Maharashtra Navnirman Sena Chief Raj Thackeray on Saturday defended actor Salman Khan, who came under fire for claiming that the 26/11 attacks were hyped because the 'elite' were targeted by the terrorists.
"I think his (Salman) statement was twisted by the media. In fact, in the same interview, Salman has questioned Pakistan about the 26/11 terror attacks but the media is silent on that," Raj said.

The MNS chief also raised doubts over the controversy being created in the backdrop of Eid-ul-Fitr and Ganeshotsav, though the interview was given three weeks ago.
Earlier, Salman Khan had indicated that his comments were misinterpreted and tweeted that he plans to record all his media interviews in the future.
