With Salman Khan’s conviction by a Jodhpur court today in the blackbuck poaching case, many have risen in support of the icon- including Pakistan foreign minister Khawaja Asif.

Khawaja Asif has come out with a rather uncanny rationale behind Salman Khan’s conviction by attributing his fate to his religion. He said that ‘Khan was sentenced because he is a minority’. The Bollywood actor has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Speaking at Pakistan media channel Geo TV’s news programme called Capital Talk, the foreign minister slammed the verdict against the Bollywood icon and reasoned, “Salman Khan has been sentenced because he is a minority.”

Khawaja Asif was in conversation with Geo TV’s news anchor Hamid Mir, when he made the statement.

He further added, “To sentence him in a case that is twenty years old goes on to show that lives of those who are Muslims, ‘untouchables’ or Christians are not valued in India,”

In a blatant attack on India’s ruling party and its alleged tool of politics, Khawaja Asif added, “May be if he belonged to the religion of the ruling party of India he would not have been given such a harsh sentence and the court might have been lenient with him.”

Salman Khan was found guilty today of killing two blackbucks on the intervening night of October 1-2, 1998 in the Kankani village near Jodhpur in Rajasthan.

In addition to a five year jail term, the Bollywood star has also been slapped with a fine of Rs 10,000.

The other accused in the case – Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre, Neelam – and a local named Dushyant Singh have been acquitted in the case. They were in Rajasthan for the shoot of Hum Saath Saath Hain when the incident took place.

If he would have known who his neighbour is in jail, he would have spared himself from the oncoming troll storm. But fact checking is an unknown concept to a Pakistani whether he or she is common Pakistani or even their Foreign Minister. I think being factually correct is not even the 10th agenda in their list of protocols their chief diplomat i.e their Foreign Minister needs to follow. Shame.

Personally I don't like the judgement , it is better if he is convicted for six months imprisonment and 100 crores and these money should be used for the betterment of these species like black deer, rhinoceros, tiger etc

Even Sanjay Dutt while addressing a rally with SP's Azam Khan in UP elections claimed that he was jailed because his mother was from minority.
