Salman Khan got bail beacuse he is a Muslim: Sadhvi Prachi

BJP MP and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Sadhvi Prachi courted controversy once again by alleging that Salman Khan got bail in the infamous 2002 hit-and-run-case because he is a Muslim.


“Had Salman Khan not been a Muslim, justice would have been granted to poor victims,” Sadhvi Prachi said. The BJP leader has also demanded release of Sadhvi Pragya, who is in jail for her involvement in the Malegaon blasts.

She has even demanded that Bollywood singer Abhijeet should be arrested for his tweets against street dwellers.

This is not the first time when Sadhvi Prachi has given any such controversial statement. Earlier, Sadhvi Prachi at a VHP event had said that every Hindu woman must give birth to four children. She later defended her comments by saying that she had done no wrong by asking Hindu women to give birth to four children as she was not asking them to produce “30-40 pups like others”.

She had even announced rewards for all Hindu women who agree with her and give birth to more than four children.

The Bombay High Court on Friday suspended Salman Khan’s sentence and granted him bail. A huge social media debate had erupt after a trial court on Wednesday awarded a five-year jail sentence to Khan.

A man was killed and four others were left wounded after the Bollywood stars Toyota Land Cruiser ran over them while they were asleep on a pavement in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002.
