Reacting to the detention of Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan in the United States, UP Minister Azam Khan has said that Muslims are a disturbed lot in both India and US.

He accused both Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama of not allowing Muslims to leave peacefully in their respective countries.

 “Modiji is not permitting us to lead a peaceful life here and in America, PM’s friend Barack Obama would not allow us to live,” Khan told reporters on Friday evening.

“We (Muslims) are a disturbed lot and don’t know where to go,” he added.

The SP leader used the lyrics of a popular Hindi movie song ‘samjhega kaun yaha, dard bhare dil ki zuban/Jaye toh jaye kahan’ to stress his point.

On the attack on BJP leader Brijpal Teotia in Ghaziabad, the Samajwadi Party leader said the use of bullet cannot be justified even if it is used for a right cause.

He said the law and order in the state was on the right track and the police administration was taking prompt action against criminals.


“If crimes are committed, prompt action is taken and criminals are put behind the bars. The law and order condition in the state was on the right track,” the Uttar Pradesh Urban Development Minister said.

Asked about the BSP legislators joining BJP, he said, “Many politicians see more opportunities to mint money in the ruling BJP.”
