Caught in the middle of a controversy, SRK issues statement clarifying issues about his article in a magazine

With India and Pakistan getting involved in a war of words over Shah Rukh Khan’s security in India, the actor tried to put the issue to rest by issuing a statement on Tuesday. “I would like to tell all those who are offering me unsolicited advice that we in India are extremely safe and happy. We have an amazing democratic, free and secular way of life. In the environs that we live here in my country India, we have no safety issues regarding life or material. As a matter of fact it is irksome for me to clarify this non-existent issue. With respect I would like to say to anyone who is interpreting my views and offering advice regarding them, please read what I have written first,” he stated in the statement.

In an interview to Outlook Turning Points magazine, the star had written about his experience of being a Muslim in India, which made  Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed declare that the actor is welcome to stay in Pakistan if he felt ‘insecure’ in India. In the first person account, SRK recalled his experiences as a Muslim in a post-9/11 world and  how he had become an inadvertent object of political leaders who ‘choose to make him 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," the actor had written.

Shah Rukh Khan issued a statement after Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik said India should provide security to the actor, prompting a rebuke from Indian home secretary RK Singh. “24 hrs of controversy is more than enough for all of us I assume. So do not sensationalize and hence trivialize matters of national interest and  religion any further and drag a movie actor  in the middle of it all…and let me  get back to doing what I do best- making movies,” he added.
