Aamir Khan is the latest celebrity to have joined the debate on intolerance by saying that he is alarmed by the shocking incidents happening in the country in recent times. But this has been criticised by maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma.

Ram Gopal Varma, via his Twitter account, hit out at the intolerance statement made by Aamir Khan and said that majority of the citizens are not intolerant if a predominantly Hindu country can make three Muslims as the three biggest superstars of our times, referring to the three Khans (Aamir, Salman and Shah Rukh).

The ace director says that isolated incidents cannot be taken as a sign of intolerance and the super stardom of the Muslims are proof enough of the vast majority's tolerance. Below are the series of tweets he posted:

Intolerence is being debated not bcoz of vast majority of Hindus,but bcoz of a minuscule minority of rabble rousers in both

The fact is that the vast majority connect only to individuals deeds and generalised hard feelings are nothing but juvenile noises

If u are really feeling like a family and there's a problem in the family,family members in public wont say theres intolerance in the family

It's the celebs need for creating drawing room debates to increase their popularity which flares up non existent negativity btwn communities

Isn't Aamir,Sharuk,Salman,3 Muslims becoming biggest stars of a Hindu country proof enough that india is tolerant?

Isolated incidents cant be taken as sign of intolerance and the super stardom of 3 Muslims is proof enough of the vast majority's tolerance

Some celebs complaining about Intolerance should be the last ones to complain becos they became celebs in a so called intolerant country

In a predominantly Hindu country,if 3 Muslims can become the biggest iconic super stars that itself proves the majority aren't intolerant

The problem with today's times is that we are drowning in information and starving for wisdom
