While actor Aamir Khan is back on the small screen with his famed TV series Satyamev Jayate Season 2, the actor recently lodged a complaint with Mumbai Police on the grounds of defamatory remarks on a social networking site against him.
The actor, who highlights social evils and issues of the society through his show, has in the past discussed on issues of dowry, rape and crimes against women etc. The show which accepts donations, to get rid of these problems is associated to the Humanity Trust from Hanspukur, West Bengal.
A social networking site page, questioned the authenticity of this organization and claimed that the proceeds of the show were going for welfare of Muslim boys and Masjid construction assistance.
Aamir took to his Facebook page and clarified the matter saying:
False and malicious messages are circulating through various electronic media including Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter and other social media networks alleging that donations are being sought in my television program Satyamev Jayate Season 2, in relation to an entity by the name of Humanity Trust which is claimed to be working in the field of Masjid Construction Assistance and placement assistance for Islamic youngsters. This is entirely false. I would like to clarify that Satyamev Jayate, in Season 1 was associated with Humanity Trust, Hanspukur, West Bengal which is a charitable hospital run by Dr. Ajoy Mistry and his mother Subhashini Mistry. Humanity Trust, Hanspukur, West Bengal is doing excellent work in the field of health care and provides free medical facilities to the poor.
Please note that Humanity Trust, Hanspukur has nothing to do with Humanity Trust referred to in the malicious messages. I would like to clarify that all donations sought in SMJ are used and channelized for entirely deserving and secular causes, contrary to the content of the highly mischievous/malicious insinuations in the messages, being circulated by vested and unscrupulous interest.
These malicious messages are entirely false, wrong and baseless. I categorically deny that SMJ has anything to do with Humanity Trust as stated in the malicious messages or that we have called for donations in the name of the said entity. I urge the members of the public to disregard the said malicious message.
