Aamir Khan, the Bollywood actor who has been a great supporter of gender equality recently blamed the people’s patriarchal mindset for the low status of women in today’s society.
Aamir had recently visited a girl’s college in Delhi along with British PM David Cameron. He said that most of the questions he received were to do with the status of women in our society. Also, they asked him how they could make the best use of their education. Aamir said that we were all born into a society which was ripe with patriarchal thinking. The notion that men are greater than women.
He also said that we had to immediately start dealing with the problem. He wanted people to stop killing the girl child and instead treat her with the same love and give her the same opportunity that was given to the male child.
