Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s vehicle was attacked by unidentified persons in Ahmedabad city of Gujarat early on Sunday morning.

“Unknown persons pelted stones at Shah Rukh Khan’s car in Ahmedabad in early morning hours,” India’s news wire service, Asian News International, said on Twitter.

Shah Rukh is Indian, should not be linked to Pakistan: Shiv Sena

However, the actor was not present in his car at the time of the attack, ANI added.

Shah Rukh is currently busy shooting his much touted project Raees, part of which was shot in Mumbai, India’s financial hub, while the rest is being shot in the state of Gujarat.

The Bollywood superstar has been facing severe criticism at home after he expressed his support for Indian writers who were returning their awards in a protest against the ‘growing intolerance’ in one of the world’s largest democracies.

“Our religion cannot be defined or showed respect to by our meat-eating habits. How banal and silly is that,” the superstar had remarked on his 50th birthday in November, 2015 after incidents of mob attacks over rumours of beef eating and cow slaughter and killings of noted rationalist writers.

King Khan’s remarks about India’s rising intolerance also prompted ire from the country’s right-wing Hindu extremist politicians, especially from the ruling Bharatia Janata Party and its Maharashtra ally Shiv Sena, who alleged the actor to have “links” with Pakistan.

    Pakistan was created for muslim who felt uncomfortable living in India. Till 1950”s, muslim could migrate without any hitch. Pakistan should do its duty full role of being a leading muslim nation and invite any muslim in india who is feeling uncomfortable to migrate to pakistan. Just as South Koreans do for North Koreans now, West Germany did for then East Germany and Europe does for muslim refugees. Tolerance is ending in India and migration is bound to happen. Unlike 1947 when bloodshed happened, migration now should be peaceful. Imagine how happy will be a muslim living in india or Shahrukh Khan or Amir Khan if they knew that they could move to Pakistan otherwise what is the use of printing agonizing stories about treatment to muslim in india. In indo-pak talks, Pakistan should make it # 1 issue Recommend

    After the award wapsi sponsored by the frustrated Congress, this is their next step. Attack their own and blame others. The only thing good is that a few commentators get employed for writing and reverting to comments made, by readers, in their traditional filthy language and style. Till they are getting paid, its OK for the intelligent reader to ignore their comments.Recommend

    … and education to be sponsored by Pakistani Universities. Few respectable alumnus from the universities from Pakistan: hafiz saeed, maulana azhar, lakhvi.

    The last time I checked Shahrukh was an Indian citizen, worry about the not much left minorities in your country.Recommend

    Indians are uncivilized and uneducated. I hope all these crazy leftists in Pakistan who decry Pakistan at every opportunity and claim that India is so secular and tolerant actually look up and analyze what happens to minorities in India, as opposed to the media hype. And SRK is a “beloved” Muslim superstar. You can imagine what happens to the Muslims who aren’t even allowed to rent properties.Recommend
