AR Rahman backs Aamir

NEW DELHI – Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman on Tuesday said he agreed with Bollywood star Aamir Khan’s statement on growing intolerance in India and explained that he too faced a similar situation a few months ago, The Economic Times reported on Wednesday.Speaking at the 46th International Film Festival of India, Rahman said he too had faced intolerance and insisted that people should not be violent in a civilised society. “I had gone through something similar a couple of months ago. Nothing should be violent. We’re all ultra-civilised people and we should show the world that we are the best civilisation,” the composer said.On artists returning their awards in protest against rising intolerance, he said, “Everything should be done classily. I feel what people are doing is very poetic. We should set an example for the world because we come from the land of Mahatma Gandhi; he has shown how a revolution can have an impact without any violence.”
