Satyamev Jayate: Sarv Khap Panchayat plans action against Aamir Khan

Satyamev Jayate: Sarv Khap Panchayat is planning to take action against Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan’s show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ has irked certain sections of the Indian society for allegedly maligning their image and defaming them.
Not too long ago, an umbrella of medical institutions sat over a meeting to decide legal action against Aamir for throwing poor light on the alleged malpractices people from their fraternity indulged in. They even sought an apology from the host for defaming them.
And now the Sarv Khap Panchayat communities from Haryana have decided to take action against the Bollywood actor.
Aamir’s show had played host to members of the Khap Panchayat and had confronted them by asking tricky questions about the “tyrant” law formulated by them.
And hence the Khaps want the show’s telecast to be terminated.
Talking to a leading daily, Randhir Singh, Head of Meham Chaubisi Panchayat said, “I got a call from a villager informing me that his three-year-old granddaughter told him that she too would marry by eloping.”
“What kind of changes the film star wants to bring in our society, his act would destroy the entire social structure of out villages that were living in brotherhood for decades,” he added.

Satyamev Jayate fulfills Aamir Khan's dream?

He doesn't want to enter politics and candidly admits he has no solutions to problems. Actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan, revelling in the 'dream reaction' to his TV show Satyamev Jayate, says his purpose is served if his efforts make people introspect.

Each Sunday since May 6 had seen the 47-year-old bring Indian television audiences face-to-face with issues like female foeticide, dowry, child abuse, malpractices in medical profession and honour killing. An entertainer rarely does that, and Aamir is happy in his space.

"I am not interested in politics, so I won't be joining politics. I feel what I am able to do from where I am, from the the stream that I am in, is much more. I can contribute much more (this way). So I am happy doing that," Aamir said.

He admits one TV show and one person's efforts cannot bring about any change, but says "information and knowledge make you act differently". And that, through Satyamev Jayate, is his effort.

Excerpts from the interview:

Q: Your show has received stupendous response from all quarters. Has the audience given it more love than you expected?

This is a very dream reaction that we are getting...right from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, people are watching it in the small towns, villages, big cities... People across all economic groups and across rural and urban areas are watching it. The way people are emotionally connected to it is great. The way it is moving them, touching them, and affecting them is very heartening.

Q: You seem to have donned the role of a social reformer. Post "Satyamev Jayate", do we see you take on a larger role at some point, perhaps join politics?

I am not interested in politics, so I won't be joining politics. I feel what I am able to do from where I am, from the the stream that I am in, is much more. I can contribute much more (this way). So I am happy doing that.

Q: Is there any follow-up mechanism to the social issues that you have been raising on the show?

We believe information and knowledge make you act differently. Giving a broad example, if you look at a film like "Taare Zameen Par"... When the film was released, majority of the country's population had no idea that there was something like dyslexia, a learning disability. Thereafter, it started having an impact that has continued till today. So what we can do with this show is - 13 "Taare Zameen Par".

We are trying to get the viewers to look inwards. We are not expecting you to join an andolan (revolution) on female foeticide, nor are we expecting you to barge in each house of your neighbourhood to check if they are doing it or not... what we are expecting is that you yourself should not do it, and if somebody is thinking of doing it, you should discourage them from doing it.

We are trying to show the way forward. And by that I don't mean that we have a solution. So in answer to what the follow up is to this - I don't know what it is. What we are doing is basic, essential, fundamental and primary. And according to me, the follow-up or rather fallout of this will be very organic in itself.

Q: Several individuals and NGOs work towards society's betterment. But that hasn't helped so far. What do you have to say?

We are not discovering a new issue, we are actually tackling issues that are well known. Our research is based on work done by experts and social activists over the last 20 to 30 years. So their work is remarkable and important. Now what do I bring to the table?

Their work is the foundation of our work, and I am using my goodwill, which I have earned over the last two-and-a-half-decades. I am trying to put it to good use and using television, a fantastically strong medium, to address issues on a mass scale.

Q: You have let go of the aura around a celebrity to come closer to the country's masses and their problems. How gratifying is the experience?

It's been an amazing journey to come in contact with people from different parts of the country and from different cultures. I have had the good fortune of learning so much more about the country. It has got me closer to the people of our country. It is a huge learning experience for me to do this show.

Satyamev Jayate Persons With Disabilities Episode 06

Satyamev Jayate: 

Persons With Disabilities Episode 06: We Can Fly! 


People with disabilities have the same zeal and appreciation for life as the rest of us do. They can, and want to, participate in all aspects of life along with the mainstream. But people with disabilities get shunned, doubted, mocked and insulted. Access to public places and buildings is restricted and often impossible. Doors are closed for schooling and employment. India does not appear to be mature enough and understanding enough to recognise people with disabilities for what they are – people.

Satyamev jayate Episode 05: Is Love A Crime?



The simple act of falling in love opens up a world of emotions and reactions which sometimes culminate in crime – the death of the couple. Even if they escape death, lovers who go against religious and community barriers still have to face harassment and censure from society and, due to this pressure, rejection from their families. But the law is clear, that consenting adults are free to marry. And there is an organization which protects couples, helps them fight harassment and gives them shelter so they can marry freely.
