The gang leader further elaborated on the conditions for the apology, stating, “He should propose to the Bishnoi society that he wants to apologize. He should come to the temple and seek forgiveness. He should further take an oath that he will never make such a mistake in the future and will always work to protect wildlife and conserve the environment. If he does this, a decision of the society to forgive him will be considered.” This statement comes weeks after gunshots were fired outside Salman Khan’s Galaxy Apartments in Mumbai’s Bandra area.

For the unversed, Salman Khan was accused of hunting down Chinkaras at Bawad in Mathania near Jodhpur in September 1998 during the shooting of his movie Hum Saath Saath Hain. A complaint against the actor was filed by the members of the Bishnoi community, who believe that blackbucks are the reincarnation of their spiritual leader, Bhagwan Jambeshwar, also known as Jambaji. Khan was arrested the same year but later granted bail. In July 2016, he was acquitted by the Rajasthan High Court, but the Rajasthan government filed an appeal in the Supreme Court against this decision.

The Bishnoi gang leader’s statement also coincides with the recent shooting incident outside Khan’s residence, allegedly orchestrated by the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. Anmol Bishnoi, the gangster’s brother, claimed responsibility for the attack via a Facebook post.

So far, five accused have been arrested in the case. Among them, Anuj Thapan, allegedly died by suicide in Mumbai Police custody, a claim his family disputes, alleging foul play. Despite heightened concerns about his security, Salman Khan has not yet issued an official statement regarding the firing incident. His father, Salim Khan, commented on the matter, noting the increased police protection provided by the Mumbai Police.
