Superstar Salman Khan is once again caught in a controversy as a section of Muslim clerics have appealed the community to boycott actor Salman Khan’s movies for praising Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. They have also asked the community members to boycott the products that are being endorsed by the actor. The reason being Salman Khan’s statement while praising Modi that there was no need for the CM to apologize for the 2002 riots as the judiciary had given him a clean chit.
According to sources, Maulana Ejaz Kashmiri, a member of the All India Ulema Council and an Imam at a mosque in Bhendi Bazaar said, “Salman’s statement that there is no need for Modi to say sorry for the 2002 riots is provocative and deplorable. It has hurt the sentiments of Muslims and the community should boycott the actor’s present and future films and the products he endorses unless he apologizes.”
