Reacting against actor Aamir Khan’s statement on “unsafe India”, members of Jan Shakti organisation staged a protest in front deputy commissioner’s office and burnt actor’s effigy here on Tuesday. Members also raised slogans against the actor.

It is pertinent to mention that Aamir Khan issued this remark during the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards in New Delhi on Tuesday. On this, his wife Kiran Rao said, “Should we move out of India?”

Organisation president Moti Bhanot said, “We strongly condemn the remarks given by the actor and his wife. It is only this country that has endowed him and his wife with name and fame. Such statements are not expected of someone of his stature. In our bid to express our outrage, we have burnt actor’s effigy and also demand an apology from him.”

“He has challenged the unity and integrity of our country. He is free to do whatever he pleases. But, we demand that he should tender an apology for making such remarks,” rued Bhanot.

It is pertinent to mention here that the veteran actor is in Ludhiana district for the past over a month now for the shooting of his upcoming movie ‘Dangal’.
