The ruling party also reminded Khan that his last movie 'PK' was a resounding box office success despite protests by some right wing outfits, stressing that it was a example of how tolerant Indian society is.
     
Some isolated examples, however, extreme are exceptions to India's inherent tolerant nature. It would be unfortunate to let isolated examples be taken as a norm that define India.
    
"Our Constitution guarantees freedom of expression and Aamir Khan like any citizen is entitled to his personal opinion. Any one who disagrees with him also enjoys the same freedom", BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said.

Taking a dig at Khan's comment at an award ceremony yesterday that his wife Kiran Rao had wondered if they should move out of India, he said many people chose to settle abroad
for various reasons, including education, career, business and taxation.
     
"This is an individual choice. There is no constitutional bar on it", he said. Kohli also noted that President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have spoken on multiple occasions about the norms that define India.
