On Monday, by joining the debate, ‘rising intolerance’ Aamir Khan has claimed that his wife is feeling insecure over the rising issue of intolerance in India. Kiran Rao, the spouse of Aamir Khan, has an opinion to move away from the country to escape their kids from this climate.
While speaking at the Award show, ‘Ramnath Goenka’ that was sponsored by The Indian Express Group, Aamir has raised the issue of intolerance with such sorrowful feelings that have been developed for the last 6-8 years. “Important that those in power strongly condemn what’s wrong.” He exposed his wife’s views about the rising issue of intolerance over India as,
“(Wife) Kiran and I have lived all our lives in India. For the first time, she said, should we move out of India? That’s a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make to me. She fears for her child. She fears about what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers every day. That does indicate that there is a sense of growing disquiet.”
He further mentioned that the writers, novelists or other intellectuals who have just returned their awards, are following the footsteps of Dadri gangs and doing the murder of the rationalists in some way. “For creative people, to voice what they feel is important. A number of creative people – historians and scientists – have increasingly had a certain feeling that they feel they need to express. One of the ways of expressing their dissatisfaction or disappointment is to return awards.”
Khan has claimed, “Historians, scientists have had a view to express. Returning awards is one way of getting your point across,” he added, “Everyone has the right to protest.” He asserted that he is supporting those protestants who did the protest by following the non-violent rules.
A couple of days ago, the air of Paris has been filled with the terrorists’ attacks and with the sounds of firing on the concert. After the consequences received, Khan wanted to separate this incident from the religious base terrorism by saying that “I don’t think any religion teaches killing of people.”
The growing situation of the previous 6 – 8 months, Khan has been alarmed by it. He shared his ideas, “As an individual, as a citizen, certainly I have also been alarmed, I can’t deny it, by a number of incidents,” he added, “For us, as Indians, to feel a sense of security, two-three things are important. The sense of justice gives a lot of security to the common man. The second thing, that is important, are the people who are the elected representatives, at the state level or the level of the Centre… when people take law in their own hands, we look upon these representatives to take a strong stance, make strong statements and speed up the legal process to prosecute such cases. It doesn’t matter who the ruling party is.”
