Shahrukh Khan In Damage Control
Shahrukh Khan who created ripples when he stated “Whenever there is an act of violence in the name of Islam, I am called upon to air my views and dispel the notion that, by virtue of being a Muslim, I condone such senseless brutality,” he wrote. “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.”. This after Pakistan and its terror groups sought to take advantage of his statements and started advising Indian Govt.
Trying to control the damage his statements caused he said “Being an Indian and my parents’ child is an unconditional accepted truth of my life and I am very proud of both… Nowhere does the article state or imply directly or indirectly that I feel unsafe… troubled or disturbed in India,”.
After his first statements Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik urged India to take care of King Khan’s security. Even Jamat-ud-Dawa chief and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Sayeed had offered Khan a chance to move to Pakistan if he did not feel safe in India.
