Shahrukh Khan slam PakistanAfter Pakistan’s demand for Shah Rukh Khan’s security sparked a public outcry in India, the Bollywood actor finally broke his silence on Tuesday, The Daily Bhaskar reported.

The actor slammed Islamabad’s concern over his security in India and advised that they should read the article first before giving suggestions.

The Indian superstar, at a press conference, said that he is proud to be an Indian citizen and his article has nothing to do with the ongoing Indo-Pak issue. He revealed that his article titled ‘Being a Khan’ was being misquoted.

“I implore you all that please read the article. Nowhere does it say that I feel unsafe in my country,” he said. “I wrote this article to state how Muslim artists are sometimes troubled by narrow-minded people. But the same thing seems to have happened again,” he said at a press conference in Mumbai.

“There have been occasions when I have been accused of bearing allegiance to our neighbouring nation rather than my own country – this even though I am an Indian, whose father fought for the freedom of India. Rallies have been held where leaders have exhorted me to leave and return what they refer to my original homeland,” he added.

Shahrukh Khan is one of the most famous men in India. As a Bollywood actor, he has starred in seventy-five films, and is known in the media as “The King of Bollywood.”

This comes as Shahrukh Khan recently penned an article in Outlook Turning Points, entitled Being A Khan: Being A Muslim In The Post 9/11 World, that caused controversy in both India and Pakistan. The outcry following the publication, and more importantly, quotes from the piece, caused many, including the Interior Minister of Pakistan – Rehman Malik, to call for greater security for the actor.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik requested that the Indian police force and government do more to protect Shahrukh Khan. The return from Indian politicians and the media was strong worded, Indian Home Secretary RK Singh said “We are capable of looking after our own citizens, let him worry about the security of his country’s citizens.”

  1. You don’t have to prove sharukh. We know you are a true indian. And world knows which country is safe. For any religion

  2. What a sad state of affairs… becuse of this joker (SRK) we did not think twice about telling the Americans how to run their airport security but we take umbrage if someone does the same to us??? That is not the issue .. the issue is why are we dignifying SRK’s complaints about some bigots and narrow minded people he does not like when we all know fair minded Indians who treat SRK well far outnumder these bad apples. Even his complaining about US security was similar – compared to the vast majority of Amercians who have treated him well. I don’t get it … isn’t this a case of crying wolf one too many times….let’s ignore him and let him cry like a baby that he is. This should not be about muslims and ther other stuff he complains about as clearly it is a red herring.

  3. I am very disappointed in ShahRukh… 🙁
