Jamaat-ud-Dawa invited Shah Rukh Khan to Pakistan if he felt insecure in India
“If Shah Rukh Khan does not feel safe in India, he can come to Pakistan. I will welcome him. I will help him with his stay here,” Saeed said in an interview with a Pakistani television channel.
“Shah Rukh will be respected in Pakistan. If he feels insecure our doors are open,” he added.
The JuD chief’s invitation comes in response to Shah Rukh Khan’s recent statements about life as a Muslim in India.
In an Indian magazine, Shah Rukh Khan had 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 were held where leaders have exhorted me to leave and return to what they refer to my original homeland.”
