Mumbai, Sep 13 (Calcutta Tube) Bollywood actor Salman Khan has apologised for his remarks on the 26/11 attack and insists that they were ‘twisted’ and he did not mean to ‘hurt anybody’s sentiments’.
‘The interview has been twisted. I saw it myself, the way it is coming across on TV, it is sounding insensitive. I was just saying life is equal for both rich and poor, some attacks get more media coverage and some don’t. Why is that? Every human life is important,’ Salman, 44, told Aaj Tak news channel.
‘Any attack or terrorist attack in the world is unpardonable. A terrorist has no nationality, no religion and no guts. I have complete faith in our intelligence agencies. I’ve always had faith in our police and armed forces.
‘I did not want to hurt anybody’s sentiments and if I have hurt anybody’s sentiments then I am really, really sorry,’ he added.
Salman invited flak with his comments to a Pakistani TV channel: ‘Too much hype has been created around the 26/11 attacks because elite people were targetted. Attacks have happened in trains and small towns too, but no one talked about it so much.’
He also said: ‘Everybody knows that the Pakistani government was not behind it and it was a terrorist attack. Our security had failed. We have had lot of attacks earlier, and all of them were not from Pakistan. They were from within.’
He later tweeted that henceforth he would record all his interviews to prevent such controversies. He also denounced all terror attacks.
