"He (Shah Rukh) is born Indian and he would like to remain Indian, but I will request the government of India (to) please provide him security. I would like to request all Indian brothers and sisters and all those who are talking in a negative way about Shahrukh, they should know he is a movie star," Malik said.
Noting that Shah Rukh is loved by the people of Pakistan and India, Malik said: "I am sure all those who are talking against him or are trying to threaten him, they will withdraw their threat with this hope that the stars are loved, the stars provide love and they are like a symbol of unity".
Malik made the remarks while interacting with reporters at a reception organised by High Commissioner Sharat Sabharwal to mark India's Republic Day.
He was responding to questions about a first-person account penned by Shah Rukh in a magazine, in which the star focused on his experiences as a Muslim in the post-9/11 world.
Malik said that extremism was growing around the world.
"India has realised now which I identified three years back – that this (extremism) is going to grow in India," he claimed.
Pakistan, he said, would not exploit such extremism or "use it negatively".
He added: "Let's get together and fight against this extremism and terrorism because we are working for betterment and peace in Pakistan and India".
Malik said he wanted to see friendship between India and Pakistan flourishing because Islamabad believes friendship between the two sides is "a way forward for peace in this region and prosperity on both sides".
Despite "minor" issues like the tensions along the Line of Control, Malik said he was "sure the composite dialogue will continue in the same manner and all the agreements we have signed will be respected".
He asked the Indian government to begin implementing a scheme to issue visa on arrival to Pakistani senior citizens, saying he had directed Pakistani officials to grant such visas to Indian senior citizens.
Officials have said the scheme, which was to start from January 15, was put on hold as the Pakistani side was seeking many documents from Indian senior citizens.
In contrast, the officials said, the Indian side had prepared simplified procedures for Pakistani applicants.
We will keep our LIVING TALKING EMOTING HUMAN IDOL in our home..but release the movie..
First of all,Rehman Malik issued his statement only in reply to a question of a journalist about SRK. Secondly, When something goes wrong with a Pakistani national hindu or sikh inside Pakistan,all India including govt, media,public even Indian army stands up in a row for blaming ,criticising and cursing not only to a single non state actor but the whole Pakistan. SRK has huge number of fans in Pakistan, not because he is Muslim, he is a very good actor. I believe Malik has not committed a sin to say anything in the sympathy of SRK. Off course there are some threat for SRK inside India that is why he is concerned and talking about his security. People from India should talk about his threats rather than discussing Malik's personality or Pakistan's internal problems.
Rehman, we will gladly send Shah Rukh to Pakistan. He is scared of living in India, he is welcome to buy a one way ticket out of India anytime. Good ridance...
A man who is a Minister of a country which has become a virtual hell with someone getting killed on hourly basis is advising us regarding security.The whole world knows how they treat their own minorities.Its just a ploy to grab some cheap publicity and cause some discomfort to our government.Best thing is to ignore such comments.
Vienna,January 29,2013 Welcome improvement, Shekhar Gupta of The Indian Express. It is better to attend print media than talking the walk! Nowadays solid visible recorded media has better value. You can expect me as guest oftener.As for Rehman Malik, ignore the poor dual citizen of Pakistan! Shah Rukh Khan has rights of citizen. He should complain as much as other fellow Indian. That way we enhance the value of democracy. Taravadu Taranga Trust for Media Monitoring TTTMM --Kulamarva Balakrishna
Shahrukh Khan ko Pakistan Bhej Dena Chahye Kyu Ki wo pakistan kutke dost jo hai
SRK thinks indians do not respect his patriotism. He should answer the following Why people love and admire Salman and Amir and do not raise any comment . What is the security risk for SRK when he can employ 20 trained security people on his own as he can oford it and earns 200 crore/year
Mr Rehman Malik, there is a search warrant against your ex Army Chief cum President Musharraf . Also there is a logjam between the Judiciary and Parliment to arrest Pakistani PM for corruption basis. So, going by the same, tommarow will be your fate Mr Rehman Mallick. What will you do then ? Seek protection in India. Atleast in India, today's ruler can possiblY become tomorrow's CBI wanted.
Home minister Sinde to be blamed for all these kinds of nonsence statements from across the border. The guy who couldnot put his own house in order is advising us. So stupid.
SRK is a true patriot. His origin is Pakistan and truly he misses the place. He has said it several times. Like others, he is Muslim first and then a Patriotic Pakistan. Like many others he has screwed India enough, I mean literally. He has earned fortune in this country. Now he can go to Pakistan and enjoy the wealth. Do not forget to take along Diggy Dog and slave Shinde.
Why are we pampering these film stars who always look at Pakistan for inspiration & solace. All security should be withdrawn & we can request them to stay in Pakistan. Let us see how many people will love him like we crazy fans in India. It is time all like mminded citizens should unite & think about our own country. Once for all we should stop pakistan by all means including armed conflict in POK.
Mr. Malik has the bad habit of interfering in the internal affairs of India. He did it when he visited India recently and now doing the same thing once again. It is pity that our Home Minister, who was with him at the press conference at that time did not tell him to mind his own business but, for reasons unknown, he did not do. Sometimes clear words are necessary.
dear srk, why your mouth is tied up now. you are known to have foot in mouth disease.please go to fellow porkis and enjoy taliban hospitality. you would do us a great favour if you can take shinde alongwith you.

Dear Mr Malik How about providing security to your people in Pakistan for whom you are directly responsible and being paid for.First set your house in order so that your words would have some credibility.If you think by occupying a high chair entitles you to any respect you badly mistaken.SRK has enough resources, friends and connections to look after himself unlike minorities in your country
People are saying right Mr. Malik - in plain words YOU SHOULD MIND YOUR BUSINESS - you are your country has no credibility to advise on security provision to citizens of India or any other nation for that matter. Mr. Malik have you provided proper security to your people in Pakistan - I know all your party politicians are fully SECURED - but am talking about general public in Pakistan? Think it over and you will find the answer yourself.
MR.SRK I SINCERELY REQUEST YOU TO MOVE TO PAKISTAN WITH YOUR FAMILY IF YOU ARE NOT SAFE BEING A MUSLIM IN INDIA. SO PATHETIC AS A INDIAN YOU ARE YOU HAVE PROVED ENOUGH TIME AND AGAIN. PLEASE TAKE YOUR FAMILY AND ALL TO PORKISTAN AND KINDLY DO NOT COME BACK TO INDIA. ENJOI YOUR DAILY BREAKFAST WITH DAWOOD, LUNCH WITH HAFEEZ SAIYEED AND MAY BE DINNER WITH ISI OFFICERS. SEND YOU SON TO SOME L.E.T. CAMP TURN HIM TO SOME FANATIC WHO CAN MURDER HUNDREDS OF INNOCENT INDIAN IN FUTURE. ALSO A REQUEST TO TAKE MR. SHINDE WITH YOU. A MASSIVE DONATION CAMP SHOULD BE LAUNCHED TO SEND YOU TO PAKISTAN. ENJOI WITH PORKIS.
Don't spread this kind of negativity among indians. Shahrukh only mentioned about some politicians who put pressure on him in india. And we all know how those politiacians are.They only want their benefits. Shahrukh is a patriot of India.
Mr. Khan should be ashamed that he is doing exactly what he is complaining about...allowing politicians and terrorists to use him. He has lost all credbibility with this latest foot-in-mouth problem he is having. Insulting the majority of true Indians who have showered him with love and stardom by whining about a few who don't - grow up Mr. Khan this is a democracy not a dictatorship that everyone has to love you. Get a thinker skin, stop playing the minority card and be a true Indian and start paying attention to the blessings you have received instead of the few brickbats. If you don't apologize for giving Pakistanis the opportunity to wag their finger at us then I will not see any of your movies as I don't want my money to support your playing into the hand of these war mongers. Honestly, never looked at you as a muslim before but if you keep insisting that we look at you as one ... who knows we just might and we might not like what we see.
The problem with people like SRK is not new. This is a repeat of what Jinnah said about how Indian Muslims are NOT safe in a Hindu majority India so lets start "Direct Action Day." SRK is a very dangerous character who has used Indian resources to be where he is at now just like Jinnah and his evil cohorts and when the time was right issued statements contradictory to the health of India and partitioned Hindu India for Islamic gains. Read history as to when Muslims first came to India. Our enemies have the notoriety to displace the same sine they commit and cause Indians to step back. The statements of "a thousand cuts..." is not just a threat from outside, its from eithin as well. It does not matter what citizenship you have as long as you are a Muslim. If you are a Muslim, you are a brother and everyone else is a "kafir" or a "dhimmi." Muslims use our democratic principles againt us. If one is careful to read the Kuran Muslim is submissive only to the Sharia law and nothing else.
This is a cheap stunt by Mr. Mallick. He has show the true level of Paki politicians....He cannot get fame....by such statements...
RECHECK shahrukh's statement .. , he never said anything against india and its people. He said against "Few" INDIAN POLITICIANS and america.. he is a true indian. His father was a freedom fighter. So please stop abusing him ... he is a true son of our india.. We love him and we are proud of him
It is time for SRK to act. SRK should ask the Pakis to shut up and mind their business. Mr. Malik...please provide good security to Shias, Ahmediays, Hindus, Christians, Balochis...in your country first and stop wasting time at yoodling at india.
THE BIGGEST ENEMY OF WE INDIAN MUSLIMS IS PAKISTAN.THEY HAVE NOT ALLOWED US TO DEAL OURSELVES. THEY UNNECESSARILY POKE THEIR NOSES EVERYWHERE. THEY TREAT MUHAJIRS,QADIANIS, BIHARIS AND OTHERS TO SHABBILY. DURING MY VISIT TO PAKISTAN FOR A WEDDING I WAS APPALLED TO SEE THEIR SICK SOCIETY. WE ARE BETTER HERE.
Who the hell you are to tell what India should do for her citizen? You & your Islamist terrorist are responsible for negative feeling about Muslim not only in India but all over the world. You talk of friendship? First you made yourself to be a friend.
Dear Rehman da Ullu ka Patta, you are known for our foolish comments in every sphere of your life. First before making comments abt SRK, you provide security to your citizens in Pakistan then talk about security to SRK. SRK is Indian national and he enjoys all the security/love of the people of India. You mind your own business and stop supporting terrorist activities in Pakistan.
Sharukh Khan should introspect before making any statements, I ndia has provided best life for Muslims in India and if somebody is suspecting them he should understand the clear reasons behind it. Please never make any loose statements today what ever you are is because you were an Indian remember that.
Rehman Malik being interior minister should mind his own business by providing security in Pakistan, undoubtedly one of the most unsecured countries in the world, rather than being worried over Indian Muslims in general and Shah Rukh Khan in particular. There are no opinions about the fact that Indian Muslims are more secured in India than Pakistanis in Pakistan!! I hope Shah Rukh will soon give a fitting reply
