Ever since Bigg Boss 13 was launched on September 29, it has been facing wrath of the audience because all the girls have to share their beds with men they don't know. Even the tasks being given on the show are not going down well with them and people on social media are questioning if this is an attack on the Hindu culture.
Now Karni Sena has sought a ban on the show calling it vulgar. In a letter addressed to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Minister of Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar, the Rajasthan-based organisation stated that Bigg Boss 13 has been insulting the Hindu traditions on national television.
The Karni Sena also alleged that the renowned reality show has been promoting the idea of ‘love jihad’ and is misleading the millennials. Furthermore, it also stated that BB13 has a high level of vulgarity and cannot be seen with the family. In their letter, The Karni Sena has demanded strict action against makers of the reality show.
Earlier, the Confederation of All India Traders also demanded a ban on the show for its high level of vulgarity. The trade body also wrote a letter to Javadekar saying, ''It is an open fact that the show Bigg Boss has always remain in controversy and is habitual of offending values of our great nation. The content of the show are always highly objectionable and incite the people. In the current show the concept of ‘Bed Friends Forever’ is highly deplorable against all moral ethics of television world. The makers of the show have forgotten that it is the prime time slot on TV when this show is telecasted and people of all age watch the show. The current show has crossed all limits of ethics and values. Not only the show but even the various tasks given to contestants have also crossed human and cultural values. The contents of the show are highly cheap in nature and ought not to be telecasted on the National TV channel which is watched in household.''
''We strongly urge you to take immediate steps to impose ban on Bigg Boss 13 as an interim measure and it should be allowed to continue the show only when each episode is duly certified by the Censor Board, eliminating the element of vulgarity to the extent that it can be watched in a homely atmosphere having viewers of all age groups,'' the letter further stated.
