Doctors ask Amir to apologize

Amir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate, in its fourth episode turned the spotlight on healthcare and malpractices in medicine profession. He displayed the unethical, corrupt and illegal practices relevant to medical treatment.

But a combined body of 21 medical institutions “Medscape” has asked superstar Amir Khan to apologize for accusing doctors of malpractises in his show Satyamev Jayate.

Medscape India said that representation of malpractices practiced by doctors shown was rather sad and Amir should apologize.

“It is rather sad that doctors should be made the object of such shameless, unilateral scrutiny,”

Himanshu Mehta, co-founder and advisor to Medscape India, said.

“Aamir Khan is my favourite actor and he should stick to making films,”

said another doctor, Sunita Dube, president of Medscape.

“Surprisingly, no doctors’ body has spoken against Aamir yet. We need to stand united against such blatant lies. We are going to write a scathing letter demanding an apology from him,”

Dube said.

Medscape says that Amir and people do not understand the pressures of profession

“Where is Aamir Khan when doctors are assaulted? Where is he when we give free treatment to the needy?”

asked Kishore Taori, president of the Maharashtra Medical Council that is associated with Medscape.
