While attending a TV show for the Republic Day special episode, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan said that his kids are Indians (‘Hindustan’) and not Hindus or Muslims.
Shah Rukh Khan has once again said that religion is not discussed at his house. He added that his children write Indian in forms where they need to mention their religion.
While attending a TV show for the Republic Day special episode, Shah Rukh Khan said, “Humne koi Hindu-Musalman ki baat hi nahi ki. Meri biwi Hindu hai, mai Musalman hoon. Aur mere jo bacche hain, wo Hindustan hain.” Everyone clapped as he continued, “Jab wo school gae to school me wo bharna padta hai ki religion kya hai. To jab meri beti choti thi, usne aa ke pucha bhi mujhse ek baar, ‘papa hum kaun se religion ke hain?’ Maine usme ye likha ki hum Indian hi hain yaar, koi religion nahi hai. Aur hona bhi nahi chahiye.”
Shah Rukh Khan batted for the elimination of the category called religion while filling forms. He said his wife is a Hindu and he is a Muslim, and his children will remain Indians.
And this statement comes at a time when the entire nation is debating the citizenship law.
