A complaint was filed in a court here today against film star Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao under various sections including sedition over his remarks on intolerance.
The complaint was filed by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Sushma Trivedi.
The court fixed December one for hearing into the matter.
Ojha stated in the complaint that he felt hurt hearing Aamir’s remarks.
The complaint was filed under sections 153 (A),(B) and 124 (A). 153 (A) pertains to promoting enemity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language etc and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony.
153 (B) relates to imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration and Section 124 (A) relates to sedition.
Khan found himself in the eye of a raging storm after he commented last Monday in a programme, “Kiran and I have lived all our life in India. For the first time, she said, should we move out of India…She fears for her child, she fears about what the atmosphere around us will be.”
