The comments in regard to 47-year-old Bollywood actor started flowing from Pakistan, after Shahrukh in an interview talked about being a Muslim in India.
"He (Shah Rukh) is born Indian and he would like to remain Indian, but I will request the government of India (to) please provide him security. I would like to request all Indian brothers and sisters and all those who are talking in a negative way about Shah Rukh, they should know he is a movie star," Malik said.
Noting that Shah Rukh is loved by the people of Pakistan and India, Malik said: "I am sure all those who are talking against him or are trying to threaten him, they will withdraw their threat with this hope that the stars are loved, the stars provide love and they are like a symbol of unity".
Malik made the remarks while interacting with reporters at a reception organised by High Commissioner Sharat Sabharwal to mark India's Republic Day.
He was responding to questions about a first-person account penned by Shahrukh in a magazine, in which the star focused on his experiences as a Muslim in the post-9/11 world.
Earlier 26/11 terror attack mastermind Saeed, in an interview aired by Pakistan's Express TV channel, responded: "Shah Rukh is welcome in Pakistan and he can live here for as long as he wants."
