Sporting a black blazer, the 48-year-old actor began the episode by recalling the horrific December 16 Delhi gangrape case, which shook the nation

Superstar Aamir Khan today kicked off the second season of his much-talked about show Satyamev Jayate by taking up the grave issue of rapes in India. “When the first season of our show got over, a terrible incident took place, December 16 Delhi gangrape case. The incident shook the nation. It affected people’s thinking, especially youngsters, who thought it was just enough and took part in protests aiming to bring justice to the victim,” Aamir said on the show.

After playing a small clipping of the protest and public outrage that took place following the incident, Aamir went on to discuss the legal, medical and judicial apathy that the rape victims and their families face afterwards.

During the two-hour show, the Dhoom:3 star presented several anecdotes of women belonging to all age group, who were raped in different parts of the nation.

Talking about the insensitivity and irresponsible behaviour of the police, hospitals and the judiciary, many victims shared their plight. The actor urged the nation to support the demand for ‘One Stop Rape Crisis Centre’, which was suggested by Justice Usha Mehra commission’s recommendation for speeding the justice process.

“I also urge my viewers to change their perception towards the rape victims, who are looked down upon in the society,” Aamir said on the show. “Rather than treating the victims that way, you should do so with the accused. It is criminal, who should be boycotted. This way you will help the victim in her fight for justice,” he added.

Some of the victims, who came on the show, shared their horror and long fight for justice. Aamir also talked about the case of two girls from different backgrounds, who were also raped once, but they started their life again with courage and decided not to hide their identity on the show.

    A brilliant start,its the burning issue in India right now & needed to be addressed point blank. I am glad that he kept his emotions in check this time,because it was really hard not to cry. I think the whole rape issue is interconnected with many issues,the rapists,who are their parents?what are they teaching their children?you need to get into the root of it, why is it still a social taboo? why the law inforcements are so reluctant about the rape victims?why even the educated class judge the victims rather than the accused!?! This shows should be distributed free in every nook & corner in India.We salute you Aamir. You have proved again what it means to be a real Mard.Styamev Jayate!

      The subject of rape is a touchy one – even here in the West. This is the official trailer of ‘The Accused’ with Jodie Foster. Is there an Indian director brave enough to tackle the subject – and are there enough brave actors to play the parts?? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDujtATPuBk

    I feel this issue should have been taken in other perspective because now after knowing the facts every women will think not to Report.The whole rape issue is interconnected with many issues,the rapists,who are their parents?what we are teaching Our children?If you need to get into the root of it, make our society gender free/Bodyoriented it should be soul oriented.why is it still a social taboo? why the law reinforcement are so reluctant about the rape victims?why even the educated class judge the victims rather than the accused.

      Who’s going to be the brave Indian director who will bring this touchy subject up in a movie? We did this in the West many years ago with a movie called The Accused with Jodie Foster – see if you can get it.

    Rape ke mudde pe discuss karne ko bahut kuch hai. Par haalat itne zyada kharab ho chuke hain ki ab kuch discuss karne ko bacha nahin. I am a female, a mother, I have a baby girl. I’m staying in New Delhi. Aur meri zindgi ka har pal ek risk hai.Aaj se kuch saal pehle jab main college me thi, to kisi bhi ladke ke zara sa chhedne pe react karti thi. Ab wo bhi nahin kar pati, pata nahin badla lene ke liye ye psychy men kya karein.Logon ko maarne ka bhi ek tarika hota hai, par yeh jaanwar se badtar aadmi zaat pata nahin dusron ki betiyon ko kya samjhte hain. Ab to bahut hi zyada ho chuka hai. Zarurat hai, har maa-baap ko ghar me baith ke apne bete ko apni kasam dila ke samjhane ki ki wo har ladki ki izzat karenge. Kitni strange baat hai na, aaj tak ek bhi aisa case nahin aaya jab kisi maa-baap ne apne rapist bete ko jaan se mara ho……..
