“We carry his name, in spirit & kind.”

عشرت قطرە ہے دریا میں فنا ہو جانا

درد کا ہد سے گزرنا ہے دوا ہو جانا

مرزا غالب

ishrat-e-qatra hai dariyā meñ fanā ho jaanā

dard kā had se guzarnā hai davā ho jaanā

Sub: Let’s do it: Hitchhiking  for Zakat for the ailing FD and NCD- Holders of the DHFL

Dear Mr. Khan, The King of Bollywood, our Arthur Dent, Don Juan DeMarco,

Hope you and your family along with the humankind (The Holy Quran, 10:19) are doing well during this divesting situation within the  pandemic.

First of all we must congratulate you for your grand success as a second richest actors of the world. We are really proud of you.

Now, we writing to you, not as one of the richest wisdom actors of the world, not as one of the  owners of our beloved Kolkata’s cricket team (Kolkata Knight Riders or KKR), even not as a brand ambassador of the DHFL, for which we are now suffering. We, as human beings, earthians, species beings, are appealing to another human being for  the zakat, though we, mostly retired senior citizens (cannot perform socially necessary labor, cf. Ibn Khaldun’s socio-economic thoughts), are trapped by the sin of Riba.

Yes, we, some members of humankind, have committed sin and that has changed our lives.

However, for the sake of welfare of humankind 

(Please see the attached video where you have provided your vibrant voice for the humankind by reiterating Mahatma Gandhi), 

we are urging for 


 to your kind self.


[O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted. –The Holy Quran, 49:13 ]

In this context of “human being”, we are fully supporting your comments made on the  3rd  November 2015 regarding hate and intolerance prevailed in India. (Shah Rukh Khan criticises ‘intolerance’ in India VIEW HERE as reported on 3 November 2015 ©BBC News). It was heroic and courageous truth that you had told on that day in the context of contemporary manufactured hatred. 

This is for your kind information that we, searching for syncretism in the South Asia with pluralist culture, have made a video collage called “The End of Humans”⤡ for condemning monoreligious fundamentalism by using some clippings from Kamal Haasan’s film Hey Ram. We must appreciate your height of acting in the character of Amjad Ali Khan in this film. 

We are now sharing our appeal through the following posters, widely circulated in the different social media in the context of DHFL Scam⤡. All the posters speak themselves about the anguished DHFL FD and NCDholders. In all these posters, the sufferers are switching over from real to reel or vice versa.

In fact, we are viewing you as Arthur Dent, the rescuer, following the extinction of the DHFL FD and NCDholders by a gang of irksome bureaucratic aliens, viz., Vogons to make way for a relief.


[“Be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity. Whatever good you send forth for your souls before you, you shall find it with Allah. For Allah sees well all that you do.” (The Holy Quran, 2:110)]  


[If you disclose acts of charity, even so it is well, but if you conceal them, and make them reach those really in need, that is best for you. It will remove from you some of your (stains of) evil” (The Holy Quran, 2:271)].


[Those who in charity spend of their goods by night and by day, in secret and in public, have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” (The Holy Quran, 2:274)]


[O ye who believe, spend of the wealth We have bestowed upon you (in Allah’s way), before the Day comes when there shall be no buying and no selling; when neither friendship nor intercession will be of any avail.(The Holy Quran, 2: 254)]


(We are superimposing you on your favourite actor’s [Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger] film Last Action Hero here, to swing to and fro from reel to real and vice versa) 

[Spend (in the Cause of Allah) from the provisions that We have given you before death should come to any of you and then he should say, “O my Lord, why did You not reprieve me awhile that I should have given in charity and become of the righteous.” But Allah does not at all reprieve a person when his term comes to an end, and Allah is well aware of what you all do.—The Holy Quran, 63:10]

We are also remembering your senior Colleague Sri Mithun Chakraborty, who had set a precedence in the same type of case (though that was a Ponzi Scheme, we are here talking about an AAA rated company).

We do not expect the following type of false allegations against our beloved Baadshah, जो दिलों पर राज करते हैं:

Shah Rukh Khan IIPM Controversy, SRK will be jailed in IIPM case? How SRK is linked with IIPM? (As reported on Sep 13, 2019©Study IQ Education)

Moreover, we do not wish to involve our Arthur Dent to be treated under the Consumer Protection Act, 2019 for “False and Misleading Advertisements” by violating the rights of consumers.

Lastly, this is sorry to inform you that we are begging for our own hardearned money and we have no other way but “fanā ho jaanā”.   

We are waiting for your positive assurance as a DHFL Brand Ambassador.

dil huā kasmakash-e-chāra-e-zehmat meñ tamām

miT gayā ghisne meñ is uqde kā vā ho jaanā

the struggle to resolve its woes, my weakened heart unmade

in trying to undo the knot, it got completely frayed
