King Khan, Shahrukh Khan is now an ambassador for Interpol's 'Turn Back Crime' campaign. He is the first Indian actor to have been made an ambassador for such a big global campaign, aimed at raising public awareness that organised crime is often involved in seemingly unrelated crimes.
'Turn Back Crime' campaign has garnered support from a lot of big personalities across the world, from Lionel Messi to Kimi Raikkonen. And now Shahrukh will be joining Jackie Chan as an ambassador for this campaign, he will be lending his voice to help spread the message that all of society benefits when citizens respect law and fight crime.
Speaking on the matter, Shahrukh Khan said, "It's a very special honour to be a part of Interpol's Turn Back Crime campaign as an ambassador. As Mahatma Gandhi once said, 'I shall not fear anyone on Earth. I shall fear only god. I shall not bear ill will toward anyone. I shall not submit to injustice from anyone. I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering, if I have to."
"We all should believe in this maxim and in whatever way possible resolve not to let unjust people who might threaten us with criminal activity make us fear them. Because I believe we can, we should, and we must stand together against the few who commit crimes against any human being, in whatever form or guise these crimes might take," he added.

"We are honoured to have him as an Ambassador for Interpol's global Turn Back Crime campaign and we look forward to seeing how he puts his artistic talents behind this campaign," concluded the Interpol Chief.
