MPAC has got it wrong that it was the Hindu wife-Muslim Husband angle in MNIK which led to arrests and deployment of special forces.The fracas by the right wing Shiva Sena was over the actor Shahrukh Khan's remarks on inclusion of Pakistani cricketers in the Indian Premier League. Also relevant in this regard is Shahrukh Khan's Pathan/Pushtoon heritage. In fact, another movie Jodha Akbar, with a similar (Hindu wife and Muslim Husband) plot was widely exhibited just over two years ago without an issue made about this angle.

Islamophobia is alive and well in India, but the days of Muslim actors hiding their Muslim names (Dilip Kumar aka Yusuf Khan) to get ahead is over and I guess the film going audiences have matured to a level where they don't get incensed over such angles.
