then? Makes them look foolish. Anyways, whoever is at fault, not enough is being done for the victims. It's very sad and something for all to think about.
