According to information, the Valmiki community is aggrieved due to the alleged use of pejorative language by Salman Khan, and by Shilpa Shetty earlier. The police remanded several people in custody. The protesters alleged that Salman had insulted the Valmiki community by using “cheap language”.

The video of Salman, uttering the pejorative words has gone viral, and triggered tension in Ajmer. The aggrieved protesters in large numbers reached Mridang Theatre late on Thursday night and tore up the film posters and many also set ablaze the actor’s posters.

They also warned cinema hall owners to stop screening the movie or else they will have to pay a big price, sources confirmed. The movie has been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and comes as a sequel to Kabir Khan’s blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger.

  1. Can someone please tell me what the hell is wrong with the mentality of indian people. Is it becausr most if them are idol worshppers or an illiteracy problem? These people who behave in such a manner as these makes me wonder if they are human beings or animals. My dogs have better behaviour. Some of them dont even know the historical facts or the meaning of some words but they allow stupid people to brainwash them and run with it and the india media adds fuel to fire. Sad but true. The media is responsible for 99% of this new protest.
