Salman Khan recently brought smiles on the faces of his Muslim fans all around the world when he showed his respect to azaan at a media event. Salman Khan was hosting the launch of popular television reality show Big Boss Season 8 when the call for prayers was heard in the background.
Not only did Salman Khan become silent in respect for the azaan he made the CEO of Colours television stop in the middle of his speech and pay respect too. It could be clearly seen that the CEO was uncomfortable with the pause and seemed agitated but he could not speak while Salman Khan was there. There was complete silence in the auditorium while the azan was being heard and only after it was over that the speech was continued.
This event was widely viewed on television and increased the respect for Salman Khan among his Muslim followers. Although it seems like a small event it is small things like this which effects people and it would be nice if this tradition was followed by actors and celebrities in Pakistan as well during shows and events where azaan is completely disregarded most of the time.
