Instead of correcting themselves they are making false allegations against Aamir. Aamir just presented plain stats and stats dont lie. He also showed people who had had to suffer from the callous approach of the doctors. Other doctors and a pathologist also what the truth and truth is bitter. I saw the programme and in it two doctors, one from Andhra Pradesh who does heart operations by collecting just Rs 10/- per month and another doctor from Rajasthan who has started generic medicines shops where the same medicines are sold at a cheaper rate, were shown in the programme. Aamir himself applauded the doctors who are doing exemplary work for humanity. The IMAs claim that the good in medical profession were not projected enough in the programme is ridiculous and even a lay man like me can say that if they file a defamation case against Aamir in the court of law they will. There is absolutely no need for Aamir to apologize for showing the truth.

The people related with medical profession know the truth, which is not new to them with Aamir Khan's show. On the other hand, Aamir has also shown prgmatic Dr. Gulhati's version as well as great doctors like Dr. Narayan Shetty.

I don't know what kind of an apology they want. It is a fact and something that each one of us unfortunate enough to visit a doctor would vouch for. Even the smallest clinics are charging a minimum 300 Rs. (not to talk about the bigger and more sophisticated hospitals) as Consultation Fee, some of them not even having the validity of that Fee paid for a return visit within one week, which means you end up paying the same amount again on your next visit for the same problem, for the doctor to confirm that you are now OK or cured.

Medical profession is big business and there is very little charity or humaneness involved in it. How can it be, when right from inception in the Medical colleges, it is big money business and all they look forward to on graduation is how quickly they can recover it. Even those, who do their degrees on concessional fees soon forget that and join the crowd. Of course, exceptions are there but they are far too many. The MCI itself is a mess like the Bar Counc ...more

There are different angles from which people look at it. Aamir Khan produced the facts which probably the guilty couldnt take it right., or even possible that it looked like he is conveying a wrong image of the doctors and the profession to the audience or may be even more kind of perceptions there.He need not actually be apologetic as he never defamed any there but only produced the facts which are definitely some eye openers, which may be certain people feared of. Well, its always been a way , one right step towards the 'right' or 'truth' only shows the next step ahead and such speed breakers must be ignored or better taken care of .!

Aamir Khan has done the right thing. We are experiencing daily what was shown in Satyamev Jayte. I am sure large majority of people wull agree with Aamir Khan. Of course, there are good people also in the medical profession, and this has been acknowledged by Aamir himself.
