Aamir Khan joins chorus against intolerance

মঙ্গলবার, ২৪ নভেম্বর ২০১৫

24 November 2015 Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has joined the rising chorus of protest against growing "intolerance" in India.

Khan said his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao had even suggested leaving the country.

Khan told a journalism awards ceremony that he was "alarmed" over the rise in acts of intolerance in the "last six to eight months".

Earlier this month fellow superstar Shahrukh Khan also spoke out against what he called "extreme intolerance" in India.

A movement that began with writers returning state awards has spread to scientists, historians and filmmakers.

They have cited the killing of rationalists MM Kalburgi and Govind Pansare, as well as the lynching of a man over suspicions he consumed beef, as examples of rising intolerance in the country.

Actor, director and producer Khan told a ceremony organised by The Indian Express newspaper that a sense of "insecurity" and "fear" had been growing in India.

"(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," Khan was quoted as saying by the newspaper.
