During an exclusive interview on his 50th Birthday, Shahrukh Khan commented there is nothing worse than religious intolerance and it would push India to the dark ages. He added, Meat-eating habits has nothing to do with how much one respects a religion and it look outright silly. He even extended his support to film fraternity returning their National awards in protest against growing intolerance in India.
As expected, Shahrukh Khan's commented didn't go down well with a lot of BJP Leaders & Supporters. After Sadhvi Prachi, Former BJP Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya commented - 'Shahrukh Khan lives in India, but his heart is in Pakistan. He finds India where his films make crores intolerant'.Kailash Vijayvargiya alleges Pakistan has conspired against India which is likely to become United Nations Security Council and Shahrukh Khan is in tune with the rival Nation. He questions where was Shahrukh Khan when hundreds of people were killed in 1993 Mumbai blasts and 26/11 Terror Attack.
