Aamir Khan Official Statement on 'Intolerance' Controversy.

Aamir Khan has fallen in 'intolerance' controversy recently in Ramnath Goenka Awards held in Delhi over the ongoing issue of growing intolerance in the country. His comment are twisted and only few parts are shown to media. Thus, a big nation wide controversy has erupted. Finally he has come clean on the issue and released an official statement. 

Official Statement from Aamir Khan:

"First let me state categorically that neither I, nor my wife Kiran, have any intention of leaving the country. We never did, and nor would we like to in the future. Anyone implying the opposite has either not seen my interview or is deliberately trying to distort what I have said. India is my country, I love it, I feel fortunate for being born here, and this is where I am staying.

Secondly, I stand by everything that I have said in my interview.

To all those people who are calling me anti-national, I would like to say that I am proud to be Indian, and I do not need anyone's permission nor endorsement for that.

To all the people shouting obscenities at me for speaking my heart out, it saddens me to say you are only proving my point.

To all the people who have stood by me, thank you. We have to protect what this beautiful and unique country of ours really stands for. We have to protect its integrity, diversity, inclusiveness, its many languages, its culture, its history, its tolerance, it's concept of ekantavada, it's love, sensitivity and its emotional strength.

I would like to end my statement with a poem by Rabindranath Tagore, it's a prayer really:

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high,
Where knowledge is free,
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments,
by narrow domestic walls,
Where words come out from the depth of truth,
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection,
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way,
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit,
Where the mind is led forward by thee,
Into ever-widening thought and action,
Into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.

Jai Hind."

    2. Dear Mr. SK Imran, have maturity to understand that this issue is not about any political party or any religion. It's about love for our nation. Are you not proud to be an Indian?
      If a terrorist is a Muslim, that doesn't mean whole Muslim community are terrorist, similarly, acts of few idiot doesn't make the whole nation Intolerant.
      But I'm sure you wont understand these things, because this is too much for your brain.

  6. Aamir khan's statement was a very stupid one. If you're not proud of india mr aamir khan then you are free to leave india and go to some other country.

  8. It is known very well that these Bollywood websites and several media houses are under the direct influence of the underworld which made these stupid khans such big stars. Most of the commentators also show who are dominating these websites. But one thing is sure this time this dirty man of dubious links has crossed all the limits and will have to bear the brunt of the nation. India will be a better place without such traitors.

  9. I love my country & i am proud Indian but it doesn't mean if something is going wrong in our country and someone like true Indian Aamir khan raised his voice against it, I should abuse him.

    Aamir khan's statement is something close to ground level reality and it's a fact large selection of people are facing it.

    We live in a largest democracy, then our heart should be larger to accept every one voice.

  10. Our flag has three colors. Problem is that some people want to see only one color but fact is that there is a tricolor.
    Hamara desh ki khubshurti different religion, language, communities me h, just like tricolor.

    Agar intolerant ho kar har statements pe bina reality ko jaane, kuchh seconds me, sabse pahle comments karna jaante ho to sabki feelings, voice, advice ko accept karna bhi seekh.

    Agar Aamir khan galat h to jo log auditorium me baithe uski baat pe clapping kar rhe the wo bhi galat h

    Agar Aamir khan galat h to hamare desh ki media bhi galat h jo statement kisi ka bhi hoga reaction lene har baar kuchh bhakts k pass sabse pahle jaati h trp k liye.

    Please be Indian, respect every Indian, understand every Indian, feel every Indian.
    #JaiHind
