Shahrukh KhanIndia is capable of securing its citizens, Home Secretary R.K. Singh said Tuesday in response to Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik's statement that the Indian government should provide security to actor Shah Rukh Khan.

"We are quite capable of looking after security of our own citizens... let him (Malik) worry about security of his own," R.K. Singh told reporters here.

Shah Rukh found himself in the thick of another controversy after his comments on being a Muslim led to Jamaat-ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed saying the star could move to Pakistan.

The 47-year-old actor wrote: "I sometimes become the inadvertent object of political leaders who choose to make me a symbol of all that they think is wrong and unpatriotic about Muslims in India."

"There have been occasions when I have been accused of bearing allegiance to our neighbouring nation rather than my own country - this even though I am an Indian, whose father fought for the freedom of India. Rallies have been held where leaders have exhorted me to leave and return what they refer to my original homeland," added the superstar of Hindi cinema.

He went on say that he became so sick of being mistaken for some crazed terrorist, "who co-incidentally carries the same name as mine that I made a film subtly titled 'My Name Is Khan' (and I am not a terrorist) to prove a point".

"Ironically, I was interrogated at the airport for hours about my last name when I was going to promote the film in America for the first time," said the filmstar.

    agree with @maria.yah Pakistan is facing the problem of terrorism but it doesnot mean to ridicule Pakistanies..every country now a days are facing serious problems. terrorism is not only a problem..
    what about rapes,murders etc etc
    India is also facing these problems.
    so both countries should better protect their own countries rather than giving bhashaans to each other.

    People should restrict their comments to the actor and their own country.there isn't no need to include Pakistan--we all know how many countries are facing the problem of terrorism and Pakistan is one of them.
    there has been occured many terrorist or even worst incident almost in every country..recently we've read many incident that shake your body in different countries--so pleease don't include country name in any statement and try to respect others sentiments.

    Pakistan, its better if you look inside your own country and don't poke your nose here. Already thousands have died in your country, try too protect your people first and then suggest others.
