Two days after being held guilty of killing two blackbucks in Jodhpur during the shooting of his movie in 1998, Salman Khan has been granted bail in the case. He walked out of the Jodhpur Central Jail on April 7 evening and will head straight to his home in Mumbai.
The Bishnois had filed a case against the Salman Khan and his co-actors Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam Kothari and Tabu. However, the court acquitted all others except Salman for the lack of evidence.
The court’s judgment invited hilarious memes on social media as well as reactions from his peers in the film industry. Many actors came up in Salman’s support and showed concern for him. Take a look at some tweets from Bollywood stars below:

The law takes its course. Can’t argue it. But at this point in time I just feel helpless and my heart goes out to @BeingSalmanKhan and his family. Reason, cause the last thing @BeingSalmanKhan is, is a criminal.I feel this is too harsh. I do hope he gets the relief he deserves.

How many tigers have been poached and what’s the status of Justice on that.
How many jungles have been cut down in the name of development, isn’t it leading to wildlife killing.
Punishing a good human being is not acceptable https://t.co/dBtc3tuM34

However, Salman received support from across the border too.
Expressing her concern over Salman’s conviction and punishment, Mawra Hocane took to Twitter and wrote that there is “something completely wrong about it”. Take a look at her tweet below:
In a world with no “NO” human rights, a great human being is being punished for killing an animal umpteen years ago under animal rights. Bash me all you want, but there’s something completely wrong about it.. mind you such human beings are our saving grace! #SalmanKhanVerdict

Mawra Hocane’s tweet invited reactions from both sides of the border and she has been bashed big time for her tweet. Twitterati reminded her that Salman Khan was also accused in a hit and run case in which he had killed humans while some opined that she should have supported her country on the issue of Kashmir the way Shahid Afridi did. Some social media users even said that she has supported Salman to get work from him.

Are u out of ur mind?
The same man has been involved in hit & run incident that resulted in death & he has also beaten up a woman & threatened female journos.
He isnt our saving grace, he is an example of everything that’s wrong with today’s society.
