Salman Khan thanks people for understanding gravity of situation and observing lockdown rules


New Delhi: Actor Salman Khan on Friday thanked people for staying indoors and shared two pictures, first showing Bada Qabaristan’s (graveyard) gate which has been closed due to lockdown and the second was of an empty street in Mumbai.

The actor thanked the people for listening to the guidelines and understanding the gravity of this situation amid the 21-day government-imposed lockdown in view of coronavirus outbreak. The tweet by ‘Dabangg’ actor came soon after the conclusion of Shab-e-Barat.

Shab-e-Barat is observed as a day of forgiveness or atonement in Islam and leads to congregations at graveyards and religious places.

The 54-year-old actor took to Twitter and wrote, “Wah! Thank u for listening n understanding the gravity of this situation the country is in. God bless n protect each n every 1. .#IndiaFightsCorona”

Over the past few days, appeals were made to the Muslim community from several quarters to not venture out of their houses to pray on Shab-e-Barat in view of the COVID-19 lockdown.

Earlier, the ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ star shared his lockdown experience in a video message with nephew Nirvaan and urged people to take the government’s advisory of self-isolation seriously amid the rising cases of coronavirus in the country. (ANI)
