Salman Khan, the Superstar is in news
once again, for not so good reasons. He
has been sentenced to 5-years
imprisonment after he was found
culpable of killing a man in a 2002 hit-
and-run case after a night out
drinking. Four other men were injured
in the accident. Judge DW Deshpande
found Salman Khan guilty for crashing
his vehicle while being drunk on
homeless men sleeping on the road
side and then fleeing the accident
scene. The judge stated that Salman
was driving car under the influence of
alcohol and without a license. The
debate is going all over the world as to
Should Salman Khan Be Imprisoned?

Yes
• It is verified that the alcohol intake
was more than the set limit, clearly
dumping the tyre burst explanation.
Such rash cases cannot be ignored.
• The court even stated that Salman
Khan didn’t bother to provide any form
of medical aid to injured people. Such
an act cannot be termed as being
human.
• Just because he is an actor or a much
admired star doesn’t gives him
privilege to get mercy for his wrong
doings from court.
• Salman Khan claimed that Ashok
Singh was driving the car. It appears
that his way of doing charity is by
trapping innocent people.
• As per the report, Salman Khan
didn’t even have a legal driving license
in 2002.He got a license in 2004.
• Salman Khan ran away from the spot
without informing about the accident
to police officials. If his driver was on
driver’s seat, why didn’t he try to
contact police officials and take their
help?
• It would send a wrong message to
society to start doing charitable acts
along with bad deeds so that they can
escape their wrong doings.

No
• It is true that Salman Khan was at
fault, but it is also true that he has
performed several charity works in
last thirteen years, highlighting a
significant change in him. If the good
deeds outperform bad, a second
chance is warranted,
• Still there is a lot more confusion as
on who was driving the car. Moreover,
Kamal Khan is missing in entire case
proceedings.
• Salman Khan would go to jail but
what about the producers who have
invested their money in Salman’s
upcoming films. Over Rs 200 crores are
on stake.
• Punishment is not a solution to
problem. Instead the court should
make him meet the expenses of
injured families on monthly basis.

Conclusion
It is not a barter trade going on that
kill people and then start doing charity
to hide misdeeds. As of now, it seems
the case as fans and supporters of
Salman Khan ask for mercy. However,
they have forgotten that he already
received star benefits. If anyone else
has been there at place of Salman, he
would have been punished thirteen
years back. So, instead of cribbing they
should be happy that Salman
managed to get out of problem at a
cost of just five years of his life. Just a
little reminder, Compensation and
Punishment are two different words!!
