‘Talk To A Muslim’ is a trending campaign on twitter and many have joined hands to show their support but Anupam Kher with a different opinoin said, “I come from a family that never not told me there are other religions. We have respected all religions. I think it is a ridiculous campaign. To point it out like that, is to make them feel inferior and to me it is a very shameful campaign.But now it is very easy to make any campaign on social media. Every other say something is trending on social media.”
“We are living in a world of social media anything could turn important, ‘I am an India ‘ should always trend all the time in your life and everyone’s blood.” he added.
While praising and appreciating CISF’s contribution to the city’s safety he said, “When they approached me a month ago to attend this event I immediately said yes I wanted to interact with these soldiers. They have been working towards our safety for past 50 years. I have seen them interacted with them on airports and I am thankful for their efficiency, politeness, and alertness. We need these kind of security services and it felt great talking to them here.”
