Why should Aamir apologise, asks Javed Akhtar

Jun 3, 2012 IANS

Mumbai, June 3 (IANS) The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has demanded an apology from actor Aamir Khan for sending a "wrong message" about the medical community in his programme "Satyamev Jayate". But lyricist Javed Akhtar doesn't approve of it and calls it a "sick" decision.

"The Indian Medical association wants Aamir to apologise for exposing corruption in their profession. That is really sick," Akhtar posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

After highlighting social issues like female foeticide and dowry, Aamir, in the fourth episode of his show, put the spotlight on healthcare and malpractices in the medical profession.

Reacting to the episode, an umbrella body of 21 medical institutions Wednesday asked the actor to apologise.

"It is not Aamir Khan but some immoral dishonest greedy and corrupt doctors who are insulting the medical profession and many honest doctors," wrote Akthar.
