Lyon, Aug 27 (IBNS): Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has agreed to become an Ambassador for INTERPOL's Turn Back Crime campaign in order to promote greater awareness of how one could play a role in preventing crime.

“It’s a very special honour to be a part of INTERPOL’s Turn Back Crime Campaign as an Ambassador. As Mahatma Gandhi once said, ‘I shall not fear anyone on Earth. I shall fear only God. I shall not bear ill will toward anyone. I shall not submit to injustice from anyone. I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering, if I have to.’. We all should believe in this maxim and in whatever way possible resolve not to let unjust people who might threaten us with criminal activity make us fear them. Because I believe we can, we should, and we must stand together against the few who commit crimes against any human being, in whatever form or guise these crimes might take,” Khan was quoted as saying in the INETRPOL website.

Khan joins actor Jackie Chan as an Ambassador for the campaign.

INTERPOL said the campaign has has already garnered support from public figures including footballer Lionel Messi, Formula 1 racing drivers Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen in addition to law enforcement agencies around the world.

INTERPOL’s Turn Back Crime campaign is aimed at raising public awareness that organized crime is often involved in seemingly unrelated crimes.

“Shah Rukh Khan has dedicated his life to making films which reflect the highest level of professionalism and commitment to bringing joy into the lives of hundreds of millions of filmgoers in India and around the world,” said INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.

“We are honoured to have him as an Ambassador for INTERPOL’s global Turn Back Crime campaign and we look forward to seeing how he puts his artistic talents behind this campaign,” concluded the INTERPOL Chief.
