Unity is our biggest weapon against terror: Shahrukh

Shahrukh Khan Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan says the recent terror attacks have made the Indians realize the importance of unity.

While on an interview to CNN-IBN, the actor also launched a scathing attack on Islamic clerics who preach terrorism. He accused them of distorting the Quran and said these forces must be "shunned and isolated".

"Jihad was supposed to be propagated by the Prophet himself. But unfortunately, now two versions of Islam exist. There is an Islam from Allah and very unfortunately, there is an Islam from the Mullahs," Khan told news channel.

Appealing for providing youngsters with the "right reading" of the Quran, the 43-year-old superstar said political parties should not be allowed to pursue communal agenda and there should be a law which will not allow any party to "misread" any of the holy books.

"I think for hardliners, both of Hindus and Muslims, there should be a law against them that no party's agenda can be communal. There should be a hardliner treatment for the hardliners," he said.

Khan, who is a favourite in Pakistan, did not favour bombing Pakistan to flush out terrorists holed up there responsible for terror attacks in the country. "No, absolutely not. This is a passionate reaction. They (Pakistanis) are also the victims of the same problem," he said.

When asked whether he fancied himself in a public role, he said, "I am not scared. But I am not selfless enough to be a politician. I wish five years down the line... I could do something for this country."

Khan was of the view that there could be some "positive" outcomes to the tragedy.

"I think for the first time, we all have come to realise that unity has got strengthened. That is the biggest positive outcome. They have now given us the biggest weapon against them," he added.

The Almighty Allah says,

"When a servant thinks of Me, I am near.
When he invokes Me, I am with him.
If he reflects on Me in secret, I reply in secret,
And if he acknowledges Me in an assembly,
I acknowledge him in a far superior assembly."

- Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reptd by Abu Huraira
