The recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai have moved the whole nation. People from all walks of life from general public to media persons to celebrities to social workers have criticised the barbaric act. Bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan had earlier expressed their anger on the incidents. Now, Chhota Nawab Saif Ali Khan has slammed the terrorists for killing many innocent lives in the name of religion.
Saif wrote in a statement that he, as an Indian and a Muslim, wanted to express his condemnation and outright disgust at the people who killed innocent people in the name of God. "I am so worried that the whole religion (Islam) will be judged and condemned. There are strong communal feelings running through all strata's of our society and I find it hard to defend the fact that there seems to be a Muslim hand behind every detonator. I feel a little scared as a Muslim now," wrote the actor.
The actor also criticised the government for failing to protect the public. He said that the BJP was busy asking for votes even before the dead bodies of the people killed in the terror attacks were cremated. His girlfriend Kareena Kapoor also came down heavily on the politicians. She said that the politicians surround themselves with security guards but do little for the security of the people who voted them to power.
The couple offered their condolences to the bereaved family of the people who suffered at the terror attacks. They also thank the NSG (National Security Guard) and the Mumbai police for handling the situation so well.
