Khap Panchayat wants Aamir's show to go off-air
First the Rajasthan government showed their annoyance then the perfectionist had to face the irk of doctors for showing them in the bad light and now the Khap Panchayat turned against Aamir Khan for twisted representations of their statements. On 3rd June episode of ‘Satyamev Jayate’, Aamir Khan highlighted the bizarre diktats and illogical rules in Haryana.
The fifth episode of the show threw light on honour killing in Haryana. On the very episode, Aamir Khan lodged a barrage of questions at members of a Khap Panchayat. In their defense, the Khap Panchayat said, "We are trying to safeguard social customs and traditions which are the backbone of any society," said Randhir Singh, president of Meham Chaubisi khap panchayat to a leading daily.
"Such marriages are avoided in most societies across the world as their ill effects have been scientifically proven," he added.
The Khap Panchayat is highly angry with Aamir Khan and demanded the show to fo off air but Aamir and his team did not react to the Khaps demand.
Aamir Khan’s show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ highlighted the wrong and the evil practices prevailing in the society. Despite not liking by some section of the society, his show is highly praised and it serves as an eye opener.
Many issue like female feticide, dowry, illegal medical practices, child abuse and many such unethical practices that exist in the society was highlighted on the show.
