Salman's apology on 26/11 remarks pleases Sena

Bal Thackeray
Mumbai, Sep 14: Evidently appeased by Salman Khan's apology over his contentious remarks on 26/11, Shiv Sena on Tuesday, Sep 14 said that there was not reason to nurse hatred against the Bollywood star as his family was truly patriotic.

In the latest editorial in party mouth piece Saamna, Sena supremo Bal Thackaray said, "There is no reason for us to harbour anger against Salman. His family is nationalist and patriotic in true sense.

"Salman apologised after the furore in the country (over his remarks). He must have realised that the furore was not by the rich but by the common masses."

"Salman's family is patriotic and it is with this responsibility that he should speak and avoid talking on anything but movies," the editorial added.

Besides taking a latent swipe that Salman over his remarks that the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks were over hyped due to the fact that the elite were targeted, the editorial said that it was good that the actor was not adamant like Shah Rukh Khan.

Shah Rukh Khan had earlier angered the Shiv Sena for remarks favouring inclusion of Pakistani players in Indian Premier League.
