Is Shahrukh Khan unsafe in India? Unwanted Controversy

Presently, a new controversy related to Shahrukh which has become a talk of every mouth. This controversy is about safety of Shahrukh Khan in India and it raises question that Shahrukh Khan is safe in India or not. To someone who does not know Shahrukh then his introduction is Top Star of Bollywood. Shahrukh has worked in many hit movies of Bollywood and he is rated as number one star of Bollywood.

By Religion Shahrukh Khan is a Muslim; however, this matter has never affected his popularity in India where Muslims are in minority. Though, sometimes he becomes victim of political cross fire. Recently, his article ‘Being A Khan’ for Outlook Turning Points magazine created a big controversy where few leaders of Pakistan pointed out with reference to this article that Shahrukh Khan is not safe in India and Indian government should give him more security.

This statement by Pakistani leaders saw great protest from India and whole of media get boiled with news related to this controversy. The line which created whole controversy states “I sometimes become the inadvertent object of political leaders, who choose to make me a symbol of all that they think is wrong and unpatriotic about Muslims in India.” Unfortunately, political leaders twisted meaning of this line to their favor and pointed out that Shahrukh Khan as being a Muslim does not feel safe in India.

 All these Pakistani Leaders got a clear answer yesterday when Shahrukh Khan released his statement and clarified that he is very comfortable and safe in India. He further said that his statement was twisted to wrong angle. He also advised such leaders to stop giving him unsolicited advice in future. With this statement by Shahrukh Khan, it looks that this controversy has stopped and in future, no one should try to create such controversies. Muslims are integral part of Indian identity and it is wrong on part of Pakistan to seed such hatred in the hearts of Indian Muslims.
