Aamir won't apologize, ready for legal action
Aamir Khan's television show 'Satyamev Jayate' talks about the various issues in our society. The fact that the show deals with sensitive issues, automatically makes it controversial.
In an episode aired on May 27, Aamir highlighted the malpractices in the medical profession, after which the actor was accused of defaming the medical profession and was asked for an immediate apology.
"Aamir Khan should apologize for having defamed and given one side of the story on medical profession. If he does not we are contemplating to take legal action against him for defaming and demoralizing the medical profession in his TV show," IMA secretary general Dr D R Rai had said.
However, Aamir clearly refused any apology from his end - "I am very comfortable if they (IMA) plan to take legal action if they feel that I have done something wrong. Of course, the courts are available for them. My answer is no, I will not be apologizing," he told to a news channel.
The actor denied IMA's charge of defaming and insulting the medical profession. "I deny that I have done that. I have the highest respect and regard for the medical profession," he said.
Aamir, who has been focusing on social evils through the show, said his show is not against doctors or the medical profession. "If the medical profession has been insulted and defamed by anybody, it is probably by those who are indulging in unethical practices."
As of now, no legal action has been taken, but if Aamir fails to apologize, IMA may take this matter to the court. We will only have to wait and watch!
