PROTESTERS VANDALIZE THEATERS AFTER SALMAN KHAN'S ALLEGED DEROGATRY REMARK AGAINST A CASTE

Salman Khan whose recently released action flick Tiger Zinda Hai is going great at the box office might just have landed in trouble. Well, not just the movie but Salman Khan himself has also gotten in some trouble. Members of Valmiki community projected protests and burns figures of Salman Khan outside theaters in Rajasthan. This not only happened in Rajasthan but also in Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat and many other states. Apparently, the members of Valmiki community are upset with the actor for a derogatory remark made against a particular caste. Valmiki is made up of a cluster of Dalit communities — a few of whom are Bhangi, Mehtar, Chuhra, Lal Beghi and Halalkhor. [caption id="attachment_23575" align="alignnone" width="650"]Salman Khan A still from Tiger Zinda Hai[/caption] Salman was on one of the reality shows to promote his movie Tiger Zinda Hai where he allegedly used the word 'bhangi' while referring to his dancing skills. Along with Salman Khan, Shilpa Shetty has also landed in trouble for using the word to describe how she looks at home. An FIR against both the actors has been filed at a police station in Churu. TOI quoted Rahul Bharat SP of Churu Police Station,

"The FIR has been registered under Prevention of Atrocities Act... We also have included Section 153 A (promoting enmity between different group) of IPC,"
The mobs in different cities have been vandalizing theaters where the movie is being screened. They said that they would not stop until Salman Khan apologies. The National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) has sought a reply from the information and broadcasting ministry and the police commissioners of Delhi and Mumbai over complaints against Salman and Shilpa for allegedly using derogatory language in TV shows.
