BJP backs Ram Madhav's remark on Aamir Khan
New Delhi: The Bhartaiya Janta party has welcomed its leader Ram Madhav `s remark asking Bollywood star Aamir Khan to preach to his wife about India`s prestige.
“He has given a good suggestion. With the political battle over tolerance and intolerance is being waged, some advice has been given," Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told ANI today.
Ram Madhav on Thursday denounced actor Aamir Khan's remarks on 'intolerance', saying he should not preach only to an auto-rickshaw driver about country's prestige but also his wife.
Madhav also said the government will ensure that in future no need arises for 'award-wapasi', and asserted that there will be no compromise on the security of the country's borders and self respect.
In an apparent dig at Khan, who recently courted controversy over his remarks on perceived intolerance in the country, Madhav said, "It will not work that you preach to an auto wallah how country's prestige has to be saved but not tell the same to your own wife".
In November, Aamir had expressed alarm and despondency over the rise in cases displaying intolerance in the last six to eight months.He had said that a sense of `insecurity` and `fear` had seeped deep within society.
"When I go home and talk to Kiran (Aamir`s wife), for the first time she says, `Should we move out of India?`" Khan said.
