Delhi: A few days ago, in an incident that left the entire country shocked, two Indian Jawans stationed at the Line of Control in Kashmir, were allegedly been killed and beheaded by the Pakistani Army. While the brutality has left people shocked to numbness, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has spoken out against the atrocious incident.
Khan was quoted as saying, “Things like country, politics, sports, war, border should be kept different... (he recalled that his earlier remarks on sports had raised a controversy) In a country so volatile, where the youth demand a hard stand... which is a good thing in a democracy.
“I don`t want to participate in anything of which we both don`t have knowledge. I think you and I should be looking at methods to end this strife at the border,” added Shah Rukh.
The superstar further continued, “I have been watching TV, where people are saying "haan sabak sikha denge" (let`s teach them a lesson). That is completely wrong. It is sad; soldiers should not die for unnecessary reasons. We should take a hard stand. We should be very clear and whoever does wrong, should have to account for it and be put to the test. As an Indian, I am deeply saddened.”
Two Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistani troops in the Mendhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir on January 8, 2013. Of the soldiers killed, one of them was beheaded. The incident has given rise to a nationwide outrage.
