What Aamir Khan is saying, whole world is saying: Cong

New Delhi,November 24: Coming in support of Bollywood star Aamir Khan's remarks on intolerance, Congress today said what the actor is saying, the whole world is saying and asked the current dispensation to pay heed to the message.

"What Aamir Khan, one of the most respected actor, has said in the presence of many senior BJP people is what the whole world is saying, all of India is saying, all right- minded people are saying," Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said. 

Khan, at an award ceremony yesterday, had said that he was "alarmed" by a number of incidences and his wife Kiran Rao had wondered if they should move out of India, 

He also virtually supported those returning their awards, saying one of the ways for creative people to express their dissatisfaction or disappointment is to return their awards.

Taking a dig at BJP, Singhvi said Khan should not be branded as a Congress man for raising the intolerance issue.

"I only hope and trust that he will not be referred to as a Congress man. I will only hope and trust he will not be referred to in derogatory terms," the Rajya Sabha MP said.
