"If Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman, the three biggest stars of the Hindu country "India" are Muslims, I don't understand where the intolerance is. In a predominantly Hindu country, if 3 Muslims can become the biggest iconic super stars that itself proves the majority aren't intolerant. Some celebs complaining about Intolerance should be the last ones to complain because they became celebs in a so called intolerant country. Isolated incidents can't be taken as sign of intolerance and the super stardom of 3 Muslims is proof enough of the vast majority's tolerance. It is the celebs need for creating drawing room debates to increase their popularity which flares up non-existent negativity between communities." (sic)
Anupam Kher also slammed Aamir Khan for his comments. "When did Incredible India become Intolerant India?" he asked.
