The actor's comments have completely backfired...
It isn't known if Salman Khan was aware of what he was getting into when he decided to post a flurry of tweets in support of 1993 serial bombings convict Yakub Memon but it definitely cooked up a storm. While his father Salim Khan slammed his tweets calling them meaningless and ridiculous, others are not letting it slide so easily. If BJP MP Kirit Somaiya wants Salman to apologise to the nation, common men are out shaming his recently released film Bajrangi Bhaijaan's posters.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan is the 200 crore winning bonanza of the box office this year and till recently, it was getting garlanded since it was Bhai's film. One tweet in support of Yakub Memon by him tarnished its image as well. In Satara, Maharashtra, the movie posters were defaced for the same reason. It is a sensitive topic and by commenting on it Salman has sparked up a debate which won't subside anytime soon.
Guess that's the reason why the security has been beefed up outside his house fearing any backlash. Shiv Sena apparently has threatened to protest against the star for his tweets which clearly says that he would rather have Tiger Memon hanged than Yakub Memon.
We don't know what led Salman to put up such tweets which is working against him. It's yet to be seen what the actor responds in relation to the angry quotes against him.
