Rampur. After demanding that Taj Mahal be declared Waqf property and handed over to the Waqf board, Uttar Pradesh’s Minority Affairs Minister Azam Khan has now asked Bollywood Superstars Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan to hand themselves over to the Waqf Board.
Azam claimed that both the actors have over the period of time developed emotional relationship with the Muslim community, hence money earned by them through their movies should be given to the Waqf Board.
“Most of their movies release on and around Eid, an Islamic festival and end up earning crores of rupees at box office. It is clear that majority of it is the hard earned money of Muslim movie goers,” the UP urban development minister argued.
“In fact both their biggest hits till date have released on the holy festival,” he quickly added, pointing to Kick and Chennai Express.
Azam however lashed out at Muslim Community for failing to make ‘My Name Is Khan’ as big a hit.
The Samajwadi Party leader then went on to claim that Salman’s maximum fan base comprises of Muslims and comes from Muslim pockets in the country, and how SRK’s films tend to do overwhelmingly well overseas, especially in UAE, that has large Indian Muslim community.
“It is this collective power of Muslim community which is preventing Hrithik Roshans and Akshay Kumars of this world from becoming as big a star as Salman and SRK. They both ought to respect that,” said Azam.
“They should now immediately turn themselves up at the Waqf otherwise it will tantamount to Bollywood doing injustice to Muslim community,” he declared.
Azam has now asked his
mental Mumbai counterpart Abu Azmi to meet both the stars and complete the handover formalities.
“Their recent patch up is a hint that Allah is with me,” he quipped.
Sources tell Faking News that next up on Azam Khan’s agenda is to get buffaloes across country declared as Waqf property, with the milk extracted from them given to the Waqf Board.
