Fact Check: Did Aamir Khan Say That His Kids Are Only Muslims?

Spread the love

Aamir Khan was trolled for his meeting with Turkey’s first lady. Some articles quoted him saying that while his wives are hindus, his kids will be Muslims. But did he actually say that?

We recently wrote an article about Aamir Khan’s meeting with the first lady of Turkey & how he was trolled on social media for this decision. Most of the people we spoke to agreed that the trolling was justified. 36% said the trolling was not justified.

While everyone is entitled to their opinion, we were intrigued by some articles quoting Aamir Khan as saying that while he is a Muslim & his wives are Hindus, his kids will be brought up as Muslims. This is totally opposite of what he had said on Aap Ki Adaalat where he mentioned that his kids are both Hindu & Muslim.

Kangana Ranaut too joined the bandwagon. She quoted an interview that appeared on a website(which we don’t want to name) in which Aamir Khan is alleged to have said that he had made it clear that his kids would be brought up as Muslims. Miss Ranaut did not bother to verify whether Aamir Khan actually said those words & attacked him publicly for her personal gains.

People who have seen Junaid & Ira’s(Aamir’s kids from his first marriage) pics will not see a hint of any religion in them. They both come across as regular Indians.

In today’s world where every website, social media handle is hungry for likes, follows, retweets, engagements, etc it has become very common for them to post click-bait headlines with sensational content just for the sake of ad revenues. No impetus is given to check the veracity of the content. No research goes into writing these articles. Sadly, there are little or no consequences for such people. In fact, such social media handles & or website gain a huge number of followers in a short period of time.

In a post SSR world, it is important that we verify these articles ourselves before we comment or share, where a celeb’s image can get maligned for their actions or quote they never did or gave.

OI too posts blind items only after getting it verified by industry sources.

My Opinion: Aamir Khan has time & again proven that he is unlike the rest of Bollywood celebs. He never dances at weddings for a fee, nor has he been seen in the company of underworld elements. He boycotts all award shows. His acting talent is undeniable. He is easily the best actor of his generation. He has time & again spoken about his love for the country. While I did not like him meeting the first lady of Turkey – owing to that country’s clear anti-India stance, I believe we should wait for Aamir to give his POV before outraging any further.

    He doesnot dance at any wedding… ch%^iye, remember Aaamir serving food at Ambani’s wedding? what was that?
    Aamir Khan is one of the shrewdest person in bollywood. Crying at drop of a hat in satyamev jayate, naming his dog Shahrukh, affaifr with Fatima Sana Seikh etc . Your previous blind item too has many article about him.

      Please don’t take out your personal frustration on me by being abusive. just because he served food at ambani’s wedding doesn’t necessarily mean he was paid for it. As far as I know aamir never attends weddings or award shows for money. Aamir, Ajay Devgn & john abraham are unlike other Bollywood celebs. None of them are saints & I never said that they are. their affairs are their personal choice, unless they are accused of rape/sexual assault. You being an akshay kumar fan are pointing fingers at other celebs who have extra marital affairs. That rich!

    See ,not dancing at weddings (which is not illegal or bad) and doing good movies have nothing to do with whether Aamir is patriotic or a good human being. As someone who lives abroad , I come across people from Asia & Africa (who are not Indian ) but admire the Khans & their work .They look up to them , paying careful attention to their words and actions. A lot of the Islamic world hates and despises India & Indians for various reasons , they send money home in support of questionable activities which are undoubtedly against India. As a celebrity who has made his fame and fortune due to India ,Aamir should be more responsible for his action. Why isn’t he speaking up to clarify his stance ? As for Kangana , Aamir should sue her (about the kids’ religion) as that’s where most of us got the info from.

      Turkey has its stance, like India has its own agenda and policies for example not giving citizenship to muslims. Aamir is fair and can see what India does is not. Indians are inherently racist.

        India didnt denies citizenship to muslims. It just for illegals migrant bangladeshi & rohinga muslims who are coming in large numbers and disturbing the india through various reasons.
        Those who have simple papers like adhar and indian citizinship papers they wont be disturb.
        You are racists who think of india like this.
        Who the hell are you ??
        Amir is traitor he get support and love from india. Most of his fans are hindus.
        He make movies by movking hindus like pk.
        But hindus didnt said anything to him nor protested.
        Shame on you !

        everybody in this world is racist. just that some are open about it, admit to it & others are in denial. the issue here is Aamir’s hypocrisy of not meeting Israel’s PM despite Israel never hurting India & him having no issues whatsoever in meeting the first family of Turkey – which openly made anti-India statements, sided with its enemy – Pakistan.

        India is far from perfect and we have much to do ,but we are certainly not as bad as u make it out to be . If India were racist , Aamir’d never be a super duper star in a majority Hindu country which admires and respects him . Ever seen our good old neighbor , Pakistan , have a Hindu /Christian /Sikh superstar ? Or the Middle East ?
