Ashutosh Rana : Criticising Aamir Khan on Intolerance was Wrong


Mumbai: Sangharsh actor Ashutosh Rana stated about Bollywood actor Aamir Khan’s ‘intolerance’ remarks in the country. He said it was wrong to criticise Aamir. He also added that it was important to discuss the reason behind Aamir’s remarks rather than creating a furore over it.

“If someone gives a statement on intolerance, we should discuss it, rather than the person who made the statement. One should not make personal attacks and criticise the man’s achievements for voicing his concern in public,” said Mr Rana. “Aamir has done shows like Satyamev Jayate. We live in a vibrant country and it’s important to understand why a person like Aamir said something like that,” added Mr Rana.

Mr Rana also supported those artistes who have returned their awards as a protest against growing intolerance. He said that it was “wrong to politicise the issue.”

“Did people who return their awards indulge in any kind of violence? People who returned their awards did not resort to any kind of violence. They did not do any riots, burn any trains or organise any kind of rallies or bandhs. Mahatma Gandhi too began civil disobedience. Award Wapsi is not a wrong way to protest. If we will take any event as a politically motivated one, we will digress from the correct path,” he added.
