While many celebrities refrained from publicly commenting on Salman Khan’s verdict in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case, Mawra Hocane — who is never scared of speaking her mind — was quick to tweet in favor of the megastar. As we know, Mawra is not just a talented actor but also a law student; it’s not surprising that she decided to comment on the matter.

“In a world with no “NO” human rights, a great human being is being punished for killing an animal umpteen years ago under animal rights. Bash me all you want, but there’s something completely wrong about it.. mind you such human beings are our saving grace! #SalmanKhanVerdict,” she posted on Twitter.

The lawyer-to-be clearly thinks something is wrong here and isn’t afraid to take a stand for what’s right. And while some appreciated the Sammi star, there were some keyboard warriors who did what they do best; attack!  She was told off for not speaking about “bigger issues”. Although that’s not true.

Just before her Salman Khan tweet, Mawra had posted about the Kunduz attack:


She has also, in the past, shown support for the minorities in Pakistan:



And she’s been tweeting about Syria quite regularly:





And as far as Salman Khan’s concerned, she isn’t the only one who’s lent her support to him. Here’ a bunch of other celebrities who also shared their thoughts on the verdict:
