The latest participant in the debate about growing intolerance, Aamir Khan is being slammed for his comments. Khan had, on 23 November, expressed alarm at a growing number of incidents fueled by intolerance. His wife Kiran Rao had suggested that they leave the country, the actor had revealed.

Actor Anupam Kher had criticised Khan and said he should try to spread "hope" and not fear. Now Bollywood actor and BJP MP Paresh Rawal has also spoken out against Khan.

Rawal took to microblogging site Twitter to slam Khan. In a series of tweets, he said that Aamir's hit movie PK may have mocked the beliefs of Hindus but the actor did not face the wrath of the "majority".

Rawal also spoke about patriotism and asked Aamir Khan to stay back in the country and change the situation.

Khan had also lent his support to those returning their awards in protest of alleged intolerance. The actor said returning awards was one way for creative people to express their dissatisfaction or disappointment.
