. . . . . . How can we, even, consider LeT Chief Hafiz Saeed’s statement about lifting Police Protection and providing sanctury to Indian Superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
He twisted SRK’s remarks and offered Shah Rukh a safe place in Pakistan; the same protection they had given to Star-terrorist (and Viagra user sex addict) Osama in a radio-blank high walled two storey building in Attobabad.
. . . . . Whole world knows that when US Marine Commandoes stormed in, Osama was accompanied by two young girls and a gaurd who hit the Osama’s head with a springfield bullet before US tropper could capture him.
Huh… they keep a hitman to kill those under protection. And, that old stinking dog is offering cover to an Indian Superstar. I need to say that Saeed attempt to provoke Indian Muslims has failed, though he gave an opportunity to a mob of goons.
. . . . . . I am a biggest admirer of Shah Rukh’s energy, his optimistic approach towards life; his upto the mark IQ; his brilliant sense of humor: often deepest and intelligent sarcasm; a well-mannered, well behaived and protective father; and a caring and loving husband of ‘hindu’ wife Gauri, who has a mandir in ‘Mannat’ where she performs hindu rituals. His awareness of every current affairs, his intellectual way of handling a ‘mob’ of over-populated media persons.
Yes..! The side effects of having power can be seen on the phosphoras face of innumerable News Channels.
This article is an attempt to clear SRK image, to be an Pak lover.
. . . . . . . .
Yeah …! I accept that Shah Rukh doesn’t often speak against Pakistan; and why would he speak? If his movies are liked there, as well as his movies are watched all over the Gulf. He has big fan following in all those muslim countries… All these SRKs fans become the source of foreign revenue, which comes to India.
Does it mean SRK is an unpatriotic Indian Muslim?

Utter Nonsense. . .
Pakistan was carved out in 1947 to ensure security for this subcontinent’s Muslims in a separate homeland. Why, six
decades later, has Pakistan
become the most insecure
place for Muslims in the world? Why are more Muslims being killed each day, on an average, in Pakistan than in the rest of the Muslim world put together? This continual mass murder is not being done by Hindus, who were once proud residents of Punjab and Sindh but are now merely a near-
Some Pakistan leaders even express pride in
the fact that non-Muslims,
who constituted around 20 per cent of the population in
1947, have been reduced to
less than 2 per cent.
It doesn’t mean that Hindus have transformed by the goodness of Muslims there. No, it means either they have gone out to India or mercilessly killed by fundamentalists.
In contrast, the percentage of
Muslims in secular India has
increased since independence.
Hindus and Sikhs are not
killing Muslims in Pakistan;
Muslims are murdering Muslims, and on a scale unprecedented in the history of Punjab, the North West Frontier and Sindh. Why? There have been riots in India, some of them horrendous. But the graph is one of ebb from the peak of 1947.
When a riot does occur, as in Maharashtra recently, civil society and media stand up to demand accountability, and the ground pressure of a secular
democracy forces even
reluctant governments to
cooperate in punishment of the guilty.
When Shias, or other sectarians, are mass-
murdered in Pakistan on a
regular basis, the killers
celebrate a duty well done.
History’s paradox is evident:
Muslims today are safer in
India than in Pakistan.
The muhajirs who left the cities of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar in 1947 would have been far safer in Lucknow, Patna and
dozens of cities in their original land than they are now in the tense streets and by-lanes of Karachi. Could Shah Rukh Khan have become an international heart throb if his parents had joined the emigration in 1947?
Since he is talented he would have gained some recognition on the fringes of elite society, but he could not have become a central presence of a popular
culture that has seeped and
spread to every tehsil and
village. Shah Rukh is not the only Muslim superstar in
Mumbai’s film world; Salman and Amir Khan do not hide their
identity through an alias; their birth name is their public
Rafi, as his name confirms, was a Muslim. He was born in 1924 in western Punjab and came to Mumbai as a very young man in search of dreams. Those dreams had not come true by 1947. Rafi had the option of returning to Lahore. He chose to remain in Mumbai, and brought his family in what might be called the reverse direction. It was a wise choice.
Mumbai made Rafi’s voice immortal. Rafi, like Indian, was the distillation of many inspirations.
Hafiz Saeed and his ilk posses
cramped, virulent minds which condemn the ragas upon which our subcontinent’s music, both
classic and popular, is based, as inimical.
They want to destroy a shared Hindu-Muslim cultural heritage in which Muslim maestros took classical music to splendid heights under the patronage of padishahs, rajahs and nawabs. Instead of art, they possess vitriol, even as the violence they spawn turns Pakistan into a laboratory of chaos. They call themselves guardians of their nation, but they are in fact regressive theocrats who are shredding the Pakistan that Jinnah imagined.
Extremists who reduce faith to a fortress do not understand a simple truth: faith cannot be
partitioned. Islam was a revelation for mankind; it
cannot be usurped by a minor
tract of geography. Nations are created by and for men, within boundaries of language or culture or tribe. Religion comes from God; it is not a political tool for human
Those who equate religion with nation distort the first and destroy the second. Pakistan has become a battlefield for dysfunctional forces because theocrats will not permit it to become a rational state.
