'Aamir Khan's Comment on 'Intolerance' Alarmist,' Says BJP
New Delhi: Actor Aamir Khan's comment that he felt "alarmed" by a number of incidents in the country and that his wife had even suggested that they should leave the country has triggered a major controversy.
  • Instead of branding all those who question the government and Modiji- as unpatriotic, anti national or 'motivated', the Governmet would do better to reach out to people to understand what's disturbing them. That is the way to solve problems in India - not by bullying, threatening and abusing.

    Rahul Gandhi, Congress Vice President

  • 'Can't take the exception to be the rule. Can't be alarmist.'
