Headlines were made by Bollywood actor Aamir Khan after creating a statement on ‘intolerance’. Plenty of interest was brought by the statement. Some showed solidarity with all the performer while the performer was slammed by many others for making such comments.
Many artistes and politicians also discussed their views about the same being critical of the performer or supporting.
Aamir stated his wife just proved what he’d said of the problem in the united states and that while he stood by the interview that triggered an enormous row, the influx of criticism directed at him.
“Anyone implying the opposite has either not seen my interview or is deliberately trying to distort what I have said.
“India is my country, I love it, I feel fortunate for being born here, and this is where I am staying,” the 50-year-old celebrated actor said.
“Secondly, I stand by everything that I have said in my interview.
“To all those people who are calling me anti-national, I would like to say that I am proud to be Indian, and I do not need anyone’s permission or endorsement for that.
“To all the people shouting obscenities at me for speaking my heart out, it saddens me to say you are only proving my point.
“To all the people who have stood by me, thank you. We have to protect what this beautiful and unique country of ours really stands for. We have to protect its integrity, diversity, inclusiveness, its many languages, its culture, its history, its tolerance, it’s concept of ‘ekantavada’, it’s love, sensitivity and its emotional strength.”
