MUMBAI: Shah Rukh Khan spoke up in support of Fawad Khan when the latter was targetted in a scathing letter by an Indian media site.

According to a private Indian media channel, King Khan condemned all sorts of mud-slinging against the actor.  “Acting and talent have no boundaries, therefore, Fawad shouldn’t be targeted over political concerns. It isn’t right to point out him or any other celebrity, and I strongly condemn such conspiracies,” Shahrukh stated.

An open letter by an Indian journalist made the rounds of the web where the author targetted the actor to take jibes at the country, asking him to leave.

The letter begins with the disclaimer it does not intend to single the actor out.

“At the outset, let me clarify that I am not singling you out. I am merely addressing this letter to you because you are the most famous Pakistani import to Bollywood. By addressing you, I want to talk to every Pakistani import to Bollywood. This letter could have well been addressed to Adnan Sami, Raahat Fateh Ali Khan, Mahira Khan… the list is endless and keeps increasing every year.”

Talking about the money Fawad makes in India, the letter said “We have given you more money in two years than what you could have possibly earned in Pakistan in 10 years. We have given you recognition that you would have never been able to earn sitting in Karachi. “

Coming to what is seemingly the central area of concern, the letter accuses Pakistan for causing unrest and “violence is being incited in Kashmir by your government backed Jihadi groups.”

An excerpt from the letter says, “Dear Fawad, whatever we have mentioned earlier is being done by us. India. Your country is doing just the opposite. We talk about dialogues but this is just becoming a monologue of peace from India.

Fawad, you lack courage. You lack conviction. You lack the guts to stand up against the Jihadists of your country who think they are serving God by killing us.”

Asking him to “Finish what you are doing Fawad and then do us a favour by going back to Pakistan”, the letter ends with the sarcastic promise of a grand farewell and closes with the signature of “an ardent Indian fan”.–SAMAA
