Kalinga Sena with­draws threat to throw ink at Shah Rukh Khan

Asian Journal - - WORLD -

The Kalinga Sena on Mon­day with­drew its threat of throw­ing ink at Bol­ly­wood star Shah Rukh Khan dur­ing his visit to Odisha for par­tic­i­pat­ing in the open­ing cer­e­mony of the Men’s Hockey World Cup on Tues­day. The fringe out­fit took the de­ci­sion fol­low­ing an ap­peal from Hockey In­dia pres­i­dent Mo­hammed Mush­taque Ah­mad.

“We have de­cided to with­draw our pledge fol­low­ing the re­quest by Hockey In­dia Pres­i­dent. Since it is an in­ter­na­tional event and Shah Rukh Khan is a pro­moter, we don’t want to protest, as that would give a bad name to Odisha,” Kalinga Sena chief He­mant Rath said.
