the debacle of opinion. One opinion that has messed with the country right now
is that Aamir Khan's wife thinks that our country is going intolerant. As
Paresh Rawal rightly once said: "Patni hai ki Panauti hai". Even snapdeal is feeling the heat
of the Dil ki deal it did with Aamir.
Statement like these implicate that the minority is scared of the conservative(right wing)
government. The elite Media has created an environment that is
trying to create an opinion among the citizens of India that since the BJP has
come to power it means that the minorities will suffer. I think that the
conservative government in India is more liberal than the liberal wing(if there
is one) in the nations controlled by these minorities.
said that, quoting Joey "It’s a Moo
Point". We should not make this comparison because we are Indians and the
day we start comparing ourselves to these nation all hope will be lost. India
is and has been a tolerant country and everyone should stick to this fact. We
have been an tolerant nation since long and that’s the reason we co-exist even after
being such a diverse nation. Our country is a like the world of Marvel where we
have many people of influence who do not agree on everything but eventually
work for the better. We have even accommodated Hulk ideologies in our society
and still we are intolerant. Misquoting LFMAO famous song: I am an Indian and I
know it. And I am proud of it.
I believe that bulk of
the Indian media is liberal (left) which is giving unnecessary air to these
unrelated events of intolerance. If you discuss the same thing all day long it
feels that our country is very bad and everything is going wrong. I totally
agree that these things should be condemned and people have a right to protest
in a non-violent way but making it the talking agenda portrays all of us Indian
as Intolerant.Which we are not. It's like Mundunglus Fletcher's acts defining
what Order of Phoenix stands for, which is outright wrong and ridiculous.
Aamir Khan said is his opinion and there might be a reason for him feeling that
way. He has even given a clarifying position on his stand.I think he deeply cares about the country and has exercised his right to free speech effectively in the past to raise the issues he cares about deeply. Even after doing everything he could for the Nights Watch Jon Snow was stabbed by his brothers after taking a stand that was better for the seven kingdom but did not sit well with his own brothers. Apparently he knew nothing of how his brothers might react. Extreme opinion and actions never serve any good.
problem I have is with the greed of the people. The greed of the politicians, big media
houses and big corporations for money and power and their use of religion to
meet this purpose. Religion has been used long and in many instances by people
in position to manipulate the commons to meet their purpose. Why don’t we learn
from history (its right in front of our eyes). I guess it is human tendency to
believe what others say rather than checking facts for themselves before
forming an opinion. The most dangerous opinion are the ones that are based on
wrong facts. I believe India being an intolerant nation is one such opinion.
