I will not apologise to the doctors, says Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan.

Actor Aamir Khan has finally spoken his mind and refused to apologise to the Indian medical fraternity.

The doctors had demanded an apology from the actor for allegedly defaming them and their profession.

While talking to a popular news channel, Aamir said, “I will not apologise to the doctors, I have not insulted the medical profession. Those doctors who indulge in unethical practices have defamed the profession, not me.”

The actor had spoken about the malpractices in the medical community in the country in the recent episode of Satyamev Jayate.

An umbrella body of 21 medical institutions had asked Bollywood star Aamir Khan to apologise for accusing doctors of malpractices in his TV talk show Satyamev Jayate.

After highlighting social issues affecting Indian society, Aamir Khan, in the fourth episode of his show, turned the spotlight on healthcare and malpractices in the medical profession.

He highlighted unethical practices, corruption and scandalous revelations in medical treatment.

“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 pointed out that doctors were subjected to assault without any fault and many people didn’t understand the pressures of the 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.
