Boycott call

Giving a boycott call, a user wrote, “Boycott products ad by religious fanatic actors, who only provide unsolicited advice to Hindus but never utter a word about d bigotry of their religion. What right the Aamir Khan has to talk abt Hindu traditions who says “Feeling unsafe in India?”
