Twitter’s “intolerance” for Aamir Khan’s statement


After the beginning of the Indian twitter era, there have been instances of celebrity fights, freedom of speech debates, and the spree of unwanted suggestions that have fuel to the already raging fire.

Internet’s latest prey, Aamir Khan has been in the news for talking about what his wife thought was best for their family. Talking about growing intolerance without mentioning anything about the management system, Khan managed to take twitter on fire with his recent statement.

Khan, while conversing with Anant Goenka said, “When I chat with Kiran at home, she says, ‘Should we move out of India?’ That’s a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make. She fears for her child. She fears what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers every day that does indicate that there is this sense of growing disquiet, there is growing despondency apart from alarm.”

Questioning his remark of intolerance, Anupam Kher sent out a series of tweets addressed to the Ghajini actor reminding him about India, the country that made him “The Aamir Khan”.

In no time, a mere statement made by the actor turned into a political debate on Twitter with fans picking sides either of BJP or supporting the former. In the midst of this chaotic and messy situation, there is still no word from the host of Satyameva Jayate. With twitteratis going all gaga, many decided to stop watching Aamir’s movies in theatres and banning Snapdeal, as the actor is the ambassador of the brand.

Cloning Aamir’s statement and defending him other politicians like Arvind Kejriwal and, RPN Singh joined in the conversation.

With many social media users treating this as a serious matter, there are others who managed to turn this into a chucklesome subject.

Actually, he is still pretty keen on ‘Bharat Chhodo’.
