I dont even personally knew Saddam or Osama but I m happy they died. I also want to see GW Bush and Tony Blaire in prison for "crimes against humanity". But this is a BW forum, so Salman is discussed here.
I dont like srk either, I dont want him to go to jail. I just dont watch his movies.
There r many ppl who I dont like... but they dont need to go to jail for the crime they didnt commit.
There r so many victims of driving under influence, many r dead and so many r still grieving, just coz I cant reach out to all of them, doesnt mean I have no say in this matter. When u see news and ur heart cries for the victim (of any crime) and ur head says "this is not acceptable, there should be tougher laws for the culprits" is when U know that U r actually a human being. U dont have to be all powerful to personally put all the assholes of the world in the huge prison, and help out all poor and underprivileged... its a good thought and a fantasy... but its not real. That doesnt mean U put up with all wrongs in the world and shut ur eyes, ears, brains and heart for the wronged ones. It took us centuries from stones age to come to this "civilised" modern world. It wont take that much long togo back where we were centuries back. One major nuclear war would be enough. Yes, we have rights to tell our politicians, dont even think abt nuclear war. Doesnt matter U like or hate that politician on personal level.
Crime is a crime.. not worse or better. It can only be termed bigger or lesser crime. Thats why the court and long hearings. Each case is different. In Salman's case, even after 13 years and being convicted, he is still saying "he wasnt driving, he is innocent". Now, any of his fans on this forum actually believes that, put ur hand up. Just read what coward and remorseful means.
We dont even need to look at his shirt or face, a coward would come out as a coward.. "I didnt do it.. it was my driver from hell". His charity and all the show offs dont matter in that case. He wouldnt have to show his charity balance shit if he truley is 'innocent". I think he has enough muscles to break that witness box.. I would break it if I m convicted a crime I didnt commit.
Look, I know many ppl who dont give a shit abt BW or HW or celebs in general, they were happy that salman got that verdict and disappointed that he got bail in 2 days. They would be totally say the same thing if it was some other person that know his/her name. It could be srk, aamir, hr, abhishek... any1. They r actually more interested in Jaya darling's case. and ashamed she got bail too.
Not evry1 who wants Indian judiciary system to have faster legs and bigger arms.. r salman haters. Hez a superstar and that why the exposure. We can only debate here on which side we r on. Therez nothing much more we can do... but ask ourselves.. is my fanatism bigger than my values I learnt from childhood? Am I wearing tinted glasses that a day looks like night to me? Am i gonna support a celeb blindly even if he commited a crime and keep denying it? drink-driving, reckless, running away leaving injured ppl behind.. to die, full force of wealth and connections to get away with crime, and keep denying it untill the last breath.. as a commitment... those things dont matter to me. What matters is wet dreams of that handsome hunk.
So, its not just abt salman, its abt us. Do we actually care? or just wanna live in la la land? If we r ignorent, we may say.. who gives a shit. But when everything is in front of us and we have rights to chose, what do we chose?
If somebody said to u on this forum ' hope... ur family..." and make u senti to go all out to claim that salman haters want ur family to be... so that hurts doesnt it? That question could have been... "what if.. God forbid.. one of ur loved ones get killed by a drunk driver.. how wud u feel?" Its a hypothetical question.. No, we dont anything bad happen to us our loved ones ever.. but we live in real world.. bad things do happen and we ask ourselves, what if.. its so important to ask that question to ourselves coz the answer will make us wiser. Doesnt have to be a bad thing, we can ask ourselves "what if I win a $30 million lotto?" Its a good to thought to ponder upon..
coz it will tell what ur priorities r in life.
Salman is not charged with other crimes in this particular case.. every case if different. So, its the crime in question. Its not abt how bad he was so n so cases.. neither its abt how good he being human. U can never give good human being a licence to kill innocent. NEVER! and that's a really genuine good family man, who just had an accident coz of distraction, stopped and helped the victim and authorities, and crying his heart out as to what just happened.. reach out to families and appologizing.. ready to serve whatever sentence.. is totally diff. case than that of salman. why? coz one is a human and another is a criminal.
I have said it before...why ask anyone that IF YOUR FAMILY question...why?? Any sensible and empathetic person would ask that question to themselves...and if they can't no amount of questioning can drill sense in them...It is not right IMHO to involve someone's family whom we don't even know...just because they are defending a criminal...everyone can judge right from wrong themselves...just my 2 cents...
