Shiv Sena mouthpiece, Saamna, has carried an article expressing resentment against Shah Rukh—owner of Kolkata Knight Riders—for his reported statement in favour of Pakistani cricketers. The mouthpiece also criticised the actor for his objection to Bal Thackeray’s opposition to Australian cricketers; the leader wanted a ban on the Aussies in Mumbai following the attacks on Indians in Australia.
