Few Weeks back, Bollywood Actor Aamir Khan had given a statement on ‘Intolerance’ and he faced lots of criticism for his ‘Intolerance’ remark. And now an eight-year-old kid from Muzzafarnagar has to say something to Aamir Khan. Read an open letter by him to Aamir Khan:
“Hello Aamir Uncle. 2 days ago, a mob of 1,00,000 (one Lakh) people with beard and skullcaps gathered near my house. I could see them through my window. They were shouting- Maar do, kaat do, jala do, Gustakh e Rasul ki Saza Sir tan se juda, kill Kamlesh Tiwari etc.
Uncle uncle, this was horrific. I couldn’t eat or sleep for two days. I do not feel safe going out since then. Please tell these people that Islam means peace and punishment of a statement can’t be ‘Sir tan se juda’. Tell them that if you can comment on Ram and Krishan Bhagvan in PK, others can comment on prophet.
Since you are a social activist, reformer, fighter of truth (Satyamev Jayate) and champion of tolerance, I am writing to you. Please save me. Please make these 1,00,000 goons who threatened me with their aggression and illegal acts on street in broad day light apologize to me.
Waiting for you Aamir Uncle, counting days.”
