Mumbai: Hindu Sena activists on Tuesday protested outside Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan's residence in suburban Bandra against his remarks on intolerance even as security for the actor was beefed up.

At least seven activists of the Hindu Sena gathered outside the residence of Aamir at Pali Hill around 4 PM and tried to stage a protest, DCP (Detection) Dhananjay Kulkarni said. One of them was heard saying Aamir should take back his statements and apologise as India is a tolerant country.

Five activists were detained by Khar police, Kulkarni said, adding a probe is on against those detained and appropriate action would be taken. "We have provided adequate police security to the actor," the DCP said.

Khan had on Monday said he was "alarmed" by a number of incidents and his wife Kiran Rao even suggested that they should leave the country considering growing intolerance. Also, the 50-year-old actor supported those returning their awards, saying one of the ways for creative people to express their dissatisfaction or disappointment is to return their awards.

Khan said he also felt that the sense of insecurity and fear has been growing in the past six or eight months. He was speaking at the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards ceremony in Delhi.

Earlier, hitting out at Aamir, BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said there was a "deep political conspiracy" by the Congress to defame the country by harping on an atmosphere of intolerance, after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi backed the actor's comments.

"There is no other better country like India and no better neighbour than a Hindu for an Indian Muslim. What is the situation in Muslim countries and Europe? There is intolerance everywhere," the BJP national spokesperson told a press meet.
