Actor Aamir Khan today joined the chorus of intelligentsia against growing ‘intolerance’ and said that he has been “alarmed” by a number of incidents, and that his wife Kiran Rao even suggested that they should probably leave the country.
Should we move out of India, Kiran Rao asks Aamir Khan due to rising intolerance.
Aamir Khan in the interview said that there is growing sense of despondency in India. He stated in the last 6 months that India is unsafe for Kiran and his kids due to growing intolerance. He says he feels depressed on what’s happened recently and that he’s afraid to read newspapers.
Trying dehyphenate the acts of terror across the world from religion, actor Aamir Khan on Monday, speaking at the eighth Ramnath Goenka Awards, said, “When you see a person committing violence, the first mistake we make is labeling them Islamic terrorist/Hindu terrorist. This is wrong.”
Asked to respond why he doesn’t think it’s right to link terror with Islam when Paris attackers were seen holding the Quran, the actor said, “A person killing with the Quran in his hand might think he is Muslim, but he is not. He’s just a terrorist.”
