Bollywood superstar – Shah Rukh Khan is often called the king of romance in India. Shahrukh Khan has often been seen in diverse roles by sometimes playing Raj and sometimes Rahul and has been a firm darling of the audience.
But these days, superstar – Shah Rukh Khan is facing intense heat from both his fans and critics over his inaction over the CAB and Jamia protests. Shah Rukh Khan is an alumnus of Jamia Milia University and his silence over the recent protests is infuriating the netizens.
The Delhi police were recently accused of harsh action against the Jamia students and were criticized for entering the campus without the official permission which fuelled country-wide protests. But Shah Ruck Khan has been silent, just like other Bollywood stars.
Shah Rukh – @iamsrk – son of a freedom fighter, alumnus of Jamia
Aamir – @aamir_khan – family of freedom fighters, descendant of Maulana Azad
Salman – @BeingSalmanKhan – Being Human
Indians made them stars. But they are mute when their voice is needed. What are u scared about?

One netizen tweeted – Dear SRK, you are an alumnus of Jamia Millia but your silence at this moment is disturbing. You have the power to create magic by showering love. It’s High Time. Just give your alma mater some glimpse of it. Have some words.

Jamia Alumnus, aren't you?
Your children study at universities abroad, don't they?Perhaps if you have some shame, make a few calls to your friends and have them exercise 'Gandhian' values and stop this brutality that has been unleashed on Jamia & AMU?

Bollywood celebrities are also expressing their anger after the strong protest by Jamia University and the police for their mistreatment of students. Music composer, lyricist and director Vishal Bhardwaj also expressed their disappointment but the Khans are yet to speak.
My heart pains for the students of Jamia.
Don’t Be Silent, Don’t Be Violent.
