Aamir Khan, Exposing the Jihadis

Aamir Khan, Satyamev Jayate

Aamir Khan has a show on Indian television called Satyamev Jayate. The show’s title translates to Truth Alone Prevails. In it, he tackles many important issues facing India. During one episode, he dealt with the Muslim practice of honor killing:

Five months after a young couple appeared on Aamir Khan’s television show, Satyamev Jayate, and talked about the threat to their lives because they had married without their parents’ consent, the man was shot dead near his village in western Uttar Pradesh on Thursday evening, allegedly by his wife’s brothers.

Abdul Hakim, 28, and his 26-year-old wife Mehwish, both Muslims hailing from families with different social standing, had been living under the protection of an NGO in Delhi since May last year. About 15 days ago, Hakim and his wife, who is nine months pregnant, went to meet his ailing mother near Adoli village in Bulandshahr district. He was shot there, while on his way home from the local police station.

I applaud you, Aamir Khan. Despite what has occurred here, the light of day is still the best disinfectant. According to the above link, you are the third Indian to be featured on the cover of Time after Aishwarya Rai and Parveen Babi. Keep up your mission. . .
