FIR against Aamir, wife Kiran Rao over intolerance remark

An FIR has been lodged today against perfectionist Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao for the actor’s remark on intolerance. The FIR was lodged by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district.

The FIR against Khan and his wife was filed at Town police station in Muzaffarpur district by advocate Ojha under sections 153 (Wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc), 153B (Imputations, assertions prejudicial to national-integration) and 154 (Sedition) of IPC.

The FIR was registered on chief judicial magistrate, Muzaffarpur district, Sushma Trivedi's direction. Ojha claimed that the actor's intolerance statement has hurt the sentiments of the people. 

The ‘PK’ actor speaking at an event had said that a sense of insecurity and fear has gripped the society and his wife Kiran Rao is so anxious that she even suggested they move out of the country. Aamir in a way was supporting the group of intelligentsia who had been returning their honours and awards in protest.

This very statement of Aamir’s divided the nation into two and it invited huge criticism.
