In a fresh attack, Rashtriya Swyamsevak Sangh (RSS) senior leader has called Bollywood actors Aamir Khan and Naseeruddin Shah a ‘traitor’. Indresh Kumar has called Shah and Aamir Khan a traitor who doesn't deserve respect.

"They may be good actors but they don't deserve respect as they are traitors. They are like Mir Jafar and Jaichand," Indresh Kumar said at a public event in Aligarh on Monday. Kumar also attacked Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Well, this not first-time veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah has been facing wrath from political leaders or from Sangh. Earlier, both RSS and BJP leaders had called him a traitor after he said he feared for his children’s lives and said the country has turned into a land where the cow is given more importance than a policeman. He made this statement over Inspector Subodh Kumar’s death during the Bulandshahr violence case.

The Uttar Pradesh BJP chief, Mahendranath Pandey had said "In one of his movies, he played the role of a Pakistani agent. I think he is growing into that character now." He was referring to Aamir’s film Sarfarosh, in which Naseeruddin was playing a role of a Pakistani spy.

Indresh Kumar also attacked Aamir Khan and called him a traitor. "India doesn't need Muslim youth like Kasab, Yakub, and Ishrat Jahan but rather those who walk on the path shown by Kalam. Those who walk on the path of Kasab will be considered only as traitors," said the RSS leader adding that India needs Muslims like former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam and not like Ajmal Kasab.

Indresh Kumar also attacked rival parties Congress, left and communal forces including few judges over Ayodhya case hearing. "The first reason for the delay in the construction of Ram Temple is Congress, second is the Left parties, third is the communal religious forces and the fourth are a few judges who are delaying justice. I appeal to the saints and sadhus to sit on dharna outside the Congress office, offices of the Left parties and outside the house of Judges who are delaying the matter," he added.
