    Pakistan ? :eek: why?

    That's totally unbelievable......terrorists only give their countries and religion a very bad reputation......but it's true that Terrorism has no religion.....because killing people is forbidden in allllllllllllllllll religions.

    I wish this stops forever.....:heart::heart:

    yep and they are giving pakistan and india and reason to fight...not that they need one..they are always fighting and this is causing more tension in the world and for the image of islam....

    yeah you are right.....actually it's Us Muslims all over the world who suffer from their deeds as people also think that all Muslims are terrorists......but actually every one who causes others to lose their lives or even feel scared should be called a terrorist whether he is a Muslim or NOT because as I said Terrorism has no Religion.....

    I saw SRK speech now and I was touched by it....actually I noticed that his face is tense and he looks sad about it......I feel sad about people like SRK who are good hearted people but they have to suffer from the consequences of others' stupid mistakes......just like what happened to him in USA airport.

    God Save every innocent person on EARTH.......:heart::heart::heart:

    Shabana_SRK Dr D&G

    yep we are the ones who suffer the most..the discimination against muslims is ridiculous and shahrukh's words reflected on that animosity towards muslims is so wrong and unfair...its a form of terrorism as well....

    A show of solidarity in Delhi
    TNN 1 December 2009, 12:00am IST
    Times of India

    At a commemorative event for 26/11 on Sunday evening, Dilliwallahs had a rendezvous with not just Shah Rukh Khan, but other heavyweights like P
    Chidambaram, Sheila Dikshit, Rahul Gandhi and Javed Akhtar.


    Organised by the ministry of home affairs, the event was held to mark 29/11, the day when the Mumbai siege had ended. The symbolism of the towering India Gate in the backdrop was in perfect harmony with the sombre mood of the evening.

    From Gateway of India: It was an event that paid homage to the victims and heroes of 26/11 and other terrorist attacks in the country. Through the do, titled Nation in Solidarity Against Terror, the ministry of home affairs wanted to articulate the message of being one against terror and salute those who braved the travesties. A bevy of celebrities from Bollywood, sports and music took to the stage to convey the message.

    At India Gate: Despite security concerns and the presence of some political heavyweights, the event began only half an hour late. But enclosures at the India Gate lawns could barely keep the crowd that had collected almost an hour before the show began, at bay. India Gate was chosen as the venue for the commemorative event because terrorism is not just restricted to any particular city and impacts the entire nation.

    Star power: Directed by filmmaker Feroz Abbas Khan (of Gandhi, My Father fame), the event was a mix of inspiring words and messages given through patriotic numbers. While Vishnu Zhende, the CST railway station announcer requested the crowd to observe a minute-long silence in memory of those who were lost to terror, lyricist Javed Akhtar passionately recited a nazm he had composed on 26/11 this year. The crowd was visibly moved when singer Shilpa Rao crooned Vaishnav Jan Toh and Shreya Ghoshal to Ekla Chalo, the poem penned by Rabindranath Tagore. In fact, even Delhi chief minister Shiela Dikshit was seen lip-syncing to the lyrics of Ekla Chalo.

    Olympic gold medalist Abhinav Bindra spoke about the nation’s efforts in keeping terrorism at bay, while tennis ace Sania Mirza recited Rabindranath Tagore’s poem Where The Mind Is Without Fear.

    But when Shah Rukh Khan came on the stage, after the initial roar of welcome, there was a collective silence – the one that comes when you pay attention to what someone else is saying. The crowd listened to SRK in rapt attention as he spoke about being a proud Indian.

    Music therapy: The compere for the evening, Nandita Das, said that music has the power to heal all wounds, giving way to a scintillating jugalbandi performance by violinist L Subramaniam and son Ambi Subramaniam. They were later joined by Subramaniam senior’s wife, Kavita Krishnamurthy and Shankar Mahadevan, and they all performed to Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram.

    Congress scion Rahul Gandhi, on the other hand, made for a quiet presence at the do. While politicians, guests from Bollywood and senior Congress politicos were seated in the front row as is customary, Rahul was seated in the third row, away from public glare. In fact, during the entire event hour long event, the camera panned on him only once. It was whispered that he did not want any attention at the do and had requested the same be respected by all officials present there.

    Shah Rukh Khan speaks for the first time about the Mumbai tragedy

    By Bollywood Hungama News Network, December 2, 2008 - 18:25 IST

    Click to hear the full interview
    Shah Rukh Khan has spoken for the first time about his thoughts on the Mumbai atrocities. Speaking exclusively to Raj and Pablo for this Saturday's (6 December) 'Love Bollywood' Show on BBC Asian Network, Shah Rukh speaks openly about why he hasn't talked about the attacks till now as well as his views on what the younger generation of Muslims should be concentrating on.

    Shah Rukh said "I've tried to keep away from commenting on this as there are no words to express a situation like this because our feelings are mixed with anger, disbelief and sadness."

    In light of the horrific attacks, Shah Rukh went on to give his thoughts on religion and the younger Muslim generation. "Being Muslim myself, I believe youngsters need to understand Islam and respect the religion in the right way. It's such a huge waste and my appeal to all in these times and in recent years is that please can we run what we want in terms of politics, government, jobs and teaching our children with the prime motive of taking communalism out of it. I think no agenda should be attached to any kind of religion."

    Shah Rukh spoke passionately about his views on what he feels should be the only religion the nations' children should follow - 'work'; he goes on to say, "The religion our children are born with should be something they practice as a discipline and work should be developed as the new religion."
