Anupam Kher's march against 'intolerance'
New Delhi: Veteran actor and BJP supporter Anupam Kher has invited all Indians to march with him to Rashtrapati Bhavan here on Friday to protest the voices being raised over "intolerance" in the country.
"#MarchForIndia will start from India Gate, New Delhi at 10 a.m. on November 7. All INDIANS are invited. Jai Ho. :) #IndiaIsTolerant," Anupam shared on his Twitter page.
The actor will be joined by a string of artistes, writers and painters for the march.
This follows the decision of a host of filmmakers, including the likes of Dibakar Banerjee and Anand Patwardhan, as well as writers and historians to raise voice against the rising intolerance under the BJP-led government, and to return various government awards and honours.
Anupam earlier shared on Twitter: "This #AwardWapsiGang has not insulted the government, but the jury, the chairman of the jury and the audience who watched their films."
