Convicted finally

Killing of blackbucks, vehicular homicide, abusing ex-GFs, having connections with organized crime syndicate — publicly noticed offenses by Salman Khan. He recently got convicted for one of the above list of crimes. Guess which one – killing of blackbucks.

Weird, isn’t it? In a land where cases like Jesicca Lal murder are still dragging their feet; where witnesses turn hostile, sometimes for threats, sometimes for a paltry some of money. It was the Bishnois that made all the difference. No threat or bribe could turn them hostile. Their love for nature was that strong.

I wish every wild life sanctuary in India had its own Bishnois. But that’s too much to ask for, I know.
