actually. let one of SRK's close relative die in a 26/11 then we will how much he will support Pak players. first people shout that nothing is done after 26/11 and when something is done then they cry discrimination. wow!!!!!!! he calls himself indian but had he been real indian, including aamir and salman, they would support others and not support the pak players.
That is a very bad wish even for an enemy
Just because the Shahrukh, salmaan and aamir have a last name as Khan u are doubting if they are Indian
Do u know how many Indians love the pakistaani singers....are they not indian as well...I don't see the difference between a pakistaani singer and a player...a pakistaani is a pakistaani.....and what would call all those Indians who are eating away their own country by their corrupt practices and have managed to put India in the top corrupt countries of the world...they are Indians right?
Exactly my thoughts.
There are Pakistani cricket players I enjoy and would have liked seeing them in IPL. I enjoy some Pakistani musicians and own their CD's. I still continue to support these artists. Does that make me less Indian or a traitor? Does someone close to me deserve to die in a terrorist attack, so that I learn whatever lesson it is that you wish me to learn about patriotism? Or am I an exception to these rules because I happen to be a Hindu?
No I do not support any form of terrorism at all. I do want speedy trials of terrorists and justice be served immediately. No I do not support the aspects within Pakistan that harbor terrorism, nor do I support their government that does nothing to help us or even help their own country that is having a problem with terrorists.
However, I do not have anything against an ordinary Pakistani citizen, celebrity or lay person (Unless of course they explicitly condone terrorism). Is it a person's fault to be born to a certain nationality or religion? Since when did that become a crime.
As an Indian and as an American, there are many things that the respective governments or even citizen groups do that I do not like or condone. I would prefer to be seen as an individual and the values I stand for. Similarly, I extend that courtesy to an individual irrespective of nation or religion and see them for the values they stand. If they stand for intolerance or terrorism or even turning a blind eye to injustice, then I cannot respect or support them.
