Mumbai: Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah Sunday expressed solidarity with the family members of those killed in incidents of mob lynching in the country.
Speaking at a national convention on the theme of ‘state complicity in hate crimes’ in Dadar here, Shah said the victims and kin of mob lynchings have suffered a lot.
The event was organised by Democratic Youth Federation of India.
“I feel proud to be with them (kin of victims) in this programme and salute their courage. They have faced a lot more than us in their life. We have faced not even two per cent of their sufferings,” he said.
The actor said he had often been often criticised for his remarks.
“Some called me a traitor, some asked me to go to Pakistan. But these taunts were nothing in comparison with the pain of those people who suffered mob attacks,” he said, adding that “My admiration, sympathy and company will always be with these people”.
In the past, Shah had been criticised sharply over his comments on rising incidents of mob violence in the country.
He had said that the death of a cow was being given importance over killing of a policeman in mob lynching in Bulandshahr.
Shah had said that he was worried for children in today’s India because he imagines a situation where his children may be surrounded by an angry mob and asked: “Are you Hindu or Muslim?”
His comments had drawn sharp reactions from political quarters.
