Shiv Sena activists protest outside SRK bungalow
MUMBAI: Hindu right-wing group Shiv Sena activists today staged protest against Shahrukh Khan outside his residence for supporting the inclusion of Pakistani cricketers in the IPL issue.
Although SRK''s residence was put under high security, Mumbai police had to fight back to bring the situation under control as it arrested 25-30 Sena activists.
Earlier, Sena workers on Sunday tore up Shah Rukh''s posters and burnt them outside a theatre in Kandivali. They also threatened the manager of theatre not to show the movie ‘My Name Is Khan'' in cinema hall.
According to reports, Sena is also reportedly planning to protest outside the actor''s house Mannat. So the security and surveillance at the actor''s residence has been increased.
After Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut advised SRK to migrate to Lahore or Islamabad, Sena boss Thackeray went ballistic at the superstar.
In an editorial in the party''s news daily ‘Saamna'', Thackeray said Shah Rukh has insulted 26/11 martyrs by talking about Pakistani players in IPL.
He even went on to advise the actor to make Ajmal Kasab the captain of his team. And he added that for vice captain, Shah Rukh could get Afzal Guru, who is under a death sentence for the attack on Parliament.
