Mumbai: Having stirred up a storm by tweeting in support of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon, Salman Khan retracted his tweets, following a phone call from his father Salim Khan, who advised him to so.

Salman’s tweets offended many who had least expected such statements from the Bollywood superstar, who has often flaunted his love for all faiths.

However, many appeared to take his tweets otherwise and hence the actor felt the need to reiterate his stance on religion.

He tweeted: “I also strongly condemn those who are claiming my tweets are anti religious. I have always said I respect all faiths and I always will. (sic).”

Interestingly, Salman’s latest offing- Bajrangi Bhaijaan- a film based on the bond between a Pakistani girl child and an Indian man, talks about secularism and brotherhood.
