MUD­SLING­ING CON­TIN­UES OVER AC­TOR’S OPIN­ION

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE -

Shah Rukh Khan had, on the oc­ca­sion of his 50th birth­day on Mon­day, said there was “noth­ing worse than reli­gious in­tol­er­ance and that it would take In­dia to the Dark Ages”

AGAINST THE AC­TOR

“I think there is no dif­fer­ence be­tween the lan­guage of Shah Rukh Khan and Hafiz Saeed.” YOGI ADITYANATH, BJP MP

“Shah Rukh lives in In­dia, but his soul is in Pak­istan. His films make crores here but he thinks In­dia is in­tol­er­ant. If this is not anti-na­tional, then what is?”

KAILASH VI­JAY­VARGIYA, BJP gen secy, tweeted on Tues­day, but then re­tracted it (box, right)

BACK­ING THE AC­TOR

“Shah Rukh Khan is ex­tra­or­di­nary tal­ent… and is uni­ver­sally ap­plauded by all In­di­ans alike.”

RAVI SHANKAR PRASAD, telecom min­is­ter
