Well if you were living under a rock for most recent 48 hours, you may not think about the whole column kicked up by Aamir Khan’s misplaced expression of his personal feelings. Anyway, if you missed the news, read in detail Aamir Khans Joins The Intolerance Debate: Wife Kiran Wants To Flee The Country
He is being chased down and segregated by people who might rather deliberately ignore towards the rising intolerance in the country than address it; regardless of the fact that adequate information backs that implication.
Anyway, no one cares about the rise of communalism and even Aamir’s Bollywood colleagues are contending hard to prove him an anti-nationalist.
In the interim, a few people have chosen that as opposed to attempting to defame Aamir they would attempt and hurt brand Aamir Khan. For this they have followed brands embraced by him.
Point in case being the most prominent one – Snapdeal.
Some truly savvy and tolerant people have begun a campaign called #AppWapsi and have been endorsing removal of the app from the phones of users who do not have the same opinion with Aamir.
People are giving the Snapdeal app a 1-star rating and demanding that Aamir be disassociate as the brand ambassador. Aamir was roped in as the brand ambassador for the online shopping service in March this year.
We are not certain how well the plan will work but anyways we went over some truly entertaining #AapWapsi proclamations on Twitter. Here are some:
We can't match #Antinationals resource by resource. But we can stop using and promoting them.

All things considered, we are certain that #appWapsi may be a noteworthy achievement if they send Flipkart voucher codes to all users. Tragically, Snapdeal’s app has endured a blow because of such reviews:
