New Delhi: Actor Shah Rukh Khan has said sometimes he feels "very sad" and feels like crying when he is made to say he belongs to the country, asserting there is no patriot "greater" than him.

“I am a patriot, rather we all are. We do not have to compete with others to say we are patriots… I will tell all young people to be tolerant, be happy, work hard and take this nation forward. Small, petty matters should not harm our nation’s interest,” Khan said on the TV show ‘Aap Ki Adalat’.

In November last year, the Bollywood baadshah was dubbed as ‘anti-national’ after his remark on intolerance.

Shah Rukh has clarified his comments during the intolerance controversy, saying that his remarks were taken out of context.

"I want to say for the last time, I will not repeat it again, that there is no patriot greater than me in this country," he said.

Citing that his father was one of the youngest freedom fighters in the country, the actor further said his advise to the young is to not be intolerant in matters relating to regionalism, religion, caste, colour and creed.

Sharukh's comment on nationalism

Sharukh is mostly a political person in film industry. He gave his opinion against intolerance during Bihar Election to fool the voters of Bihar so that BJP should loose in Bihar. He is giving comments on nationalism during the ensuing present election process in Bengal, Kerala and other states to woo muslim voters for anti- BJP parties. He remains silent when anti-India and pro-pak slogans of JNU are discussed all over India. He never mince words against Muslim Clerics issuing fatwa against 'Bharat Mata ki jai' and the Ant-India slogan brigade of JNU. RSS chief has commented to inculcate nationalism among Indian youth against such CPI China / Pak military sponsored forces who are spewing venom against India. He did never force any one to say Bharat Mata jk Jai' . Sharukh and Amir remain silent when muslim terrorists/ maoist kill Indians. When RSS like organisations speak against these anti Indian forces Sarukh/Amir wakes up and give comments of Intolerance of such nationalist forces. Sarukh may have become popular/prosperous due to whole Indian people but he does support all the political parties who openly use Musilm vote bank and pro-Pakistan syndrom. He has never said anything against huge rally of thousand muslims for funeral function of terrorist like Ishrat in Mumbai. He never minced words against the people supporting terrorist like Yakub Memom and Afajal Guru. People of India should understand the game plan of highly political motivated comments of Sarukh / Amir during election season and never fooled by these sectarian actors. They are spewing venom against nationalist forces for vote bank politics. Media should take note of these unholy comments and educate the people of India about Sarukh/ Amir's intentions on vote bank politics.
