Dixcy Chick Salman



In a previous post “Media loves crimes, makes crime attractive” I had written about how media glorifies star criminals. Sanjay Dutt ads still appear in the media while he is now in jail. Salman Khan, the other convict under appeal, has a series of ads. The advertising industry has always loved bad boys and star criminals. Salman is also charged with culpable homicide in a 2002 case where he ran over people sleeping on the pavement and killed one while drunk-driving. He has been convicted and sentenced to 5 years in a black-buck hunting case which he has appealed.  Dar ke aage jeet hai” says his ad for a soft drink but it looks like in real life he’s a scared chicken.

Once the star criminals are exposed they suddenly become do-gooders and people with extraordinary compassion; even for dogs as this Outlook report tells us: “Salman Khan loves dogs. He has two French mastiffs whom he calls My Son and My Jaan. To pamper their palate, he has special food from abroad flown down for them. To keep these thick-coated animals comfortable in Bombay's steamy heat, the ACs in his house run constantly at carefully controlled temperatures. Even when a stray dog in his neighbourhood died, Salman is said to have gone into deep depression”. So you see, a man whose heart bleeds so much for even dogs can hardly be a criminal. Right?

Dogs are not all, Salman even discovered his deep love for humans after he ran into trouble with the law. He started becoming more human and discovered the meaning of “Being Human” as his website will tell you. Such guys fall in love with children all over again like those Miss World winners who want to educate all the children in the world, eliminate poverty, hunger and, of course, eliminate Aids too. Children as leverage! You know, wearing Dixcy ‘Banian’ and ‘Underwear’ turns Salman into quite a Superman. He knocks of goon-monks with his Kung Fu and arm-wrestles to find compassion for a kid.


But Salman Khan showed up for what he really is and what he really has been all along. Nothing but a mindless bully! He had his Barkha Dutt moment and his ‘Streisand’ moment in one go recently. People will remember how Barkha tried to suppress a blogger (Chaitanya Kunte) but ended up making his blog famous. Bollywood juice blogger Soumyadipta Banerjee wrote about the plight of Salman’s police bodyguard who was not only inside the car when the drunken-driving episode killed a person but was also a key witness in the case. Ravindra Patil died a miserable, lonely death after being a witness in the case. Oh yes, SK did make a movie called “Bodyguard” so he should know all about what happened to his own bodyguard. Banerjee’s blog severely slammed both Salman and the Mumbai police for the fate of Ravindra Patil. Readthe whole piece HERE.

After being bullied by Salman, Banerjee pulled his post and expressed his frustration thus:

The last two days have been really excruciating for me. I have received a communication from Mr Salman Khan. There I have been instructed to remove two blog posts that I have written about him. Those articles have been removed from this blog. Here’s a public apology to Mr Salman Khan for writing two blog posts that he didn’t consider appropriate. I am taking a break from writing on this blog till I am in a proper frame of mind to write again.
I am really sorry.

You make your judgement on what was not so “appropriate” about Banerjee’s blog about the fate of Ravindra Patil. What Salman Khan was foolish enough not to know is that bullying someone to pull down an article on the net doesn’t wipe out the footprint but also gets it even more attention than it normally would have. This is what Barkha learnt a long time back after her 26/11 reporting. Her threatening a blogger and getting his post pulled off caused her permanent damage. Salman did the same foolish thing. He probably bullied the blogger and got the post removed but it’s now all over the place. Firstpost ran a longer story on the episode than even Banerjee’s blog did. Banerjee’s blog has a very appropriate image that describes Bollywood and media; the big fish eat the small fish.


But on the internet it’s prudent not to mess with the small fish, especially if it’s speaking the truth. Salman can wear all the Banians and Underwears he wants and pretend and act as Superman but as this episode shows, he still remains a Dixcy Chick.

  1. Chaitanya Kunte and Soumyadipta Banerjee are the answers for MSM anchors who ask, why most bloggers and twitter users are in disguise. When Politicians arrest people for just 'liking' a comment in facebook how on earth anyone with an iota of common sense reveal his/her real identity? If there is one politician who incites communal hatred, its Diggy (whom I call Indian Zaid Hamid) and he roams freely with also gets prime time platform in MSM to explain what he said.

  2. I just read Soumyadipta Banerjee's blog on Ravindra Patil. I think this is the most moving story that I have read recently. I never knew that Salman Khan is such a Basta... But more Bast.. is our system that killed Ravindra patil. Am wondering now-a-days, what makes me so proud of my country?. I think it is because of people like RAVINDRA PATIL. Such a real life HERO. He is so much better than that reel hero.

  4. I have been reading your blog for some months now, and I understood that you mission is to point out the misinformation and disinformation disseminated by the main stream media and present the correct facts to the public so they can judge for themselves. Usually when you call out the MSM reports, you do so by presenting verifiable facts. So why have you departed from this practice when it comes to Salman Khan? This is not the first column in which you have vilified him. It seems for some strange reason that Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan are clubbed together in many people's minds as being equally culpable, though the charges against them are very different.

    I have read Mr. Banerjee's blog piece, and it reads as nothing but an opinion piece, with no relevant facts. The most glaring omission is the fact that, in his initial statement to the police immediately following the accident, Ravindra Patil in fact actually stated that Salman Khan was not driving. A couple of days later, he "improved" his statement to say that Salman Khan was driving, and later added that he had been drinking earlier in the evening. He also gave an interview to a newspaper, before his "improved" statement, saying that Salman Khan was not drunk nor driving when the accident happened. It is these contradictions in his multiple statements that the defense was questioning. If he was indeed "hiding" so as not to face cross-examination, as Mr. Banerjee avers, could it be because he did not have a good answer to explain these contradictions? It is true that he died under tragic circumstances, but what Mr. Banerjee's blog doesn't say is that he was disowned by his own family at that point. His father and brothers are also in the police force. Why did they turn their backs on him? Even before his death, when it was known that he was ailing, Salman Khan publicly expressed his frustration that he could not help Mr. Patil in any way toward getting treatment, as that would be construed as influencing the witness. Mr. Khan has also expressed several times over the years his frustration at not being able to help the victims of the accident, as that also would be construed as attempts to suborn the witnesses. Please note that he immediately deposited the 10 lakhs ordered by the court toward victim restitution, but the court has not yet seen fit to disburse any monies to the victims. What exactly is the "justice" being served here? Finally, let me point out to you, because you seem unaware of it, that the accident trial is still in process. The trial for the original charge of negligent driving (in which Mr. Patil testified) was only at the half-way point, with only the prosecution having presented its case, and the defense yet to make its case. (Incidentally, the prosecution did not call six witnesses who were present at the bar where Salman Khan stopped earlier in the evening, who gave statements to the police that he only drank water while there, and no alcohol). Now that the new charge of "culpable homicide not amounting to murder" has been lodged, the law requires that a new trial begin. So all the ground covered in the earlier trial has to be gone over again. It is a subtle legal point whether Ravindra Patil's testimony can be admitted in the new trial, as the witness is now dead. It is likely to be admitted, however, since he was also cross-examined. However, the new trial cannot begin until Salman Khan's appeal against this decision is heard, and he has several appeals left. It must be kept in mind that the new charge itself is a result of an appeal by the prosecution, which lost its case for the more stringent charge in two lower courts. Finally, you probably are also not aware that, early in the proceedings of the original trial, Salman Khan's lawyer asked for the trial to be speedily concluded, and the prosecutor replied that there was no hurry, as there are trials that have been in process for even longer.

  5. (comment continued from above)

    Now, coming to the poaching convictions (there are two), they, too, are under appeal. In the first one, the main prosecution witness had given interviews to a newspaper that he did not see anything incriminating Salman Khan, but was pressured by the police into amending his statement to say that he had seen Khan. He, too, went "missing" or "absconding" before he finally appeared in court to give his testimony. However, he was not cross-examined by the defense, as the defense lawyer was attending another trial at the time. The judge denied his request to recall the witness to cross-examine him. The prosecution is also appealing the decision, to increase the sentence (from one year to a longer sentence). The second conviction was based on the first, for essentially the same charge with the same witnesses, but using the first conviction as a basis to treat Salman Khan as a "habitual offender." It is under appeal.

    I actually don't understand your statements on Salman Khan, both in this column, and earlier ones. You seem to be treating the mere lodging of a charge as tantamount to a conviction. Even if you don't believe in an accused person's right to a legal trial, do you apply the same criterion to treat the many charges against Mr. Modi, for instance? I find your treatment of Salman Khan in your posts glaringly at odds with your normal practice of digging for the truth. I suggest you do that in this case before posting any more on these matters. It takes some time and trouble, but the facts can be ascertained, even from MSM reports.

    It may be of interest for you to know that I find a close, if coincidental, parallel between the MSM treatments of Mr. Modi and Mr. Khan. Indeed, I only started reading about both around the same time, and the too obvious bias in the reports of the Gujarat riot were what first taught me to question the MSM, and approach their "news" articles with caution and skepticism. Both have been villified ad infinitum and ad nauseum in the MSM, as the worst kind of villains. But the facts in both cases have not stood up to scrutiny. The only slight difference between them of late is that, Mr. Khan's recent triumphs at the box office have not been as minimized as Mr. Modi's triumphs in Gujarat. Otherwise, their treatment is quite similar. Since you always advise your readers to beware of "media crooks", can you apply your own advice here, too, before making pronouncements?

    (For instance, Salman Khan's charitable acts have been well documented almost since the beginning of his career; the Being Foundation might have been registered as a charitable organization in recent times, but it was only to organize his charitable giving into a systematic framework. Nor can it be construed to have been started in reaction to his court cases, since they were started many years before the foundation was established. If your thesis was correct, he should have established it much earlier. You can check with many well established hospitals in Mumbai, Delhi, and elsewhere as to how genuine its activities are.)

      I am not responding to all the points in your lengthy comment. However, it is a fact that SK is convicted and has appealed it. That is a fact and has been correctly stated. Nowhere does the post refer to any chargesheet as amounting to conviction in any case. Stick to what is written and not to your inferences. You are free to interpret and infer what you like but that doesnt alter the fact that there are no mis-statements in the post. Regardless, of what Banerjee wrote being right or wrong, it also remains a fact that he was forced to pull down his blog. If you dispute that, then that too is your incorrect assessment.

      And yes, SK's chronic bad behaviour is folk-lore. Beating up co-stars or reporters. Links with underworld etc. are all in the public domain. I dont have to talk about all of that. And sure enough, I do have strong contempt for media promoting people convicted of crimes. That's what I do on this blog.

      Thanks

    2. "And yes, SK's chronic bad behaviour is folk-lore. Beating up co-stars or reporters. Links with underworld etc. are all in the public domain." Also in the public domain are denials/refutations of his "beating up" costars or reporters, as also the statement of the Police Commissioner of Mumbai, after concluding their investigation of underworld links of film stars, that Salman Khan has no links to the underworld. In fact, Mr. Ravindra Patil was assigned as a police bodyguard to Salman Khan because of threats to him from the underworld. This is also in the public domain.

    5. @Moimeme

      The conviction of a person doesnt rest on your opinion or the media's. Don't assume such extraordinary wisdom or authority upon yourself. The conviction quoted is that by a court of law. Whether it is "shaky" or not is not dependent upon your "opinion". There is an appeal and a higher court will decide whether it is shaky or valid. Anyone can peddle a lot of opinions too but opinions dont count on this blog.

    9. Ok i put up a list here:

      Drunken Driving HIT and RUN case.

      Poaching Case of Black Buck

      Complaint to Police by Aishwarya's Father against Salman

      Beating Katrina on sets

      Slapping Katrina in Restaurant in full Public view.

      Slapping elderly Subhash Ghai.


      Pay ye sab jhooth hai............its all false truth is..........

      He was not driving but to save his driver he took all on himself.

      next he wanted to make black buck famous so got into this controversy.

      Complaint by Aishwarya's father was never made, in fact whole Aish Salman relations was cooked up thing. No doors were broken or window panes shattered.

      Everyone who talked about Salman beating Katrina on sets is all false they wanted to get famous by making such anonymous statements.

      All those who saw salman slapping Kat in restaurant were blind so they were all liars.

      Subhash Ghai thing was all in good sport between two friends.


      All i conclude is he is a great human being to the core.
      Love Salman love tiger biscuit love his underwear baniyan.

      And yes the author of this Blog, i am telling you dont write cooked up stories about this godly person named Salman.

  8. Some days ago a blogger who called himself journalist by writting the dark stories about Hindi cinema claimed that Salman Khan asked him to remove two blog posts which is totally rediculious claim.We all know Salman Khan being the most popular superstar is always in news n Salman Khan neither clarify anything nor forbidden Media till now.How can we believe blogger baseless claim which is truly a publicity stunt n putting this on his blog expressing his clever motive behind all this drama.Blogger is truly promoting yellow journalism because his mostly blogs are about the personal lives of stars n is pure interference in other’s privacy.Noteable thing is that he removed blog many days after its posting on blog if Salman Khan has problem he asked him before,why Salman Khan will ask him after so many days.And that blog was also not something very secret evry body knows about it.

    Now U r another respresentative of yellow journalism n publicity seeker who supporting that blogger because its about Salman Khan n wrote a ridiculous article that any human being who is peaceful by heart can understand Ur prejudice against Salman Khan,definitley U r jealous of his success n respect which ppl have for Salman Khan n with Ur post try to support another bully blogger who is actually bullying actors with his false n negative articles,Ravinder Patil got what was in his destiny n when he was suffering on road why U n that bully blogger did not help him at that time because U would not get any fame by doing this.Now U r active because by g Salman Khan name U will get publicity,totally double standard.His family or police department r responsible what happened with him,Salman Khan has nothing to do with it,Salman Khan cases r pending in court n law will decide no other human has right to comment on it.We all believe on Salman Khan n know he is innocent.Evry tom n dick who is jealous due to his success n criticizing him due to his cases I only ask them take care about their lives.Sometimes anything could happened with them too.So be humans n spread peace n give other person chance that he prove the truth.All those who r wise clearly will understand actually who is bullying n taking advantage in this matter.Salman Khan is the best human being n through his Being Human foundation n Being Human brand supporting n saving many lives n setting examples for others to do the best for ppl n society.Judge evry person by his actions never by rumours who always spread by idiots n believe by idiots.Peace for all.

  10. @Moimeme

    I admire your passion, much like Sanjay Jha of HamaraCongress.com who managed to become one of the spokespersons for Congress by displaying so much passion as non-Congressi. Passion yes - logic, knowledge and integrity - no.

    What Ravinar has presented is how Media is showcasing Salman to be some very well meaning innocent person when the facts are a bit different. You may continue liking him defending him, that is your right. And in fact he is a bully who could not take any criticism. Had someone else, for example Modi (the most hated by MSM) were to ask blogs on him to be blocked, what your reaction would have been.

    As regards to underworld link, I had read somewhere (may on this site only) that all major stars had backed out from their initial statements of underworld money. The only one who stood her ground was Preity Zinta who was eased out of the system by these "good doers."

    Had he been in any other country, especially in Islamic ones, by now he would have been hanged or cooling heels in Jail counting his days of a very very long term. He knows he can twist media due to money backing and hence gets away with everything.

    Ever thought why is that only these Khan brothers are there as judges for Comedy Circus show continuously for some time now and the jokes are made on others and not on salman. The ones on him are only for "macho" variety. Follow the trail of money, it becomes easier to understand.

    The influence of money is showcasing itself in our movies so blatantly, with songs having very less of names of Hindu Gods & Goddesses but more of Allah/Khuda in name of sufi songs.

    Think about it

  20. My own ramblings about this discussion:

    Moimeme wrote a few comments which I found to be of high quality (I am not commenting on the truth of his comments, because most of them I cannot verify). By high quality I mean a measured tone and to-the-point replies.

    The counter-comments to Moimeme are alas, of a different genre. Most of them are of inferior quality. The counter-comments are attacking the person (moimeme in this case), drawing biased inferences etc. It looks like a lynch-mob behaviour.

    Ravinar too has taken an aggressive tone while replying to this Moimeme. I expected better from Ravinar.

    Moimeme/Ravinar both have given contradictory statements and both cannot be right. It is not possible for a layman to verify. For example the issue of "charities beginning after the court-case". Moimeen claims that charity was started before the incident. How can a layman verify?

      Its all very great to sit as a judge on all other commenters. I wonder what your own comment was. If you wanted to find out when BeingHuman was started it was up to you to find out. Its quite easy because the information is in the public domain. But since you are so unwilling to make the effort and expect others to do it for you I can tell you at least this much. Their website was created in 2008 and the charity itself was started in 2007. Now that you know, does it hold any relevance to the article or your comment?

      My comment is about the aggressive-tone/ad-hominem used against Moimeme. I found some of Moimeme's arguments empty but none was worded aggressively. To use the cliche: he disagreed, but not disagreeably. Same cannot be said about most of the counter-comments against him.

      My comment is also about the helplessness of readers when two contradictory statements are put forward with no easy way for reader to verify. I was NOT referring to 'Being Human foundation'. When I said that Ravinar and Moimeme are contradicting each other, I actually meant the following two lines:
      Moimeme --> For instance, Salman Khan's charitable acts have been well documented almost since the beginning of his career
      Ravinar --> Dogs are not all, Salman even discovered his deep love for humans after he ran into trouble with the law

      I really will be delighted if you do NOT reply to this comment. Two reasons:
      1. You, Ravinar, are serving an important and crucial cause for the nation. I would hate to distract you over a silly issue (Salman Khan's charity, of all things!). Your central point of media working as PR of celebrities is indisputable.
      2. I have a severe displeasure regarding the phenomenon of offsetting crime with charity. Whether Salman Khan does charity before his conviction or after his conviction, whether he helps 1 child or 1crore children, should be completely immaterial with respect to his conviction/acuittal. So I am irritated (with myself mostly) that I am getting embroiled in a thread discussing Salman Khan's charity history.
