Tibetans ask Aamir to skip Olympic torch relay

That Aamir getting (read 'championing') social causes and eventually getting embroiled into controversies is nothing new. However, this time, it has stretched a bit too far. It was just recently, that it was announced that Aamir 'The Perfectionist' Khan would be one of the Olympic torchbearers, something that the Tibetan community in India has raised objection to.

They have told Aamir to simply distance himself from the Olympic torch relay that is to be held in China in 2008, so much so that a young protestor went to the extent of threatening self-immolation, if Aamir did not yield to the protests.

The reason cited for this protest is to express solidarity with the Tibetan struggle for freedom from China. Wonder what Aamir will have to say about it!
