BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Tuesday attacked film star Shah Rukh Khan’s pitch for religious tolerance, saying that the “latter’s mind is always in Pakistan.”
“Shah Rukh Khan is in India but his mind is always in Pakistan. His film earns in crores here but he finds India intolerant,” Mr. Vijayvargiya tweeted. “What is this if not being a traitor? Shah Rukh’s tune of intolerance is in tune with Pakistan and anti-India forces. Where was he when 26/11 took place?”
Shah Rukh said on Monday that intolerance towards creativity and religion would hurt the country.
Union Minister Prakash Javadekar was quoted by NDTV as saying that he “condemned the tweets outright,” adding that “Vijayvargiya was not a spokesperson.”
