There is too much debate going on Aamir Khan. His comments have been regarded as Anti-Nationalist and he is facing backlash. The intolerance debate is taking new twists and turns every time. Aamir Khan has clarified himself but the Social Network is not ready to accept him anyway. But before saying all these, it is important to quote Aamir Khan on the intolerance issue.
To complete my answer that there is a sense of fear more than there was earlier. I do feel there is a sense of insecurity. When I sit at home and talk to Kiran. (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… growing sense of despondency. You feel depressed, you feel low.. why is it happening? This feeling exists in me too.
He has expressed the concerns of his wife, like most of the mothers in India do. Even if people make it as an intolerable comment on intolerance, then few acts do not really justify.
People are using hashtag #SayNotoSnapDeal and giving Snapdeal Rating 1. There is no point in disowning a brand for the brand ambassador. Opinions differ but that does not mean that something should be targeted for no reason. There are appeals in the Social Media to avoid brands endorsed by him. There is little political motive that can be drawn as he is an apolitical person.
To end to the debate, it is important to mention, that Aamir Khan Comments did not take any attention in International media. However, the backlash that he has faced has grabbed many eyeballs. Many leading newspapers are pointing it as Intolerance.
There is no harm in having some opinion, but to take it to another level and tag it with Anti-National Sentiments do not really go with any ethics.
