Supporting Aamir Khan, Rahul Gandhi tweeted, "Instead of branding all those who question the Government & Modiji - as unpatriotic, anti-national or 'motivated' the Govt would do better to reach out to people to understand what's disturbing them.

"In a succession of tweets, Rahul Gandhi said, "That's the way to solve problems in India - not by bullying, threatening & abusing!" Speaking at the Ramnath Goenka Awards ceremony in the national capital yesterday, Aamir Khan said, "For the last six to eight months, there has been a growing despondency I would say. Kiran and I have lived all our life in India. When I sit at home and talk to Kiran, for the first time she said, 'Should we move out of India?' Now that's a very disastrous and a big comment to make to me."

The actor went on to say that "She fears for her child, she fears for the atmosphere around us, she feels scared to open the newspapers every day. That indicates there is a sense of growing disquiet, despondency apart from alarm."

Earlier, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted in support of the actor and appreciated him for raising his voice on the issue.
