No patriot greater than me in India, Said Shah Rukh Khan



In a recent press conference interview with the superstar Shah Rukh Khan, the star said that “no patriot greater than me” in the country. Adding more to this statement SRK said, “nothing worse than religious intolerance and that it would take India to the Dark Ages”. After his remarks, while some tagged him as an “anti-national”, others called it a political statement. But Shah Rukh has a whole different story to tell. “Sometimes I feel very sad, I even feel like crying, that I should be made to say that I belong to this country, I am a patriot.”

Moreover Shah Rukh Khan said, “I will tell all young people to be tolerant, be happy, work hard and take this nation forward.”We should just move forward with positivity as we live in the greatest country in the world. We are one of the safest and most beautiful nations of the world. We should not tie up ourselves in petty obscurantist issues
“I want to say for the last time, I will not repeat it again, that there is no patriot greater than me in this country.”

Clarifying his statement Shah Rukh Khan said, “advised the young not to be intolerant in matters relating to regionalism, religion, caste, colour and creed.”

“My father was one of the youngest freedom fighters. How can I think this country has not been fair to any of us? A man like me, who has got everything from this great country, I’ll be last one to complain.”

Adding more to his statement and saying his own family as mini-India, SRK said, “My family itself is a mini-India. My wife (Gauri Khan) is Hindu, I am a Muslim by birth, and my three children (Aryan, Suhana and AbRam) follow three religions. So how can I think of my country like this?”

Supporting PM Modi, SRK Said, “I would like to state here very clearly, when we chose a leader of our country, whoever may be, as great as (Narendra) Modi, all we have to do is to support him. Our nation has chosen him with a majority, so we have to support our leader and take the country forward and not be negative.”
