Latching on to thedetention of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khanat Los Angeles International Airport, Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan has attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama over the condition of Muslims.
I fully understand & respect security with the way the world is, but to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks.— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) 12 August 2016
“Modiji is not permitting us to lead a peaceful life here and in America, PM’s friend Barack Obama would not allow us to live,” Khan said on Friday. “We (Muslims) are a disturbed lot and don’t know where to go,” he said.
The SP leader used the lyrics of a popular Hindi movie song ‘samjhega kaun yaha, dard bhare dil ki zuban/Jaye toh jaye kahan’ to emphasise his point.
On the attack on BJP leader Brijpal Teotia in Ghaziabad, the Samajwadi Party leader said use of bullets cannot be justified even if it is used for a right cause.
Khan said the law and order in the state was on the right track and the police administration was taking prompt action against criminals. “If crimes are committed, prompt action is taken and criminals are put behind the bars. The law and order condition in the state is on the right track,” the UP urban development minister said.
On BSP legislators joining BJP, Khan said, “Many politicians see more opportunities to mint money in the ruling BJP.”
