Aamir urges PM to rein in people spreading hatred
Days after his intolerance remarks, Bollywood star Aamir Khan on Saturday said India is “very tolerant” but there are people who spread hatred and appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to rein them in.
The actor also believes that he still continues to be country’s brand ambassador even though the government may have discontinued his services, saying India is his mother and not a brand.
“Our country is very tolerant, but there are people who spread ill-will...Those who speak of breaking up this vast country, such people are present in all religions, only Modiji can stop them. After all, Modiji is our PM, we have to tell him,” he said during an interview with a Tv channel.
Aamir said a sense of security comes from the justice system, which should ensure speedy justice, and from elected representatives who should raise voice when something goes wrong.
