NEW DELHI: A leader of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Sadhvi Prachi has stirred another controversy by alleging that actor Salman Khan was granted bail in the well-known 2002 hit-and-run case because he is a ‘Muslim’.
Sadhvi Prachi who has once again offered agitating comments said, “Justice would have been granted to the poor victims had Salman Khan not been a Muslim.”
The famous ledaer also demanded the release of Sadhvi Pragya who has been jailed for her involvement in the Malegaon blasts.
Sadhvi Prachi then sought the arrest of Bollywood singer Abhijeet for his posts on Twitter against the street dwellers.
Controversial statements are nothing new for Sadhvi Prachi. Earlier, during a VHP event, Sadhvi had commented that every Hindu woman must deliver four children. However, she later defended her comments explaining that she did nothing wrong by asking Hindu women to give birth to four children as she was not asking them to produce ‘30-40 pups like others’.
Prachi had even declared rewards for Hindu women who agreed with her suggestion and were ready to deliver over four kids.
Salman Khan was granted bail by the High Court on Friday after his sentence of five years imprisonment by Sessions Court in 2002 hit-and-run case was suspended. (Also Read: What was Salman Khan’s first reaction after verdict with fans on Twitter?)
A massive debate on social media erupted and the country was divided into two groups. While some supported the verdict given by the court, the others stood against it.
The incident killed one and left four others injured after the SUV of the actor ran over them while they were asleep on a pavement in September 2002.
