Akshay asks British youth to stop violence
New Delhi: Britain riots have taken Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar by surprise. Just back from London after wrapping up a shooting schedule of ‘Housefull 2’, he feels misled youth are responsible for the mayhem.
"England is now being destroyed by its very own misled youths. The circumstance for which these horrific riots came about is very sad, but this is no way to handle vengeance," Akshay posted on microblogging site Twitter.
"I really hope everyone back in England keep themselves as well as their families safe. Stay low for a while or if u want fight back, but safely, it is your prerogative after all...," he said.
Urging people to stop being violent, Akshay said: "I understand why people are angry but in this day and age how do humans still react the same way cave men once did."
"Good old England, the very country so many rely on, is being battered by its own angered youngsters who have threatened & abused the very city that has taken care of them!" he added.
Violence began Aug 6 in London`s northern district of Tottenham over the fatal shooting of a man by police. Rioters started stalking streets, looting stores and burning buildings. The unrest soon spread to other cities like Manchester, Salford, Liverpool, Wolverhampton, Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham.
