New Delhi, Jan. 15 (ANI): With the debate on intolerance refusing to subdue, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday added fuel to the fire by welcoming its leader Ram Madhav’s remark asking Bollywood star Aamir Khan to preach to his wife about India’s prestige.
When asked to comment on Madhav’s remark, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told ANI, “He has given a good suggestion. With the political battle over tolerance and intolerance is being waged, some advice has been given.”
Madhav had courted controversy yesterday after he said that Aamir should not only preach to an auto-rickshaw driver about India’s prestige but also to his wife.
“It will not work that you preach to an auto wallah how the country’s prestige has to be saved but not tell the same to your own wife,” Madhav had said at Delhi’s SGBT Khalsa College.
In November, Aamir had expressed alarm and despondency over the rise in cases displaying intolerance in the last six to eight months.
He had said that a sense of ‘insecurity’ and ‘fear’ had seeped deep within society.
“When I go home and talk to Kiran (Aamir’s wife), for the first time she says, ‘Should we move out of India?'” Khan said. (ANI)
