Bigg Boss 14 has found itself in hot soup after right-wing political outfit Karni Sena has demanded a ban on Salman Khan's reality show, claiming that it promotes “love jihad”, following a steamy kiss between Eijaz Khan and Pavitra Punia, a Muslim and Hindu contestant. In fact, they've wasted no time in issuing a notice to the makers and channel on which the show airs. “Shri Rajput Karni Sena would like to state that Bigg Boss has had its fair share of controversies. The show is not only vulgar, but also cheap, Bigg Boss is destroying India. Time and again it has been found promoting Love Jihad,” the notice began.
“Recently, Eijaz Khan was spotted planting a kiss on Pavitra Punia's cheeks. Kissing pormos of the show were trended and promoted by Colors TV. They promoted it like anything. We underline that the show is spreading vulgarity and is hurting the social morality of the country. The show is against the cultural ethos of the country and highly objectionable intimate scenes are a part of it. This reality show is promoting and encouraging Love Jihad, which is highly unacceptable. We strongly demand to ban Color TV's reality show, Bigg Boss,” the notice further read.
“It is to be noted that while some have taken to social media to express their anger over the TV show, if the show is not censored or banned, Shri Rajput Karni Sena will take to the streets to protest against it. Such serials which promote love jihad should be banned with immediate effect. The show promotes disharmony and religious conversion and hence, it is warranted to be banned in the national interest,” continued the notice. Check it out below:
