Mumbai, June 17: A social group on Wednesday sought to file a case against actor Shah Rukh Khan for allegedly making some statements against the Islam religion in a magazine, police officials said.

"We have received an application from the group seeking that an FIR be filed against Shah Rukh and will carry out investigations before registering a case," a senior police official from the Bandra police station said.

He said there was no FIR registered against the actor. The group, Mumbai Aman Committee, claimed that the actor had made some comments in a magazine which had hurt the sentiments of the Muslim community.

"In the July issue of the Time and Style magazine, Shah Rukh has used some unparliamentary language against the Prophet which is unacceptable," Zarar Qureshi, a senior functionary with the Mumbai Aman Committee, said to a news agency.

"We have sought to file a complaint under section 504 of the IPC (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) against Shah Rukh Khan and two reporters who were involved in the writing of the article," Qureshi said.

The group had also held a protest rally against the actor in suburban Santacruz before they went to file the complaint against him, he said.
