    Salman Khan questions Panvel neighbour for bringing religion: "My mother is a Hindu, my father is a Muslim"

    Salman Khan had recently filed a defamation case against a neighbour who owns land near his Panvel farmhouse- Ketan Kakkad. Ketan had levelled some serious allegations against the superstar and even said that he is involved in child trafficking and that the bodies of many film stars are buried in the farmhouse.

    A ccording to Live Law, during the recent hearing of the case, Khan's lawyer Pradeep Gandhi read out substantial portions from Kakkad's interviews where he had claimed that Khan is 'a front for the D Gang, commenting on his religious identity and implying that he was connected to the ruling party at the central and state level, levelling allegations of child trafficking, further alleging that bodies of film stars are buried in his farmhouse.'

    To this, Salman responded through his lawyer and said, "Without proper proof, all these allegations are a figment of the defendant's imagination. In a property dispute, why are you tarnishing my personal reputation? Why are you bringing in religion? My mother is a Hindu, my father is a Muslim and my brothers have married Hindus. We celebrate all festivals." 

    He further added, "You are an educated person... not a Gunda-chhap to make such allegations. The easiest thing nowadays is to gather some people, get on social media and vent out all your anger." 

    Salman Khan has appealed to all social media and search engines to remove the defamatory content and also sought an order restraining the said person from making such remarks in future.
