Mumbai, Aug 16(ANI): Members of Muslim community on Sunday staged a demonstration against the comment made by Bollywood actor Salman Khan in Mumbai on Sunday.

Reacting to the detention of Shahrukh Khan at Newark International Airport in USA, Salman Khan on Saturday said: "Just because of few Muslims, billions of the community members face problems, which is not right," after playing a celebrity football match in Mumbai on Saturday.

The reaction didn't go down well with a section of community, as they reached Shahrukh's house as to show solidarity with him and to express anger against Salman's comment.

Protesters raised slogans against Salman and were planning a protest march from Shahrukh's house to Salman's house. But, the police didn't allow it and detained a few protestors.

Meanwhile, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra termed Shahrukh's detention at US airport as 'unfortunate'.

"It is something I feel terrible about. When such things happen racism and hatred increases. Even President Kalam (former President A P J Abdul Kalam) was frisked. I am not saying that you should not frisk-do your job or check. But without any reason detaining a person for two hours-Shahrukh Khan is Shahrukh Khan," said Priyanka Chopra.

"He is probably the one of the greatest most famous known Indian celebrity ever in this generation. For any person I think it is unfortunate, It is shocking and very disgraceful if he detained for two hours just because of his name or without a reason," she added. (ANI)
