The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday termed as "uncalled for and unacceptable" Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik's demand for actor Shah Rukh Khan's security, saying Islamabad should be more concerned about the minorities living in that country.

"The statement by the Pakistan interior minister, offering advice to India, is uncalled for and unacceptable. A statement coming from the interior minister of a failed state, which had the distinction of harbouring the world's most notorious terrorist Osama bin Laden in its backyard, is laughable," BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy told reporters.

BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain maintained that Pakistan has no right to speak on India's internal matter and should worry about the human rights of minorities in that country.

"Pakistan has a bad record as far as minorities there are concerned. There is no country safer than India for Muslims and no better neighbours for them than Hindus," Hussain said.

He demanded that the government of India should call the Pakistan High Commissioner and express its ire.

BJP also suggested that Khan should condemn Malik's remarks and also those of Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief and India's most wanted terror mastermind Hafiz Saeed, who spoke on similar lines earlier.

"It is high time that Shah Rukh Khan gives a befitting reply to terrorists like Hafiz Saeed who are not only a threat to India but the entire world," Rudy said.

He alleged that such comments from across the border have started after Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde's statement about Hindu terror.

"Regrettably ,all this started after the recent statement of Shinde against the majority secular Hindus of our country. The remarks gave space to terror elements to make statements about India," Rudy said.

Hussain maintained that the people of India made Khan a superstar from a TV actor because of his talent.

"There was a time when actors like Dilip Kumar, Madhubala, Meena Kumari and Johny Walker had to adopt these screen names but today Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Salman Khan and Imran Khan can use their real names," Hussain said.

The BJP leader said people in India do not look at a person's caste or religion to appreciate his talent.

"Bismillah Khan got the Bharat Ratna for his talent. Similarly, when a Muslim leader becomes a Member of Parliament, it is not just Muslims who vote for him," Hussain said.

He said that Shah Rukh Khan has problems when he visits the United States, but has none in India.
