Aamir Khan‘s TV show Satyamev Jayate seems to have achieved its purpose. It may be recalled that the second episode of the show dealt with the grave issue of child abuse still prevalent in India. Various victims who faced this ghastly abuse boldly came out of the closet on the show and narrated their horror stories that shocked the country.
And now it seems that the effort taken by the show to reach the Government has had some effect. The child protection bill which has been pending for a long time has finally been passed by the Lok Sabha. An excited Aamir tweeted, “Hey guys, great news! The Lok Sabha has passed the Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences Bill today!!! Unbelievable!!! Super News!” He further added, “Hey guys, I want to thank the brave survivors who came on the show today to share their stories. Anamika, Cinderella, Harish, Ganesh, Nazneen and Padma Aunty (Harish’s Mom), y’all have done a great service to all of us.”
Must say Aamir has yet again managed to do the unthinkable. Kudos!
