India should take 'hard' stand: SRK
Mumbai: Reacting to reports about the barbaric killing of two Indian soldiers by Pakistani troops at the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, Shah Rukh Khan says he feels deeply sad, and India should take a 'hard' stand.
"Things like country, politics, sports, war, and border should be kept different... (he recalled that his earlier remarks on sports had raised a controversy) In a country so volatile, where the youth demand a hard stand... which is a good thing in a democracy. I don't want to participate in anything of which we both don't have knowledge. I think you and I should be looking at methods to end this strife at the border," the thespian said.
"I have been watching TV, where people are saying "haan sabak sikha denge" (let's teach them a lesson). That is completely wrong. It is sad; soldiers should not die for unnecessary reasons. We should take a hard stand. We should be very clear and whoever does wrong, should have to account for it and be put to the test. As an Indian, I am deeply saddened," Khan said.
In a brazen violation of the decade-old ceasefire, Pakistani troops intruded into Jammu and Kashmir and killed two Indian soldiers last Tuesday.
