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.
