When wife Kiran suggested Aamir to move out of India


Perfectionist Aamir Khan joined the debate of today’s burning issue ‘Growing Intolerance in India’ at the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards and during conversation, he revealed that wife Kiran is highly worried about the present situation of the country and she even suggested Aamir to move out of India. To some extent, Aamir Khan supported fraternities returning their awards.

"As an individual, as part of this country as a citizen, we read in the papers what is happening, we see it on the news and certainly, I have been alarmed. I can't deny. I have been alarmed by a number of incidents," he said while speaking here at the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards.

The actor too feels in the past six to eight months the sense of insecurity and fear has grown up. The actor said for any society, it is important to have a sense of security and sense of justice. Taking potshots at politicians, he said, "... People who are our elected representatives, people who we select to look after us for five years, state or centre... when people take law into their hands, we look upon these people to take a strong stance, to make a strong statement, speed up the legal process, when we see that happening there is a sense of security but when we don't see that happening there is a sense of insecurity."

He says returning awards is one way of expressing their dissatisfaction,"A number of creative people -- historians, scientists -- increasingly had a certain feeling in them, which they felt they need to express. For creative people, one of the ways of expressing their dissatisfaction or their disappointment is to return their awards. I think that's one way of getting your point across," he said.

When asked whether he endorsed the protests by the people, Aamir said he would as long as it is non-violent as "all individuals have a right to protest and they can protest in any manner that they feel is right as long as they are not taking the law into their hands."
