For the past few days Kangana Ranaut has been targeting many celebrities over different topics. Recently Kangana Ranaut posted an old interview of Aamir Khan where the actor is talking about Islam. In her tweet Kangana claimed that ‘Aamir is an extremist and despite his wife being a Hindu his children would only follow Islam’.
According to an investigation done by a media house the interview on which Kangana has based his tweet is completely false and it was generated from an unreliable website.
Kangana wrote in Hindi, “@Aamir_khan You were supposed to be the most tolerant individual, since when have you become so intolerant towards Hinduism? Hindu mothers give birth to children who have the blood of Shri Krishna, Shri Ram running through their veins. They carry forward the legacy of the Sanatan dharma and Indian civilisation. Why should they just follow Islam?”
While the investigation found out that the interview which was published in 2012 on a website called ‘Tanqeed.com’ purportedly quoted Aamir Khan as saying “I had made it very clear that my kids will always follow only Islamic religion”.
An archived version of the same was found on a website called ‘Santa Banta’ but there was no reliable source.
What makes the claim fake is the findings on an 2016 aired episode of India TV’s show Aap Ki Adalat where Aamir referred to the interview and said that someone had made up the interview in his name when he had never said anything like that.
Well, an old ‘fake news’ is being clearly used to spread propaganda against the actor.
