Satyamev Jayate, Aamir Khan’s latest TV show is a super hit and has sort of shaken the nation. The first episode which was telecast last Sunday, has received remarkable reviews.

Taslima Nasreen, a writer from Bangladesh, appreciates the actor for his efforts and salutes Aamir for taking up such an initiative. However, she says that other Bollywood superstars, naming Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan in particular, should take the initiative to talk about rape and sexual abuse of women.

“Dear Salman Khan, please talk about rape, domestic violence and dowry murder on TV tomorrow. Ppl should know about these problems,” Taslima Nasreen posted on her Twitter page.

“Dear Shahrukh Khan, pl talk about sexual abuse & sexual slavery on TV. Ppl shd know about these problems.We talk, but we’re not film stars,” she further added.

Why filmstars in particular?

Well, Taslima Nasreen stressed on the fact that filmstars have the power to grab the attention of such issues.

“From now on film stars should talk about social problems on TV. Everybody will listen to them. Ppl don’t listen to human rights activists. Feminists have been talking about female foeticide and it’s dangerous effects for decades. Ppl have learned about it today from star plus,” she posted and saluted Aamir Khan for creating awareness about female foeticide on the very first episode of Satyamev Jayate”.

“I salute Aamir Khan for being so courageous and for raising people’s consciousness. #gendercide,” Taslima Nasreen posted.
