But Pakistanis appear to be equally interested in Salman’s conviction

 

With many criticizing the Indian legal system and making accusations that Salman was possibly convicted because of his religious background

 

There are those who were pointing out flaws in the Indian legal system

And maybe forgetting the ones back home?

 

Some appreciated that the Indian courts didn’t let him go just because he was a famous person

 

And there were jokes about the poor deer that became Salman’s victim

 

And about the “killing of black bucks”, in general

Black buck = kaala paisa in this context, fyi.

 

Salman Khan is an international celebrity and of course many fans in Pakistan have feelings about the conviction but this is not the end of the drama

The court has given Salman leave to appeal so there’s definitely a chance that the conviction may be overturned or maybe he gets a shortened sentence. What the media is reporting with certainty, though, is that Salman is definitely spending tonight in Jodhpur Central Jail.

 

How do you feel about Salman Khan’s conviction?
