Bengaluru, Nov. 25 : Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday continued his tirade against the government over Bollywood actor Aamir Khan’s remark on growing intolerance in the nation, saying it disturbs him as an Indian.
“I do not like what is going on with regard to intolerance. It disturbs me as an Indian. Your principal told me today that women feel uncomfortable walking on the streets. It’s imposing your will on somebody. It’s just bullying,” said Gandhi.
“It’s very unpleasant and not going to do good for the country,” he added while interacting with the students of Mount Carmel College here.
Gandhi further said it’s always better to listen to someone who has an issue instead of ‘blanket attacking them’.
“Shouting at people is very very easy. But it is much more powerful to listen to someone. Hating someone is very easy; loving someone is a much more powerful thing to do. I feel the more conversation, the better, the less nastiness, the better, the less hatred, the better,” he added.
Voicing his support for Aamir, the Congress vice-president had yesterday said that the government should not ‘bully or threaten’ the people who question them.
“Instead of branding all those who question the Govt and Modiji- as unpatriotic, anti national or ‘motivated’, the Govt would do better to reach out to people to understand what’s disturbing them. That’s the way to solve problems in India- not by bullying, threatening & abusing!” he tweeted. (ANI)
