Jaipur, Nov 26: Hitting back at those raking up the intolerance issue, an RSS functionary on Friday, Nov 27 said "intellectual terrorism" (boddhik aatankwad) is being spread in the country in the name of intolerance as part of a conspiracy.
"People are being instigated for aggressive opposition in the name of intolerance to stall development of the country. It is a conspiracy against the country and it should be stopped," RSS leader J Nand Kumar said.
He branded the protests over "growing intolerance" as "intellectual terrorism". He said that incidents like the Dadri lynching should be stopped but the freedom of expression should not be misused, he said.
On writers returning awards to government, Kumar said this was an "insult of the nation".
When asked about Aamir Khan's comments on intolerance, the RSS leader said when people of the nation tolerated Aamir's movie 'PK' then how can the country be intolerant? He asked whether it is possible for Aamir to make a movie like 'PK' in Pakistan.
