This post is not a rant against Shah Rukh Khan. I used to like SRK’s movies too. This post is about the fuss going on in India about the recent incident happened at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey. The King Khan was grilled for about two hours by U.S. officials because his name appeared in the alert list generated by computer.
The whole nation is angry. Since the issue is of national importance, Indian officials had to intervene and rescue King Khan. Indian Embassy in the USA had to interfere in the matter. I fail to understand what’s going on in this country.
It’s THEIR country. They are worried about THEIR security. They have right to check any person they suspect. They are responsible for security of their own countrymen. Why the hell is India bothered?
They might be questioning 100s of people every day. It’s their job. If SRK was questioned for whatever reasons, what’s wrong in that? Why are you worried? Why does it bother you? At least, their security folks are alert enough to make sure that there wasn’t any blast in the US post 9-11. Unlike here in India – where terrorists do the bomb-testing anywhere they want.
I sometimes feel sorry for the overall IQ of my fellows here. SRK, you are a great star; but don’t disturb the whole government for a simple security check. There are 100s like you who have to go through similar situation every day.
By the way, why is Shah Rukh Khan so important to all of us? That’s not a sarcastic question, let me clarify! Just a genuine question. Tell me.
