The 16 year old Dangal girl Zaira Wasim, reportedly was forced to issue an apology letter to the Kashmiri fundamentalists for simply acting – which apparently has polluted Kashmir. (You decide how this would be possible?). Aamir Khan who is known to be selective of his intolerance remarks, did not condemn the hidden pressure or show support and solidarity for the young and courageous girl. Instead he tried to play down, saying “I have read it and can understand… blah blah blah. I appeal to leave her alone…” So is Aamir Khan a hypocrite or is he only interested in the movie commercial prospects? Well there was deafening silence and no support whatsoever towards the 16 year old from the secular mainstream media.

As if India does not know how to handle its internal issues, USA has raised concern about the rising intolerance and violence in India and about such things as cow protection groups and vigilante, and welfare of dalits, etc. USA has enough problems, such as one in three African-Americans (or Blacks) have seen jail sentences, the vast majority of those in jails are blacks and immigrants, there is growing gun violence, social problems and on and on. May be they should save their energies for their own problems.
