Title:Aamir Khan on intolerance: I am alarmed, my wife suggested moving out of India

News Paper

NEW DELHI: Actor Aamir Khan on Monday joined the debate over "rising intolerance" in India, saying his wife Kiran Rao had asked if they should move out of the country, as she feared for the safety of their children in a climate of insecurity.

He was speaking at the Ramnath Goenka Awards function of The Indian Express Group. Khan said there was an increased sense of despondency over the past 6-8 months and that he was alarmed by it. "Important that those in power strongly condemn what's wrong," Khan said, backing writers and intellectuals who have returned their awards following the Dadri lynching and the murder of rationalists.

"Historians, scientists have had a view to express. Returning awards is one way of getting your point across," said the 50-year -old actor, who has been awarded the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan. "Everyone has the right to protest," he said, adding that he supported any protest that was non-violent.

Last year, Khan's film 'PK', which took an irreverent look at organized religion, was a box-office blockbuster. It remains Bollywood's biggest grosser worldwide.
