Abduction, oppression and forced conversion is fate of Hindus in Pakistan

Soft Target in Pakistan
Abduction, oppression and forced conversion is fate of Hindus in Pak

Qaswar Abbas in Karachi and Peshawar Edition: May 30, 2011

These young Hindu girls were kidnapped from Tharparker in Sindh province in March 2010. They have not been traced so far.
In March, Poonam, a 13-year-old Hindu girl kidnapped last year, was forced to convert in the Lyari area of Karachi in Pakistan’s Sindh province. Her parents were stunned by the influence the maulvis (Islamic scholars) had over their daughter. “She was very scared. She told us that she was now going to live with them as a Muslim,” Poonam’s uncle, Bhanwroo, 61, told India Today. Poonam is now Mariam.

No one protested against Poonam’s conversion because almost every Hindu family in Lyari has endured religious persecution for years. Kidnapping is routine in Pakistan. But what has shaken the 2.7 million-strong Hindu community in a nation of 168 million Muslims are recent forced conversions of young girls. Many see the incidents as a conspiracy to drive Hindus out of Pakistan.

“We are very worried. We have started sending our young children either to India or to other countries. We are also planning to migrate soon,” says 46-year-old Sanao Menghwar from Nawab Shah in Sindh province. He has reason to panic. Research done by local agencies says that on average 25 Hindu girls are kidnapped and converted every month in Pakistan.

The Shamshan ghat in Rawalpindi that was demolished in 2010. Hindus and Sikhs used to perform last rites there.
Hindus comprised nearly 15 per cent of the country’s population in 1947. Now, they are a mere 2 per cent. Many have left, many more have been killed, and others have converted to survive. Hindus are allowed to vote only in separate electorates and are not allowed to register marriages. Of the 428 temples in the country, only 26 are functioning, says Jagmohan Kumar Arora, 60, community head in Rawalpindi. To make matters worse, the Shamshan Ghat in Rawalpindi, used by Hindus and Sikhs to perform last rites, was demolished on July 19, 2010. “How would the Muslims feel if their mosques were demolished to build homes,” asks Arora.

Following the riots after Babri Masjid’s demolition in India, attacks on Hindus have only increased; Hindus in Pakistan are routinely affected by communal incidents in India and violent developments in Kashmir. A 2005 report by the National Commission for Justice and Peace, a non-profit organisation in Pakistan, found that Pakistan Studies textbooks have been used to inculcate hatred towards Hindus. “Vituperative animosities legitimise military and autocratic rule, nurturing a siege mentality. Pakistan Studies textbooks are an active site to represent India as a hostile neighbour,” the report stated. “The story of Pakistan’s past is intentionally written to be distinct from, and often in direct contrast with, interpretations of history found in India. From these government-issued textbooks, students are taught that Hindus are backward and superstitious,” the report stated.

Pervez Hoodbhoy, 61, a prominent Pakistani scholar, says the “Islamisation” of Pakistan’s schools began in 1976 when an Act of Parliament required all government and private schools (except those teaching the British O-levels from Grade 9) to follow a curriculum for the Grade 5 social studies class that includes topics such as: “Acknowledge and identify forces that may be working against Pakistan”, “Make speeches on jihad” and “India’s evil designs against Pakistan”.

“In Karachi alone, Hindu girls are kidnapped on a routine basis,” Amarnath Motumal, an activist and council member of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, told India Today. “People are scared. The kidnappings and conversions are done by influential people of the region. The victims prefer to remain silent to save their lives.”

Agrees Bherulal Balani, a former member of the provincial assembly. He says Hindu girls mostly belong to the lower castes. Officials say the attacks have increased in interior Sindh during the last three months. At least nine incidents, ranging from forced conversions to rape and murder, have been reported from the region.

In one incident, a 17-year-old girl was gangraped in Nagarparker area while in another incident, a 15-year-old girl was allegedly abducted from Aaklee village and forced to convert. The Aaklee incident prompted an instant migration of about 71 Hindu families to Rajasthan. Members of the Hindu community in Kotri town in Sindh province recently protested against the kidnapping of four teenagers, Anita, Kishni, Ajay and Sagar.

The plight of Hindus in Pakistan came to light in January this year when Lakki Chand Garji, 82, a Hindu spiritual leader and an official of the Kala Mata temple in Kalat district of Baluchistan province, was kidnapped by unidentified gunmen from his home. He was released in April after a ransom of Rs 50 crore was paid, but the case remains unresolved till date.

Alarmed by the discrimination against the Hindu community, Pakistani lawmaker Marvi Memon, 43, who belongs to the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q), has criticised what she calls a total failure of the government. Memon, the only lawmaker to protest against the discrimination, says, “The tragedy is that as a result of these kidnappings, many Hindu families have migrated to India. After all, it is better to live in another country than in perpetual fear in Pakistan. It has become routine for Hindus to be humiliated at the hands of the influential Muslim community in Pakistan.” She recalls an incident of several members of the Hindu community being attacked and forced out of their homes in Sindh after Dinesh, a Hindu boy, drank water from a facility meant for Muslims. “He was beaten up badly,” says Meerumal, Dinesh’s father, who witnessed the attack.

Years of keeping a low profile have affected the sense of identity of the Hindus. “They have become a people without a true identity,” says Memon, adding “if there is no awareness and concern for the Hindus of Pakistan, they will remain a voiceless people and eventually cease to exist.”

In Peshawar, 62-year-old Jagdish Bhatti’s long stint in the army was no insurance against discrimination. His sons Ramesh and Lal had to adopt Muslim names for jobs. Ramesh (now Ahmed Chohan) works in a private multinational bank and Lal (Nadeem Chohan) is a supervisor in a food warehouse owned by the municipal authority in Peshawar district.

“Throughout our educational career, we enjoyed a good relationship with our Muslim teachers and classmates. However, we were shocked when we were told to adopt Muslim names to get jobs,” Ramesh Bhatti told india today.

Members of the Hindu community in Larkana in Sindh province recall the tragic tale of Sundri, an 18-year-old college student. One day in 2004, Sundri did not come back home after classes. After a long search, her family went to the police. Two weeks later, the police informed the family that Sundri had eloped with Kamal Khan, an employee of a local transport company, and converted to Islam. Sundri’s parents were also informed that their daughter would soon appear in court to declare her new faith. Escorted by the police and a few men sporting long beards, Sundri appeared in court to state: “I, Sundri, was born of Hindu parents. Now, as an adult, I have realised the religion I was born into is not the right one. Therefore, completely of my own accord, and without being coerced, I have decided to break away from my parents and religion, and have converted to Islam.”

The judge accepted her conversion and Sundri was whisked away to an unknown location. She is learnt to have later married Khan but was divorced very soon. Subsequently, she married another Muslim from the neighbourhood. This marriage, too, ended in divorce and Sundri was married for the third time. Shortly after her third marriage, Sundri died under mysterious circumstances. Her parents believe she was murdered, while her third husband told the police that she had committed suicide. “Kidnapping Hindu girls like this has become routine. The girls are then forced to sign papers stating that they have become Muslims,” says Laljee Menghwar, a member of the Hindu panchayat in Karachi.

Last year, 27-year-old Jagdesh Kumar, a factory worker, was killed in Karachi by Muslim colleagues on the charge of blasphemy. The police and factory management made no attempt to stop the attackers from killing Kumar, who was reportedly in love with a Muslim girl.

In September 2010, Ashok Kumar, 32, an income tax inspector in Hyderabad in Sindh , went to collect tax return forms from shopowners. Instead of complying, one of the shopkeepers alleged that Kumar had threatened to grab him by his beard. Within minutes, the shopkeepers took out a procession, demanding that Kumar be taught a lesson. This was followed by a two-day strike. Kumar was not only suspended from his job, he was also jailed after a case of “blasphemy” was registered against him. “Since then he and his family are missing,” says a source.

In the same month, Dr Kanhaiya Lal, 52, an eye specialist, was kidnapped in Larkana. He was released following a ransom payment of Rs 5 lakh. Another Hindu, Darshan Lal, 50, was killed in Badah town in Larkana district when he resisted attempts to abduct him. At least 23 prominent Hindu men have been kidnapped from Sukkur in the past few years.

Police officials told India Today on condition of anonymity that many Hindus pay regular bhatta (protection money) to different groups of extortionists. Hindus in Pakistan contend that their insecurity is compounded by the apathy of the administration and the judiciary.

“From the first Indo-Pak war to the demolition of the Babri Masjid, Hindus in Pakistan have been perceived as enemies and persecuted,” says an Islamabad-based political analyst, requesting anonymity. He cites the recent incident of a Hindu businessman’s spat with a local editor after the former refused the editor’s demand for a car. The daily carried an editorial the next day, dubbing the businessman an Indian agent supplying arms to terrorists. Says a Hindu businessman in Kandhkot city of Sindh: “For 50 years, we have been addressed as ‘vaaniyo’ or ‘baniya’, which in these parts is a pejorative.” Calling for an end to institutionalised discrimination, the Scheduled Caste Rights Movement of Pakistan (SCRM) has demanded passage of a law allowing Hindu marriage registration. A Pakistan Supreme Court ruling of November 23, 2010, ordered the government to prepare a law to legalise Hindu marriages. The scrm warned that inaction would force them to launch a nationwide signature campaign to highlight the issue.

Hindu women have routinely complained of discrimination regarding Computerised National Identity Cards (CNIC). “If we cannot produce marriage registration certificates, we are not entitled to get a CNIC which, in turn, denies us the right to vote. Despite the Supreme Court’s ruling in our favour, no measures have been taken,” says Sangeeta Devi, 45, from Karachi. She has been at the forefront of the campaign demanding registration of Hindu marriages.

Says Shami Mai, 34, a Hindu woman who lives in Rahim Yar Khan in south Punjab: “In case of separation or domestic violence, a Hindu woman cannot complain because she does not have any document. If she is unable to tell the court who her husband is, why would the court react to her crisis?”

Something as basic as travel can pose problems for Hindu women. “If we stay at a hotel, policemen and hotel staff mistreat us. We end up spending nights on footpaths,” complains Naina Bai, 37, from Islamabad.

If the hallmark of a nation is how it treats its minorities, perhaps Pakistan’s title as a failed state is well deserved.

Pakistan’s Hindu minority lives in mounting fear

Posted by jagoindia on June 25, 2011

PAKISTAN: Hindu minority lives in mounting fear

January 2011 (IRIN) – In a private hospital in the port city of Karachi, a child has just been born. But rather than triggering joy among his family members, the birth has also led to bitter disputes.

The child’s parents wish to give the baby boy a name which will not instantly identify him as Hindu. His maternal grandfather, Suresh Kapoor, 75, disagrees. “We must keep our traditions, our identity or we will be lost,” he said. Other family elders support him but younger members argue safety is a key concern.

Hindus make up about 1.8 percent of Pakistan’s predominantly Muslim population of 165 million, according to official figures. The largest number, about 95 percent, is concentrated in the southern province of Sindh. The Hindu population has declined over the years with more and more, according to media reports, opting to leave the country or become Muslim to avoid discrimination.

Discrimination against all minority communities has expanded rapidly, say oberservers. Early in November, Aasia Bibi, a young Christian mother of five, was sentenced to death by a court under controversial blasphemy laws. She became the first woman to be condemned to hang under the law. The case against her seemed to have been triggered by a minor dispute with other female farm labourers on the land she worked on, after they said she, as a non-Muslim, was `impure’ and could not fetch water from a well.

Human rights groups, including international rights watchdog Human Rights Watch, expressed shock and in an unusual move for a politician, the governor of the Punjab Province, Salman Taseer, went to visit Aasia in jail, expressed sympathy over her plight and criticized the blasphemy law.

In doing so, he may have written his own death sentence. Taseer was gunned down on 3 January in Islamabad by a police bodyguard who then turned himself in and said he had killed the governor as he had described the blasphemy law as a “black law”.

“This is a terrible thing. Everyone should be free to practice their religion. The governor died for defending a poor Christian woman,” Saleem Masih, 30, a Christian factory worker, told IRIN.

Concern has been expressed by human rights groups over increased violence against minorities. The secretary-general of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, I.A. Rehman, said: “This is the result of increased incitement of hatred by extremists and militants.”

Hindus, regarded by many hardline Muslims as especially undesirable infidels since their belief does not include the idea of a single God, have faced especially tough times.


“These days we Hindus live in fear and with a constant sense of insecurity,” Amarnath Motumal, a Hindu community leader and lawyer, told IRIN. He said one reason for this was the kidnapping of Hindu girls, who were then married to Muslim men and converted to Islam.

“We have no problem of course when a girl aged over 18 chooses to marry a Muslim of her own free will and converts [Islamic laws in force in the country make it mandatory for a Hindu to convert in order to marry a Muslim]. But these kidnappings involve girls who are much younger, and courts have upheld ‘marriages’ of this nature,” he said.

According to Motumal, 10-15 such abductions took place each month in the Lyari locality of Karachi alone. “Many more occur in rural areas of Sindh but not all families want to talk about them,” he said.

In other places kidnappings take place for other reasons. From the southwestern province of Balochistan there have been reports of Hindus being abducted in increasing numbers. Ransom has been sought in some cases, according to media reports.

Motumal believes, however, that in Balochistan, Hindus are being “picked up” by security forces, because they are perceived as backing nationalists in the province who are waging a struggle for autonomy.

“These persons are labelled as Indian agents backing nationalists, even though they have lived in Balochistan for generations and have no links with India,” Motumal said. (India is a Hindu majority country.)

Government ministers have accused neighbouring India, whose relations with Pakistan are tense, of fuelling unrest in Balochistan.

There has also been a spate of kidnappings of Hindu children, usually for ransom. According to a survey by the Society for the Protection of the Rights of the Child (SPRC), a local NGO, 23 such abductions took place from between January 2008 and December 2010.

Salam Dharejo, SPRC’s national manager for child labour, believes the fact Hindu communities usually combine resources to pay the money demanded and rescue children makes them vulnerable to such crime.

Lack of trust in law enforcement

“The families of victims do not trust the police and are scared of the criminals as well,” Dharejo said. He told IRIN the kidnappings, and the torture of some of the abducted children, had terrorized the Hindu community. “The Hindus feel helpless. Children are being kept away from even the doors of their homes and in the Hindu locality of Kandhkot town all Hindu children are being kept away from school,” he said.

Ramesh Lala, a member of the National Assembly and a representative of Hindus, told IRIN: “This is the result of a worsening law and order situation in Sindh where kidnappings are becoming more and more frequent. It is not just Hindus who suffer.”

“Being a Hindu mother today is terrifying. I fear my 14-year-old daughter could be taken away, my husband victimized as he sometimes openly speaks out in favour of his religion, or my younger children kidnapped. The police ignore us when we complain, so criminals target us,” said Asha Lal, 40. She said the growth of extremism and laws such as those on blasphemy “led to Hindus and other non-Muslims suffering”.

In May 2008 a Hindu factory worker was killed on blasphemy charges while a year later, Hindus came under attack in the town of Umerkot following another charge of blasphemy.

Hindu temples have also come under attack, bringing angry protests from community leaders.

“All this violence against Hindus began in the 1980s, but lately it has been growing worse. We do not feel safe,” Amarnath Motumal said.

Arrested SIMI and Indian Mujahideen Islamic Terrorists Planned to Attack Ayodhya Case Judges

Arrested SIMI men planned to attack Ayodhya case judges

Mahim Pratap Singh

Terrorists arrested earlier this week by the Madhya Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad planned to attack judges who delivered the Ayodhya case verdict.

According to police sources, five terrorists of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India and three others belonging to the Indian Mujahideen, who were arrested on Sunday, confessed to researching the disputed land at Ayodhya and surrounding areas following the September 30, 2010 judgment.

“The terrorists told us that they had been researching the area around the site and were planning to target the three judges who delivered the judgment,” ATS Inspector-General Vipin Maheshwari told The Hindu.

Three of the arrested terrorists are reportedly connected to the July 2008 Ahmedabad blasts.

Sources in the Intelligence Bureau said the terrorists also confessed to having robbed five banks in the State to raise funds for organisational and propaganda activities and other operations.

US had one Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, India has half-a-dozen: Think tank

US had one bin Laden in Pak, India has half-a-dozen: Think tank

Saturday, June 4, 2011

Several terrorists charged by India with mass killings on its soil have been living in Pakistan, an eminent American think tank has said, noting that the US has not yet made it a priority to hold Islamabad to account for the infiltration of militants across the border.

Indians have been watching the Pakistani army send “armed young men with groups like Lashkar(-e-Toeba) across that border with impunity for years, and the United States has not made it a priority of holding
Pakistan to account for the rates of infiltration,” Steve Coll,
President and CEO of New America Foundation, a Washington-based think
tank, said at a Congressional hearing.

“It would be unreasonable to say you should have zero infiltrations into complex territory, big mountains, but the rates of infiltration that Pakistan has allowed suggest state policy,” he told lawmakers.

It is important for Americans to understand that the ambiguity in the
nature of the haven that Osama bin Laden found in Pakistan is not, by
itself, unusual in the country, Coll said.

“From India’s perspective, there are five or six listed terrorists
living around the country (Pakistan) in similar circumstances. Sometimes they’re judged to be under house arrest. Sometimes they’re notional fugitives. Sometimes they really are difficult to find,” he said yesterday.

Many of these people have either admitted to or been credibly charged
with mass killings on Indian soil, Coll said, responding to questions of US lawmakers.

“So these patterns look outrageous to the United States when the
personality is someone like Osama bin Laden. But in the context of the
way Pakistan has evolved in the last 10 years, his (bin Laden)
circumstances were not, by themselves, unusual,” he said.

67 % of Pakistanis want Islamisation of society

Posted by jagoindia on June 6, 2011

67% Pakistanis want Islamisation of society

Updated on Wednesday, June 01, 2011,

Lahore: As many as 67 percent Pakistanis want the government to take steps for Islamisation, which is a clear indication that they have lost faith in the existing system.

According to a survey carried out by Gilani Research Foundation, 31 percent people want the government to take steps for Islamisation immediately, however, 48 percent think that the needed steps should be taken one by one.

People approached for survey had been asked: “In your opinion should the government take steps to Islamise the society?”

These findings clearly show that the claims made by various elements that Pakistan should be a secular state are totally baseless and contrary to the wishes of the people, The Nation reports.

This is a unique kind of survey carried out by an organization (Gallup Pakistan) in a society where more than 90 percent people are Muslims, no matter which sect they belong to.

That 31 percent people want ‘immediate’ steps for Islamisation means that they are totally disappointed with the ability of the existing system to solve their problems and want to switch over to the Islamic system, for the sake of which the country had been created in 1947.

The 48 percent people, who want a gradual approach, also pin their hopes on the Islamic system, but want it to be introduced gradually, which ostensibly means that they think any hasty steps might have the potential to backfire.

Thirteen percent of those approached for their opinions said that there was no need for Islamisation. Such people could be secularists, liberals or of the minority communities.

Twenty percent people gave no response, which may mean that Islamization is not that important for them.

Their silence could also be taken to mean that they are not concerned for what the government does or does not do on this front.

Slain Islamic Terrorist Ilyas Kashmiri Planned to Launch Ghazb-e-Hind’, a Massive Terror Operation Against India, Bigger than the 26/11 Attack in Mumbai

Posted by jagoindia on June 4, 2011

Al-Qaeda loses its India link with Ilyas Kashmiri’s death

Jun 4, 2011, 13:28 IST
By Vineeta Pandey | Place: New Delhi | Agency: DNA

Ilyas Kashmiri’s death removes a key al Qaeda man who would also keep India in sight while planning terrorist attacks around the world. In a recent interview to slain Pakistani journalist Saleem Shahzad, Kashmiri said United States, Europe, Israel and India remain al-Qaeda’s prime targets. According to Shahzad’s book, Kashmiri believed that India would intervene in Afghanistan and if that happened he planned to launch ‘Ghazb-e-Hind’ — a massive terror operation against India. According to intelligence agencies, Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) had already begun a large recruitment drive in India to create a force for Kashmiri to train.

Set to take over as the next al Qaeda chief after Osama bin Laden’s death, Kashmiri was recently hobbled by the successive blows to al Qaeda and its marginalisation. The al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan seems to have shrunk to sympathisers in the South Waziristan Tribal Agency. As a result, Kashmiri’s threat to India had also been reduced. Kashmiri could have, however, acted as a motivator and dispatcher of jehadis to Kashmir and elsewhere had he been able to get out of the tight corner which Pakistani Army operations in FATA and US drone attack had put him in.

With the death of Kashmiri, the threat to India of terrorist strikes by a potent organisation such as al Qaeda has considerably gone down. He was giving operational assistance to the LeT for carrying out attacks in India — the most dreaded one being 26/11 attack in Mumbai. Kashmiri was on India’s Most Wanted list that was handed over to Pakistan by the Home Secretary G K Pillai at the Secretray level talks in March. Arrested by the Indian forces in 2005, Kashmiri had escaped prison and was since been on the run.

In an interview to Shahzad, Kashmiri had said that he was planning bigger terror attacks and that the 26/11 attack in Mumbai was “nothing compared to what has already been planned for the future.” He said so with confidence after having personally approved and supervised the Mumbai attacks along with LeT commander Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi.

Former Intelligence Bureau chief Ajit Doval, sees Kashmiri’s death as a “very positive development” and believes that his death may weaken the LeT operations in India. “Kashmiri was closely associated with al Qaeda and LeT, whom he assisted in training and carrying out terror attacks. His death is certainly a severe blow to LeT as he supported LeT in its operations in India,” Doval said.
Doval describes him as a good executer of orders and plans.

“Kashmiri was very good in converting ideas and executed them to near perfection on ground. Though he was with al Qaeda, Kashmiri could provide expertise to any group working against India and Pakistan. He was not like Hafeez Sayeed who would go by Islam but an important operational man who would not hesitate in using RDX, detonators, AK47 and modern warfare equipments.

He filled the operational gap in al Qaeda with 313 Brigade, which he headed since he was effective in a combat role,” Doval added.

Two Muslim Women Strangle Own Daughters for Marrying Hindu Men

Posted by jagoindia on June 4, 2011

Killer moms jailed for honour killings in Uttar Pradesh
Mail Today Bureau | Baghpat, May 15, 2011 | Updated 08:14 IST

Not even a week has passed since the Supreme Court had sought capital punishment for those involved in honour killing. But that seemed to have had little effect on two Muslim women who strangled their daughters to death for eloping with two migrant Hindu labourers, whom they later married.

The women were arrested and sent to judicial custody by a trial court on Friday. What was horrifying was that the women – Khatun and Subrato, mothers of 19-year-old Zahida and Husna (26), respectively – showed no signs of remorse and justified their action in the name of family honour. And they killed their daughters despite signing a bond with the local district collector that they would not harm their children.

“People who take such steps require a befitting punishment. This should be the treatment meted out to young people from our religion who marry into families of other faiths,” Khatun said. Police are on the lookout for a third woman, Momin, who they believe was also involved in the murders. “We suspect that she was a conduit in the murders. We are expecting a breakthrough in the next 24 hours,” Baghpat SHO Anil Kumar Kusan, said.

The cold-blooded murders took place in Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh, on Wednesday night. Zahida and Husna were friends and lived in the same area. Both fell in love with two Bihari labourers working in a construction firm. Fearing that their families won’t give consent to their weddings, the two fled with their migrant boyfriends to Bihar. There they got married on May 3.

A week later the girls returned to Baghpat with a desire to reconcile with their parents. But fearing reprisals, they sought police protection. The police directed the matter to the district collector who made the mothers sign a bond forbidding them to harm their children. This, the collector said, was aimed at sorting out the problems amicably and prevent a possible communal riot among the Hindus and the Muslims in the area.

But a day after they returned to their respective homes, Zahida and Husna were tied to cots by their mothers while they were sleeping. They then strangled them.

The next day Saira, Zahida’s elder sister, woke up to see her mother sitting beside the body. Her mother confessed to the crime and Saira informed the police.

Pakistan loving Shahrukh Khan attacks Baba Ramdev

Posted by jagoindia on June 3, 2011

Statement on Pakistan by SRK
I and my family is from Pakistan, my father was born there and his family was from there. Can we just circumvent all that is said about India and Pakistan by the politicians, by anybody else and say ‘it’s a great neighbour to have, we’re great neighbours..let’s just love each other’,

Baba Ramdev’s agitation politically motivated: Shahrukh Khan
Indore, June 2, (PTI):

Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan today said that Baba Ramdev’s proposed hunger strike against corruption and repatriation of black money stashed in foreign banks, is politically motivated and he would not support the agitation.

“Koi support nahin karunga…unka agenda hai…jaise hi koi neta ho jata hai…voh yeh sab karne lagata hai (I will not support him…he’s got an agenda…as soon one becomes a leader…he resorts to such kind of agitation),” Shahrukh told reporters at the release of a theatrical trailer of his upcoming flick “Ra.One”.

“Jo jiska kam ho, usko voh karna chahiye..agar koi neta ban kar karna chahta hai to that is not the right way to raise an issue (One should do what is appropriate for him or her. If anyone is trying to slip into shoes of a politician then that is not the right way to do it.),” he said appealing to youths not to fall prey to corruption.
