Why ??[edit]

I added the pictures of hime being awarded at the Asian Film Awards and an screenshot from one of his recent movies . Here . Both the images enhance the encyclopaedic information on this article . Why was it removed ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bineetojha (talkcontribs) 07:53, November 21, 2011‎ (UTC)

Anti-Sikh Riots[edit]

I see that the links/description added by me has been removed again. At the outset I would like to mention that the purpose of the content is not to malign but to bring forth to the general public facts which ascribe to the life of Mr. Bachchan. He is on record clarifying his position on the matter said and the information is a very important fact of his personal life.( I believe hiding this fact from the general public, ostensibly due to the information "not being new" is not the good thing. His alleged involvement in a matter as serious as instigation of riots deserves mention on his public profile and if subsequently exonerated, can also be mentioned. The general public needs to be informed of all aspects pertaining to Mr Bachchans life. Not just those which sing paeans about his stature. This is a user contributed and moderated community and needs the support of all members..

Please find the original text I had published as follows 2013:

Amitabh Bachchan was in the news in 2011 for the wrong reason. He was accused by certain members of the Sikh community of instigating attacks[1] on Sikhs during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. The attacks followed the assassination of Indira Gandhi post Operation Blue Star. He is alleged to have made polemic remarks saying “Khoon ka Badla Khoon se lenge” ( “Blood for Blood”) [2] [3]. Several eyewitness have claimed that he made such remarks [4][1] and wrote to the Akal Takht asking for action against Mr. Bachchan. Responding to the allegations, Mr Bachchan is said to have written to the Akal Takht [5][6] [7], which is the highest temporal body of the Sikhs, pleading his innocence. The Akal Takht has not taken a decision yet exonerating Mr Bachchan of the charges[8][9]. Following the controversy, few members of the Sikh community protested by chanting slogans against Mr Bachchan as he carried the Olympic torch [10] during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The article is nowhere close to GA stuff and is a Quick fail.

  • To start with, the nominator is relatively new and hasn't made even a single edit to to the article so far. The eight {{cn}} tags alone suffice for a quick fail. Furthermore, criterion 1(b) and 2(b) are not met in my opinion. I suggest the nominator to consult with major contributors and read WP:GACR before re-nominating.
