Aamir Khan’s television show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ has managed to move the audience. But the show has come into controversies after airing the fourth episode of the show, in which Aamir Khan brought to light the malpractices practiced in the medical fraternity in the country.

The Indian Medical Council after the show had demanded that the actor apologized to them in public for allegedly defaming them and their profession.

But the actor Aamir Khan refused to apologize and said that he hadn’t done anything wrong.

“I will not apologize to the doctors; I have not insulted the medical profession. Those doctors who indulge in unethical practices have defamed the profession, not me,” he said in an interview.

Aamir Khan’s ‘Satyamev Jayate’ is a social awareness programme and Aamir Khan had previously brought to light issues like female infanticide, dowry and sexual abuse.

But this is the first time that the content of the show has come under some scrutiny. A number of medical institutions have accused Aamir Khan for sensationalizing medical malpractices and have also threatened to boycott the actor’s films if he fails to issue an apology.
