The Hindu Mahasabha on Tuesday said actor Aamir Khan should move to Pakistan and the “likes of him and Shah Rukh Khan” should be charged with treason.

This has come a day after the Bollywood superstar joined the debate on “rising intolerance” in the country and said during an awards ceremony for journalists that he was alarmed at the situation in the country and that his wife Kiran Rao had even discussed moving out of India fearing for the safety of their son.

“He should go to Pakistan for the benefit of India,” the Hindu Mahasabha’s national secretary Munna Kumar Sharma said. “A case of treason should be filed against Khan and other traitors like Shah Rukh Khan, who has also made such statements before.”

Hindu Mahasabha leaders in Meerut, who gathered at their party office in the morning “to discuss Aamir’s statement”, also suggested the actor should go in for ‘ghar wapasi’ (conversion), especially in light of the fact that both his present wife and former one (Reena Dutta) have been Hindus.

“If not move to Pakistan, he should indulge in ‘ghar wapsi’ to free himself from the crimes of ‘love jihad’ that he has committed,” said Sharma.

Pandit Ashok Sharma, national vice-president, Hindu Mahasabha, added, “If Aamir Khan’s wife doesn’t like India because it is intolerant, then the Khan family should go and settle in Syria. Only then will they understand how tolerant India is. It is the same country which allowed the actor to marry Hindu women, not once but twice.”

In Aligarh, meanwhile, Hindu Mahasabha members hit the streets burning posters and effigies of the actor. Pooja Shakun Pandey, one of the leaders there, said, “We request the Central government to take necessary action against such traitors. Do not harm the dignity of the country by making statements that reek of publicity stunt. The country gave you name and fame and this is how you malign it.”
