Farah Ali Khan apologises for tweets on Salman verdict
Mumbai: Days after courting controversy for her tweets targeting the homeless in connection to the verdict given to Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, jewellery designer Farah Ali Khan has apologised for her comments.
Salman was pronounced guilty in the 2002 hit-and-run case on Wednesday and Farah had taken to twitter to criticise the judgement and also drew analogies between people sleeping on the footpath and people crossing the railway tracks.
Farah was slammed on the social media by users as well as few Bollywood celebrities for her insensitivity and she today apologised via the micro-blogging site.
“For each life is precious, be it anyone. Lives are lives and it is our duty as citizens to protect another life collectively as a society… And so, I would like to offer an UNCONDITIONAL apology for my tweets ref the homeless sleeping on the streets,” Farah posted on twitter today.
Bombay High Court has suspended 49-year-old Salman’s five-year sentence in the hit-and-run case.
