Bollywood actor Salman Khan said he is both Hindu and Muslim

  • Published in Entertainment
Bollywood actor Salman Khan on Wednesday said that he has no religion and that he is both a Hindu and a Muslim.

The actor had come to record his statement in a case under the Arms Act.

When the magistrate asked what is his caste Salman said, "I am an Indian." Then the judge said, "There is a column which needs to be filled so you will have to tell." To which Salman said, "I am both Hindu and Muslim. My father is a Muslim and mother is Hindu."

Salman Khan and a few other Bollywood stars were accused of poaching blackbucks on the midnight of Oct 1-2, 1998 during the shooting of a movie Hum Saath Saath Hain.

Two blackbucks, a protected animal under the Wildlife Protection Act, were killed on the outskirts of Kankani village near Jodhpur.

Khan is accused of carrying and using illegal arms. He is also alleged to have been carrying arms with an expired license.

The chief judicial magistrate had asked Khan to appear before the court for recording of his statement on April 23, but he did not come due to infection in his ear.
