The thirteenth season of the Bigg Boss premiered on and the audience has already witnessed a lot of drama and spats.
Now, 10 days after the premiere of the show, the show has landed in a controversy as BJP MLA Nand Kishore Gujjar from Ghaziabad has written a letter to Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javdekar demanding a ban on the show.
In his letter, the BJP legislator has alleged that the “show was promoting obscenity and vulgarity and was unfit for family viewing”.
Bigg Boss 13 BJP MLA demands ban
“The show is against the cultural ethos of the country and highly objectionable intimate scenes were a part of it. Couples of different communities were being made to become bed partners which was unacceptable.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on one hand, is trying to make India regain its lost glory and, on the other, such shows were demeaning the country’s culture,” he wrote.
The BJP lawmaker also demanded a censor mechanism for content being aired on television in order to prevent such incidents in the future.
He said that children and minors are watching television and have fair access to such shows which have adult content. Moreover, the shows are available on the internet too.
The Brahmin Mahasabha has also sought a ban on the reality show with immediate effect. The Mahasabha has submitted a memorandum in this regard to the Ghaziabad district magistrate.
Amit Jani, president of the Uttar Pradesh Nav Nirman Sena, meanwhile, has announced that he would not eat any food grain until the Bigg Boss 13 show was stopped.
“I will survive on fruits and vegetables until the government takes steps to ban the show which is promoting vulgarity and misleading the youth. Showing young couples sharing a bed on national television is not acceptable and I am shocked that the RSS which claims to be our moral police, has not even taken note of this,” he said.
Karni Sena has also demanded a ban on the Bigg Boss show. In a letter, Karni Sena leader Satyanarayan Purohit said: “Kashmiri Muslim Man is made to share a bed with a Hindu girl. The show is promoting that the unmarried girls can have a baby and the Hindu culture is being downgraded. I appeal that this show should be banned under the Hindu Act.”
