Terming Indian film star Shah Rukh Khan a “Pakistani agent”, controversial Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Sadhvi Prachi yesterday said he should be sent to that country, a day after the actor added his voice to the protest against “extreme intolerance”.
“Shah Rukh Khan is an agent of neighbouring country Pakistan as he reflects their (Pakistan’s) ideology. Such a man should go to Pakistan,” she said while talking to reporters in the court complex, reports The Indian Express.
Condemning Prachi’s remark, filmmaker Aparna Sen called for legal action against the leader. “Can’t believe Sadhvi’s reaction to SRK on tv! They’re ones who want to break the country apart! There should be legal action against her!,” tweeted the National Award winner.
Not new to controversies, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader had earlier targeted actors Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan in March this year for “spreading a culture of violence” and advised youngsters not to idolise the Bollywood triumvirate.
Prachi, an accused in the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots, also attended a BJP protest against alleged irregularities in counting of votes for district panchayat polls even as a Muzaffarnagar court issued a fresh bailable warrant against her for not appearing before it.
Earlier, a bailable warrant was issued on October 23 against several accused in the Muzaffarnagar riots case including Union Minister Sanjeev Balyan, BJP MLA Suresh Rana and Sadhvi Prachi.
