Saeed to Shahrukh: Come to Pakistan if insure in India
After the recent comment of Shahrukh Khan being a Khan and the approach towards the Muslim after 9/11 terror attack, Jamat-ud-Da’wah (JuD) chief and Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Mohammed Saeed extends his support to the superstar and asked him to move to Pakistan if he feels insecure in India. He said that Shahrukh Khan will always be welcome in Pakistan.
"Shah Rukh will be welcome here," Haifz Saeed said, speaking to Express Tribune, according to the Tribune.pk report. Hafiz Saeed made this statement after SRK’s recent statements on being a Muslim in India.
Speaking to Outlook Turning Points, Shah Rukh Khan said recently, "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.
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."
Shahrukh is married to a Hindu girl Gauri and has two children Aryan and Suhana. Talking about his children and their names he said, “I gave my son and daughter names that could pass for generic (pan-India and pan-religious) ones - Aryan and Suhana. The Khan has been bequeathed by me so they can't really escape it. I pronounce it with my epiglottis when asked by Muslims and throw the Aryan as evidence of their race when non-Muslims enquire. I imagine this will prevent my offspring from receiving unwarranted eviction orders or random fatwas in the future.”
He reasoned why he made 'My Name Is Khan'. He bared his heart out saying that he had become so agitated by the occurrence of a terrorist, “who co-incidentally carries the same name as mine that I made a film subtly titled 'My Name Is Khan' (and I am not a terrorist) to prove a point.”
He also added, “Ironically, I was
interrogated at the airport for hours about my last name when I was going to
promote the film in America for the first time.”
