Hello. Well i haven't seen anyone who made fun of any national hero here. What Salim Khan said is difficult to digest but its anyhiw a bitter truth. Now a days, movies are promoting national heroes more than anyone else. See sarabjit, and i am sure some oeople will have no idea who Sarabjit was. I dont think Salim Khan is that dumb who will critcize and post against his own national hero infront of everyone. And TM got involved because she questioned someone's general knowledge which was personal.. zahir he personal jaye gi tou aesa hi response mile ga

@bold - Well you are late to the party. Yesterday's thread was full of mocking for Yogeshvar Dutt and Singh. 

I knew about Sarabjit before movie came. 

You need to understand one thing, if there are people who don't know about these people, Then there are another lot who knows about these people. And that is why movies are even being made on them. 

Why BW is after Biopics these days, coz they are true stories. Some of them already popular. 

Mary Kom as a movie was poorly made. Yet audience went to watch. Coz there was enough hype around Mary Kom. 


It is a 2 way street. BW is also getting benefited coz of real heroes. So, BW is not doing any favor.

Salim's tone was insulting. He meant to say, BW did a favor to Milkha. In no way, BW did any favor to Milkha. And people can criticize Salim for his words. Some members here need to chill and not take everything to heart. LOL. Not like Salim is your father or something.

But the strange thing is some salman fans who are staying in india pretending to not know Milkha singh in order to defend salman's father.Shocked

There are also people outside India who don't know Salman. Fact too. We are a pretty populated Planet.LOL

The reason given for his appointment be to spread awareness of Olympics in India. Not outside. Global Event worldwide. Indian media runs coverage every day , newspapers buzz up. Big deal even if we win handful medals. 

It took one young girl Dipla to put Indian Gymnastics on world map. No Salman endorsement could do that to her, what her own hard work did. Embarrassed

Another fact- Dhyan Chand , some here might not know him but a tube station is named after him . There is a statue in Vienna in his honor..Germany , Netherland ..way too honoured. But I am sure many here won't know of him. Just like plenty in those countries won't know Salman.Embarrassed

May be they think he is going to promote it worldwide WinkLOL ... Their GK Embarrassed

Stars with black money become Indian ambassador and stars with criminal records become olympics ambassador. I feel so bad that I am living in such a country where people like Salman are blindly worshipped why not virat kohli/ Dhoni for olympics they can help other sports in the country to get more publicity. Making Salman as brand ambassador is just a promotional strategy and a let down

Im also an NRI. I spent all my life abroad. I dont even support team india in general but all good sportsmen. Pleading ignorance is like telling the cop you dont know how much was the speed limit. If these people who are living abroad, came to learn about Salman and know everything he does then perhaps they should do the same and do their own due dilligence or a little research instead of harrassing some 87 year old icon who is of their grandfathers age.
That's how most of the NRIs are(not all).Just yesterday I read one member asking is Jaipur really pink?He/she is curious to know about Jaipur but doesn't want to do research on the city.And then that member blurted out the most favorite line of some NRIs since last few years,"India is not safe for women."DeadAngry
That's why I said that there are NRIs who have such limited knowledge about India,of course not all.But u will find lot of such ignorant NRIs in this forum.

I am asking Who is he? I have no idea who Mikha Singh is? Doesn't mean i am comparing him with khet ki mooli? People here are best known in exaggerating things nothing else. I already said its salim khan thats why this reaction is coming.

Have you seen me asking who is Salim Khan? No. Even If I dont know him well or havent seen much of his work I know that he must be something before Salman Khan happened. But people are blasting Yogeshwar and Milkha and trying to question their achievements just because they are speaking against their Almighty Salman. These guys brought pride having represented India. They are not some sadakchaap goonda doing nautankis for 25 50 rupee ki tickets.
Here, you are comparing two different fields. National heroes are nowhere near to celebrities.. they have more respect. If someone asked for Mikha Singh achievement then what is wrong about it? Who is national hero btw? Someone who has represented a country in a positive way around the work and gained popularity and even died for a country right? What are the Mikha singh achievements that have made him a national hero? I want to know about it as i dont know about Mikha singh. How I am questioning his achievements by this mean? Confused similarly, no one here questioned about his achievements..


Nothing Much. Just a chapter on him as part of school curriculum in his country. 

A little summary. 

4 Gold Medals  in Asian Games. Many in CWG. 

He was 4th in Olympics won't matter to you but The Independent mentioned him as "India's most revered Olympian is a gallant loser" because of how he fought wearing poor gear during his race.

He for long has been the sole representative of athletes in India, decades . Was/is an inspiration for the likes of PT Usha . 

For a country which has had no representation in track and field for decades , he has been a symbol of hope and pride. Hence a National Hero.

That is the problem in this forum.Half of the members aren't from India and think if they don't know a particular person, it means he/she is not known in India as well.Have been witnessing such lack of awareness amongst vi'desis' from a long time.LOL

And what was so insulting that Milkha Singh said that papaji became so angry? Even the international olympics committee would know more about Milkha Singh and Abhinav Bindra than Salman Khan! This is not a desi event that you need to thrust Bollywood stars on everyone's face!

with ALL the due respect even i dont know who is mika singh until a movie on him released !! most of the people ,who show interest in movies doesnt have knowledge in sports !! it doesnt mean salim has to be bashed !!
Why dont you accept you dont have enough general knowledge? You should have remember who Mikha Singh is. Not only Mikha Singh but his father, mother, bro, sis, wife(ves), children, chacha, chachi, mama, mami every one.. that will increase your general knowledge that is what TM is trying to say actually..LOL not only this, she is expecting you to remember each and every syllabus that you have gone through in your school days.

Mr Penta , as I know u respect me so much , have seen ur rangeeli language many times specially for women ... 

As far as ur comment ... No , they don't need to know abt his whole family but they need to Respect the person who has achieved so much for the country , if they don't know abt him when they are Indian then it's their loss , shameful that they don't know a legend of their own country 


Btw I don't expect Pakistani text books to teach abt MiLkha Singh so no wonder some Pakistanis who have less GK don't know him , same way today's Indian Gen, who doesn't care much abt GK, don't think beyond fashion and BW/HW, have no idea who Jinnah was ... 
Wow Minnie replied me finally.. mere tou bhaag hi khul gayeLOL

Coming to the point, what makes you think that people here made fun of Milkha Singh? Just because some body asked for his contributions, does he critcized him? Every body respects national heroes and if someone be it Pakistani or Indian doesn't know about their national heroes, how it become shameful? There are lots of people in every profession like army, athletics/sports,  politics etc who represents a country around the world no less than as compared to national heroes, how can someone should remember about each and everyone? How many national heroes of India do you remember? there must be alot do you know everyone? Do you know about their contrubutions? I dont remember so many of my national heroes does it make me unpatriotic towards my country? Hell no. All that matter is we should respect them thats it. And here no body disrespected any national hero.

I kinda agree with you. Though I don't entirely blame them. Most of them born outside, They juggle between 2 cultures. Must be difficult. 

But they should at least not have condescending tone for India or Indians while discussing. 

If tomorrow, my Kid doesn't know about India or some Indians, I would at least teach him/her to be respectful since he/she is talking about his/her parents' country. Approve warna padegi 2 jhaapad. LOL
