After attacks by two BJP leaders on Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan for his comments to NDTV on 'religious intolerance', various politicians and actor Anupam Kher have come out strongly in support of the actor.
We are all proud of you Shah Rukh Khan. Hope your words help to make a tolerant, inclusive and progressive India.
Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi chief minister
Should not target Shah Rukh Khan over his religion when the intolerance debate was started by Nayantara Sehgal.
Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena leader
Sickening remarks against Shah Rukh Khan by BJP national general secretary also in charge of Bengal. What attitude is this: everyone is bad and only you are good?
Derek O' Brien, Trinamool Congress lawmaker
Some members of the BJP really need to control their tongue and stop talking rubbish about Shah Rukh Khan. He is a national icon and we are proud of him.
Anupam Kher, Actor
