Salman’s clean chit

This is with reference to the article “ >The trial is also about us ”, (Dec. 14.). The clean chit given to Salman Khan by the Bombay High Court on account of lack of evidence exposes the reality of the Indian judiciary. The case has ended more like a Bollywood movie rather than a court trial. The reel-life hero has also become a real-life hero. Ironically, the judgment came on International Human Rights Day. Even more ironically, Khan runs the charitable trust, Being Human.

Many questions arise from this case: for instance, what were the police, the lawyers, and the investigators doing for 13 years? It looks like power and prestige win over justice. I can only hope that some day a film will be made about this and the true face behind the wheel will be revealed to us.

I am baffled by the insensitive posts on social media on the Salman case. Everyone sees this as a failure of justice and as a victory of money and power over the law of the land. Why isn’t anyone respecting the judiciary and its verdict? It is high time media houses exercised restraint and don’t go berserk over one case just for the sake of TRPs.

Shajid Khan,


R.K. Raghavan and D.Sivanandhan have reflected the feelings of millions of Indians in their article, and shown how the law of the land is biased towards the privileged (“The case against Salman Khan,” Dec. 14). They have rightly pointed out that the High Court has failed to deliver justice to the victims whose only “fault” is that they are poor. There is hope that the Maharashtra government will move the Supreme Court and deliver justice to the victims.

N. Ramamurthy,
