Kailash Vijaybargiya – a senior leader of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) from Madhya Pradesh – has called film actor Shah Rukh Khan traitor after his recent remark on the growing culture of intolerance in India.
In a series of tweets, the ruling party leader equated Shah Rukh’s actions (statements) to that of a traitor. His tweets read, “Shah Rukh Khan lives in India but his heart is in Pakistan. His films earn millions here but he sees India as an intolerant nation.”
Vijaybargiya believed that India was ‘near’ to become a ‘permanent’ member of the UN Security Council, but everyone was conspiring to derail this dream. “To make India an intolerant nation is part of this conspiracy. Shah Rukh Khan is now singing in the same tune of intolerance along with anti-India forces,” he said.
