New Delhi: What's the big deal about Salman Khan using a rape analogy to describe the shattering effects of filming Sultan, some people on Twitter want to know. Among these, mostly fans of the actor who managed to get the hashtag #SalmanMisquoted trending on Tuesday, is actress Pooja Bedi who has demanded to be told what is so outrageous in the 50-year-old actor's comment and wants everyone to stop overreacting.

She also suggested that much of the fury provoked by Salman's comment belonged to politicians and media houses gleefully making hay:

Ms Bedi's tweets have been returned to sender by users infuriated by her defence of Salman:

Her opponents included this woman who asked Ms Bedi these heartbreaking questions:

Salman Khan has been summoned by the National Commission of Women next Wednesday for saying: "When I used to walk out of the ring, after the shoot, I used to feel like a raped woman. I couldn't walk straight."

He has not done so yet. His father Salim Khan tweeted on Tuesday:

"Undoubtedly what Salman said is wrong, the simili (sic), example and the context. The intention was not wrong. Nevertheless I apologise on behalf of his family, his fans & friends. Forgiveness is to pardon the unpardonable or it is no virtue at all. To err is human, to forgive divine. Today on Intl Yoga Day, let's not run our shops on this mistake."
