The main conspirator of 26/11 attacks, Hafiz Saeed has invited SRK to come and stay in Pakistan if he feels unsafe and unwelcome in India.
Hafiz Saeed expressed this in a tweet which says, “Any such Muslim, even Shahrukh who is facing difficulty and discrimination in India because of Islam are invited to stay in Pakistan-End.”
Shahrukh on his birthday, joining the chorus of “growing intolerance” said, if there is intolerance in the country because of religion, we are taking away every forward step our nation is taking.
He also said that he is ready to return the prestigious Padma Shri award as a symbolic gesture against the suppression of rights of free speech.
The controversy erupted when Sadhvi Prachi hit out at SRK saying, “He is a Pakistani agent.”
And as if this was not enough, another BJP leader, K Vijayvargiya, known for his communal statements verbally attacked SRK. The leader took to Twitter and said, “Shahrukh Khan lives in India but his soul is in Pakistan. His films earn crores here but still he finds India to be intolerant.”
Another tweet by Vijayvargiya said, “Creating an atmosphere on intolerance in India is a conspiracy. Shahrukh’s comment on intolerance makes him a part of Pakistan and anti-Indian forces.” The tweets have now been withdrawn.
