Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is not at all surprised by ridiculous attitude of the politicians. He came down heavily on the politicians for trying to earn political mileage through the terror attacks that rocked Mumbai. He criticizes the Congress party for failing to tackle terrorism and the BJP for mishandling the hijacked Indian Airlines flight 814 a few years ago. He wants no negotiation with the terrorists. This is what he wrote in his blog aamirkhan.com:
"I think the first lesson to learn from this is that we MUST NOT NEGOTIATE. No matter what, the next time round around, and lets not fool ourselves we must be alert and prepared for more attacks, we MUST NOT NEGOTIATE. All potential terrorists must get a very clear message that INDIA DOES NOT NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS. What that means is, that in the future if there is a situation where me or my kids are held hostage by a bunch of terrorists then I must be prepared to tell our government - to hell with me and my children just go in there and kill the terrorists. I am prepared to sacrifice myself and my loved ones for the larger safety and security of the country but DO NOT LISTEN TO AND NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS."
While holding the politicians responsibility for the spread of terrorism, he requested the people to remain calm and act sensibly. "The other important thing we need to remind ourselves in this time of anger and hurt is to stay calm and take sensible steps, and not give in to thoughtless knee jerk reactions. I heard someone say on television that we should all stop paying our taxes as a show of protest. Haven't heard of a more silly idea than that. If we stop paying our taxes then we won't have an army and NSG to save us next time around!!! Instead we should all START PAYING OUR TAXES. We demand so much of our leaders but are we fulfilling our basic responsibility? Can we say with honesty that as citizens of our country we are all honestly paying our taxes? If we are not paying our taxes can we blame the government for being inefficient? If we are corrupt then how can we expect our politicians to be honest?" he asked.
Aamir also blames the public for letting bad people to lead the country by not voting. He wants the youth of this country to start a political party that everybody could look up to. He also urges the masses to defeat terrorism with love.
