It seems the Government of India has taken the remarks made by actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan on the rising intolerance in the country very seriously (and why not). Reports say thatAamir Khan, who has been the brand ambassador of the Incredible India campaign by the government for many years now, has been removed from the ‘post’. The Ministry of Tourism it seems has taken Aamir Khan’s casual remarks of feeling like leaving the country to heart and has allegedly removed the actor as brand ambassador of the Incredible India campaign.

Aamir had made the comment in November 2015 at an event organised by The Indian Express, where upon being asked about intolerance, he had said that his wife Kiran Rao was wondering if they should ‘leave the country’ with their child Azad Rao Khan. There was a furore in the country after these seemingly casual remarks by Aamir Khan, with Twitterati slamming him and various organisations and the ruling Bharatiya  Janata Party (BJP) members making adverse remarks in turn.

India.com had also taken a stand and wondered why Aamir Khan was so scared of the situation when it was not that alarming as it was made out to be. Why then was he quiet when terrorists struck in Jammu and Kashmir, or in Mumbai during the 26/11 terrorists attacks. (ALSO READ: Aamir Khan leaves India, spotted at international airport in Mumbai!
