India has always had religious riots and untouchability since a long time. Gujarat has had religious riots since 1947, almost all including Godhra started by Muslims. Since Godhra and Modi, riots have ceased. Call it intolerance but this is a good thing. Actually intolerance is not new but intolerance is receiving more press and therefore it is good thing.
As for idiots returning awards, that is political. Maybe SRK should visit the victims of all Hindu victims of Mumbai bombings and attacks by terrorists and Godhra victims from Hindu and Muslim communities rather than speaking to the media. While at it, SRK should also visit the families of soldiers whose heads were chopped off by the Pakistani soldiers.
