Salim Khan, acclaimed Indian director and the father of megastar Salman Khan, has come forth giving his two cents on Indian top court’s verdict pertaining to the Babri Mosque, saying Muslims don’t need a place of worship.
The famed scriptwriter, in his media talk, stated that rather than building the mosque on the site allocated by the Indian Supreme Court, a school should be constructed.
Hailing the verdict, he said it was historic and Muslims should move on.
He further added that two virtues of Islam as described by the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) are love and forgiveness. “So now after ‘The-End’ of this story [Ayodhya dispute], Muslims should adhere to these two virtues and march forward.”
“The manner in which peace and harmony is being maintained, after the announcement of such a sensitive verdict, is commendable. Let’s accept…a very old dispute has been settled. From core of my heart, I welcome the decision,” Salim Khan told IANS.
“I agree with the PM, we really need peace today. We need peace to focus on our objectives. We have to think of our future. We should realise that better future exists for those who are educated in a better way,” he added.
