VHP protests shooting of Shah Rukh’s film in Bhuj


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

Around 30 VHP activists had handed over a memorandum to district officers on Tuesday demanding withdrawal of the permission given for the shooting of the film.

They protested outside the District Collector’s office on Wednesday pressing for the same demand. They shouted slogans against the actor and also burnt and tore his posters.

“From the Collector’s office they wanted to go to the place where the shooting was on, which is on the outskirts of the Bhuj city, but we stopped them and dispersed them,” sub-inspector M.B. Parmar said.

“Living in this country which gave him name, fame and riches, if he goes on speaking about the non-existent intolerance, the VHP will never forgive him,” 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.
