Right wing protestors force Naseeruddin Shah to give Ajmer Literature Festival a miss

Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah on Friday gave the Ajmer Literature Festival a miss due to strong protests by the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha and other right wing associations for his controversial statements.
 
In a TV interview, Shah had said that he fears for his children in this country. He has reportedly said, "In some areas killing of a cow receives more importance than lynching of a police officer..."
 
Meanwhile, the Bollywood actor told the media that he loves the country he resides in. "What mistake did I make by expressing my thoughts," he asked.
 
Police officials in Ajmer confirmed that right wing demonstrators did protest against Shah. However, no FIR has been lodged.
