Shivling placed under a ‘plank’ on sets of Dabangg 3, Salman Khan apologises and calls himself a Shiv Bhakt

A photo of a Shivling being covered by a plank on sets of the movie had gone viral on social media.

Salman Khan found himself embroiled in yet another controversy in Maheshwar (Madhya Pradesh) on the 3rd of the ongoing shoot of his upcoming movie Dabangg 3. A photo of a Shivling being covered by a plank on sets of the movie had gone viral after which the plank was removed and Salman Khan had to come forward and issue a clarification.

Salman is currently shooting for his movie Dabangg 3 in Madhya Pradesh’s Maheshwar. Confronted with the controversy, Salman himself had to come out in the evening to issue a clarification in the matter. Salman said, “The Shivling was covered with a platform so as to protect it. However, it was lifted in the afternoon. I’m myself a big Shiva devotee. A couple of months back CM Kamal Nath asked me to shoot in MP as I hail from Indore. So Maheshwar was selected.”

However, the flagrant disrespect of the much-hallowed Shivling hasn’t gone down well with the BJP leaders. Senior BJP leader Dr Hitesh Vajpayee tweeted on Thursday and said, “Chanting Vande Mataram is considered as a threat to your religion. How could you think of putting up a platform at one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in Omkareshwar-Maheshwar and dance on it?”

In another tweet, Vajapayee continued his attack on the Congress seeking an explanation from MP CM Kamal Nath and Congress leader Digvijaya Singh about the apparent insult meted out to the revered Shivaling and if they approve of such anti-Hindu activities. He also asked if the electoral officer of MP will take cognisance of the act which was meant to provoke a class.
