Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) members protested against the ongoing shooting of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s film ‘Raees’ in the district, for his earlier remarks on “intolerance”.

Around 20-30 VHP activists on Tuesday handed over a memorandum to district officers and demanded withdrawal of the permission given for the shooting of the film.

On Wednesday (February 3), they protested outside the district Collector’s office pressing for the same demand. They shouted slogans. “From the Collector’s office they wanted to go to the place where the shooting is on, which is on the outskirts of the Bhuj city, but we have stopped them and dispersed them,” Police Sub-Inspector (PSI) M B Parmar said.

“He should think, living in this country which gave him name, fame and riches; if he goes on speaking about on-existent intolerance, the VHP will never forgive,” Gujarat VHP general secretary Ranchod Bharwad said.

“Today there is news that a Hindu temple was attacked and vandalised in Pakistan. Why are they not giving any statement on the intolerance there,” he asked.

In December last year, workers of right wing organisations had staged protest against Khan in Gujarat, Rajasthan states and called for a boycott of his film “Dilwale” on the same issue.

Shah Rukh Khan had entered the ongoing debate on intolerance on November 2 last year by expressing that there was “extreme intolerance” in the country.

                          love you SRK. don't worry this stupid protesters will do the publicity campaign for your film free of charge, just like what happened with the PK movie. so this will help your film to become bigger blockbuster. even without a good story dilwale managed to do 400 crores of business. so this is going to be positive for you if God wills.

                              These are the only things that VHP,Bajrang Dal ,ABVP (Militant wings of the BJP) are capable of . Protesting movies , moral policing , beating up couples on valentines day , beating up poor auto drivers for transporting meat ....etc . If only they were brave and capable enough to fight terrorists and criminals.

                                    The VHP monkeys should be sent off to Dandakaranya to end this recurring monkey menace. Ram Lulla is waiting for them there.

                                        SRK has right to express his opinion and VHP has the right to protest his opinion. As long as no one is threating the other with violence or beheading we should be mighty pleased that we live in a free country.

                                          Bengaluru Attack and Bhuj Damage are the well planned acts of Intolerance in the wake of elections and then to continue disrespecting Women by the Sewer mouse RSS terrorists after boycotting the B Ambador Amir Khan Whose Statements finally led to expose these Deshdrohi Bhagwas for increasing Intolerance and terrorism It is noteworthy that these RSS Bhagwas Hypocrites were beating drums in public that Amir who thinks India is intolerant , can not be the B Ambador as foreigners will not find India Safe. Look what has happened. Thank you Amir, you spoke the Truth for the Nation's sake , sacrificing the B ambadorship.
