That is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. In a nutshell, the story that your mother told you tells us that the biggest religion of all is human kindness and being a good human being comes before everything else.
There is a very similar story that my father told me when I was a little girl:
There was this little girl in a village where the girls were not allowed to go to the village temple, only boys were (in earlier times, there used to be such kind of discriminations at places, where women could not go to the temple, only pray at home). One day, the village priest was going to the temple in the morning to pray after taking bath in the village river. The girl was going to the river to take bath. They crossed each other and saw a wounded dog by the side of the road. The girl requested the priest to pick up the dog and carry it to the local vaidhji( doctor). The priest became very angry and said he could not be bothered with a lowly creature like the dog as it would sully him, and even the little girl should not come near him as her shadow would sully his purity, as she was a girl and had not taken bath.....
The girl fetched medicine, went to the dog and applied it to his wounds. Then afterwards the village was flooded and both of them died and went to heaven. God punished the priest for his discrimination against a fellow human being ( women in general), being arrogant and haughty, and sent him to hell for not fulfilling his duty as a human by neglecting the wounded dog; The little girl was sent to heaven,as she prayed to God everyday sincerely and gave her a special place in his abode for taking care of that dog.
I too beleive that only and only God can decide who is good and who is not. We all are governed by our religious laws as interpreted by our respective pundits/priests/imams/rabbi.....but ultimately, no matter what we do, it's that ultimate God who decides.......
So let us not sit judgement on anyone, be it Shahrukh or a common man. Afterall, inspite of all his sins of marrying a Hindu, and inspite of Gauri's sins for marrying a muslim - SRK 'impuring' the Quran by keeping it with Geeta/ and Gauri 'impuring' the Geeta by keeping it with Quran, he not praying 5 times/ she sharing her temple with with a mosque and all that bla bla that our purohits & imams would love to sit judgement with , shun them and be ready to send them to hell....but Allah/God knows who is right and who is wrong and he will pass the judgement ultimately.
