Superstar Shahrukh Khan is very upset with the
current state of being a Muslim, post 9/11 attacks. According to
SRK, he became an "inadvertent object of political leaders", who
thinks that Muslims in India are unpatriotic.
Talking to IANS, Shahrukh Khan said, "I sometimes become the
inadvertent object of political leaders who choose to make me 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. Rallies have been held where
leaders have exhorted me to leave and return what they refer to my
original homeland," he added.
"I gave my son and daughter names that could pass for generic
(pan-India and pan-religious) ones - Aryan and Suhana. The Khan has
been bequeathed by me so they can't really escape it," Khan
