Mumbai: Police in Mumbai have filed a case against Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan for allegedly making comments about Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), but the actor claimed it was a writing error and not a view that he believed in.

"We have registered an FIR (first information report) against Shah Rukh Khan after we received an application from an advocate who alleged that the actor made some statements hurting the sentiments of Muslims," said senior police inspector of Bandra police station, Prakash George.

The complaint was registered against the star and the publisher of the magazine in which the purported remarks were published. "Complainant Khalid Babu Querishi alleged that in the July issue of the Time and Style magazine, Shah Rukh used objectionable language against the Prophet which was unacceptable," George said.

The case was registered under section 295-a (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious sentiments) and 34 (acts done by several persons with common interest) of IPC.

In a message, the actor who is currently abroad shooting for Karan Johar's My Name is Khan, said that there was no more an important figure in history than Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). "Being a Muslim and standing up for the tenets of Islam is my most important agenda," he said.
