New Delhi, July 26: Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam has expressed disappointment that Salman Khan has retracted his controversial tweet on 1993 Mumbai terror blasts convict Yakub Memon, but he doesn’t regret his remark.
Ujjwal Nikam reportedly said: “I am disappointed with Salman’s withdrawal tweet. I have seen two kinds of people. The first one consisting of people who accepts that they have wronged and realize that and are repentant. Making mistakes is a human nature and is only done by common men.”
“But the second category consists of people who realize they have made a mistake but don’t regret it and adamantly sticks to their statement. Salman belongs to this second category,” Nikam added.
The Special Public Prosecutor said: “He (Salman) said that his father said that’s why he is withdrawing his statement. Don’t you have any repentance? I respect his father because his father frankly said it. Why is he taking his father’s support? He is doing this because he still isn’t ready to accept that he has made a mistake. This is a very shameful thing.”
He further pointed out: “Thus, Salman should now withdraw his whole statement about innocent person getting hanged because this message will reach to his fandom that Salman bhai is saying and this bhaijaan is saying that this person is innocent. This is just a baseless statement. I want him to feel guilty.”
Earlier on Sunday, Salman Khan took it to his Twitter page to say “my dad called and said I should retract my tweets as they have the potential to create misunderstanding. I hereby retract them. I would like to unconditionally apologise for any misunderstanding I may have created unintentionally.”
He further added: “I also strongly condemn those who are claiming my tweets are anti religious. I have always said I respect all faiths and I always will.”
