Salman Khan condemns Sarabjit Singh’s death

Sonam Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar and other Bollywood stars also tweeted about the sad demise of the Indian death row prisoner in Pakistan

Bollywood star Salman Khan, who had launched an online petition asking for Sarabjit Singh‘s freedom in 2012, Thursday mourned the death of Indian death row prisoner Sarabjit Singh in Pakistan. “Freedom at last. Hope they give him to his family. We all tried, guess not hard enough. May god give his family strength and his soul rests in peace,” Salman posted on Twitter.

Last year, Salman urged his fans and the public to join an online petition that he planned to give to the Pakistan government in a bid to free Sarabjit, who was comatose since April 26 after being savagely attacked by fellow prisoners at the Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore Sarabjit passed away early Thursday in a city hospital. He had spent over 20 years in jail and was sentenced to death for the Lahore and Multan bomb blasts that left 14 people dead.

Here’s what Bollywood celebrities posted on Twitter on Sarabjit’s death:

Salman Khan: Freedom at last. Hope they give him to his family. We all tried, guess not hard enough. May god give his family strength and his soul rest in peace.

Sonam Kapoor: I feel betrayed as an Indian.

Farhan Akhtar: With Sarabjit’s death, Pakistan has painted itself a heartless villain, even in the most forgiving Indian’s eye. Unforgettable insensitivity. RIP.

Madhur Bhandarkar: Pakistan should have sent his body earlier to India. Feel sad for Sarabjit Singh’s family. For them, the long hopeful wait has come to a sad end. His death will always be a reminder of petty minded politics.

Javed Akhtar: Some day I may forget Kargil, but will never forget Sarabjit’s murder. It is an act of extreme meanness by a very petty minded establishment.

Mahesh Bhatt: Sarabjit Singh’s death has pushed the Indo-Pak relationship to the brink. The Pakistan civil society needs to push their government to act humanly.

Kunal Kohli: Dear Sarabjit’s family. Like the families of Nirbhaya, the beheaded solider, the 5-year-old old raped girl. Your son too will not get justice.

Sophie Choudry: RIP Sarabjit Singh. Strength, prayers and condolences to the family. Hate may have killed him, but red tape let him die.

Aadesh Shrivastava: Sarabjit ki mout ka zimmeydaar Pakistan ke saath saath hamari sarkaar bhi zimmedaar hai..bahut hi dukh ki aur sharm ki baat hai. (Our government is equally responsible just like Pakistan’s government for Sarabjit’s death. It is a matter of grief of shame.)

Rest in peace, Sarabjit Singh.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    I would like to tell those ignorant basturds bollywood actors and actresses that “come out of your dreaming full of filth holes open your damn eyes and see how many innocent people sarabjit have killed…and if you can’t see then ask and search for the truh which im sure you people will never do”

    Did you really get a salary hike in 2013? According to Aon Hewitt Indian workers in 2013 will get an average raise of 10.3% with some sectors more than the others. The average CPI (consumer price index) that measures inflation is 11.84% for the year 2013, which means that your salaries have shrunk, instead of growing. How did that happen – this is the culmination of 9 years of Congress misrule, growth has slowed and corruption has increased.

    The time to make change is now. Choose Growth Choose Narendra Modi. Follow Shri. Narendra Modi on twitter @narendramodi. #NaMo4PM #NaMoForce
