Viral Post against Aamir Khan: Taslima Nasreen clears air, says 'Not my words'
New Delhi, Nov 25: A post has been going viral on social media since Tuesday, Nov 24. The post went viral following Aaamir Khan's controversial statement on increasing intolerance in India.
It was projected that the statement in post was written by noted writer Taslima Nasreen.
The post said, "Taslima Nasreen noted Bangladesh writer commented today- Amir Khan you earned 300 crores by mocking Hindu gods in PK if you would have done this in Pakistan, Bangladesh or on Muslim religion you would have been hanged and still you say India is intolerant."
A photograph of Taslima was also attached along with the viral post.
Though many believed it was Taslima's statement, there was confusion on the authenticity behind the author of the post which was, however, later cleared by the Bangladeshi writer herself.
Tweeting from her personal Twitter handle, Taslima herself confirmed that the text in the post was not drafted by her.
In a series of tweets she corroborated that some has put words in her mouth.
In one tweet she said, "Ridiculous. This is not my statement. Bad people put words in my mouth." In another tweet she said "Not my words."
