Dear Aamir, Why do you choose to display a Tolerant Kashmir but an Intolerant India?

Dear Aamir Khan,

I am a Kashmiri Pandit, a story of whom you choose in your Satyamev Jayate to show how tolerant Kashmiri Muslim society is by showing a rare example of a KP woman elected by a KM majority village. I have to ask you, how come Kashmir is a tolerant society even after Kashmiris massacred, raped and made 300,000 Kashmiri Pandits homeless and how come India suddenly is intolerant?

How come you choose to pick up a rare KP story to show cause the tolerance of Kashmir and rare intolerance stories from India made entire country intolerant? Why these double standards?

If India today is intolerant, then Kashmir is Hell. But you won’t say that. Right? You will rather project a tolerant Kashmiriyat and an Intolerant India.

My mother, my father, our family & friends, No one absolutely no-one till date suggested or must have thought of leaving India because of INTOLERANCE we faced in Kashmir which your Bollywood remained silent about.

A country which even after 26 years neglects us and an unfortunate incident like Dadri gets more attention than 300,000 Homeless Kashmiri Pandits.

Aamir Khan
You clapped for a “tolerant” Kashmir, but cry for an intolerant India?

When we Kashmiri Pandits faced Genocide in India and when our own neighbors were with guns on streets against us, demolishing our temples, burning our homes, raping us – India remained silent. So who should be thinking about leaving India – we living in migrant camps or you making millions in Intolerant India? Even if we face genocide again, we will never think or talk about leaving India.

Let me tell you those neighbors & rioters were Muslims. Such was an intolerant Indian living inside me that you, a Muslim, were my super star, my role model, a person I would fight for with my friends, a person I looked up to. If India was intolerant and if I was intolerant, I would have generalized the community and never made you my role model. I will never do that, that is not how tolerant India is, never will it be.

Even after 26 years, we haven’t given up on India. Each day we think on how to make it a better place. Each day we think that Indians will come forward to help. That India is not what we faced in India. Those neighbors and friends don’t represent the minority population of India nor do you.

I didn’t question your double standards when you questioned going to a Hindu temple and then yourself went happily to Hajj. I should have. But I was too tolerant.

I just wanted to tell you that I am restless, I am restless not because I am a Narendra Modi supporter, I am restless because I regret that I wasted my two decades for a man who was not worth being my Hero. I will never forget that. Never ever.

Best of Luck for Dangal.

Yours
