Aamir Khan’s Intolerant Response To India’s Tolerance!

Aamir Khan, one of India’s leading Bollywood actors revealed during a recent press interaction that his wife is scared following a number of cases related to religious intolerance and even suggested leaving India.

‘I have been alarmed. I can’t deny. I have been alarmed by a number of incidents’ he stated.

Kiran Rao, his wife is also said to be alarmed. ‘The sense of insecurity and fear has been growing in India since the past six or eight months’ he added.

Surprisingly, many people from the audience apprectiated it. This is what he exactly said.


When I chat with Kiran at home, she says, ‘Should we move out of India?’ That’s a disastrous and a big statement for Kiran to make.

She fears for her child. She fears about what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers every day.

‘There is this sense of growing disquiet. There is growing despondency apart from alarm. You feel why this is happening, you feel low. That sense does exist in me,’ 50-year-old actor said, adding for any society, it was important to have a sense of security and sense of justice.

Endorsing the move by writers to return their awards to register their protest against the atmosphere of growing intolerance, Aamir said, “for creative people it was important to voice what they feel, adding the ways for creative people to express their dissatisfaction or disappointment is to return their awards.”

Wife suggested we leave India, states Superstar Aamir Khan.


‘A number of creative people – historians, scientists – increasingly had a certain feeling in them, which they felt they need to express’, he said.

When asked whether he endorsed the protests by the people, Aamir said he would as long as it is non-violent as ‘all individuals have a right to protest and they can protest in any manner they feel is right as long as they are not taking the law into their hands’, he concluded.

But many Bollywood celebs were unhappy with Aamir’s statement and even expressed their anger on twitter.

Paresh Rawal and Anupam Kher were one of the first to vent out their anger.


Even the common public lashed out at Aamir Khan and his wife.
