Aamir Khan has correctly highlighted the issue of rehabilitation. He has made it clear that he is not against the dam or people of Gujarat. Politicians should understand that every issue cannot be blown out of proportion for political mileage.
It’s unbelievable that Fanaa’s release is being blocked by the BJP in Gujarat because Aamir Khan said that the Narmada oustees should be rehabilitated. He has said nothing wrong or even politically incorrect. There was no anti Gujarat slogan in Aamir’s beliefs. The BJP seem to be making a hullabaloo about nothing.
Aamir comes across as a seasoned politician who takes up issues that are in the limelight and uses them to his advantage. Why doesn’t he just join a political party so that he can start really doing something for the causes he holds dear, apart from making it to the news?
If Aamir has a view he should be allowed to express it. But his lack of sincerity is evident in his staying away from all the controversy that get created on reports of malpractices of MNCs like Coke. Ever heard him speak up for the farmers who are left wothout resources when Coke factories have to be set up in rural areas?
What knowledge society?
The government was advised to implement reservations in a phased manner It is impossible to achieve a 27 per cent seat increase without jeopardising infrastructure and quality. The youth cannot be blamed for taking things into their own hands when their futures are being threatened.
The euphoria about reservations will lead to healthy competition being replaced with rivalry
and hatred. Politicians should be kept away from education.
