Education given to Pulwama bomber by his tutors, teachers was wrong, says Salman Khan

Bollywood actor Salman Khan has said that the ‘tutors, teachers and principles of the Pulwama suicide bomber were wrong and right kind of education can heal the conflict-ridden Kashmir Valley.’

Salman was speaking about his upcoming home production “Notebook” which is a love story set in Kashmir featuring newcomers Pranutan, daughter of actor Mohnish Bahl, and Zaheer Iqbal. In the film, Pranutan and Zaheer play the role of school teachers.

Asked if education can bring a positive change in the Valley, Salman said, “Everyone gets an education, but getting the right one is more important.”

In an indirect reference to February 14 militant attack in Pulwama that left 49 CRPF personnel dead, the actor said, “(The person) who did it (the attack) even he was given education but his tutors, teachers and principles were wrong…

“When we heard about that, it just killed us. This film’s backdrop is exactly the same that the kids come and leave the gun.”

Salman, 53, was talking on the sidelines of a media interaction held for “Notebook” on Wednesday night. The film hits cinema houses on March 29.

On February 14, in a suicide attack on a CRPF convey, 49 personnel were killed in the Lathpora area of Pulwama. Jaish-e-Mohammad had claimed the responsibility of the attack which lead to escalation of tensions between India and Pakistan.
