We have seen numerous riots but still we continue to live here as its our country.” “We will not succumb to nonsense talks. We will do disservice to those who fought for us. We will struggle and strive to live here to improve the country,” Owaisi said.

However, music composer Vishal Dadlani of the Vishal-Shekhar duo, and filmmaker Sanjay Gupta, came in support of Aamir.

At the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards on Monday, Aamir has said, “As an individual, as part of this country as a citizen, we read in the papers what is happening, we see it on the news and certainly, I have been alarmed. I can’t deny. I have been alarmed by a number of incidents.”
