West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee extended her full support to Bollywood actor Aamir Khan. She said no one has rights to tell someone to move out of this country as it belongs to everyone.
Aamir Khan on Monday in an event expressed his views on intolerance in the country and also talked about the secularism of the country. He faced several criticisms from various groups of people, some said him to quit India.
During the award ceremony he had stated '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.'
'Nobody can say anything against them in this country. They will decide what we will say or not. Aamir has said something what he felt and what his wife told him, he just said that. He is being asked to leave the country. Who are you to ask someone to leave this country This country belongs to everyone. This is our motherland,' Mamta Banerjee said.
Many people supported him and says it was everyone's right to express their views. When we hear full conversations we can able to judge about why he had said this. Many Bollywood actors opposed his speech and attacked him through words in social media. Some actors, actress and politicians supported him. Among him Farah Khan who supported Aamir Khan in full swing.
Aamir Khan yesterday published his letter to public on his social media pages. He had written 'To all the people who are calling me anti-national, I would like to say that I am proud to be Indian, and I do not need anyone's permission nor endorsement for that. To all the people shouting obscenities at me for speaking my heart out, it saddens me to say you are only proving my point.'
