Karni Sena sends legal notice to Bigg Boss for promoting ‘Love Jihad’

It took only two months after the 14th season started airing, for Bigg Boss to land in a legal soup

Mumbai: Bigg Boss, apart from its high viewership, is known for its controversies. This time, it took only two months after the 14th season started airing, for the show to land in a legal soup. After Jaan Kumar Sanu’s comments on Marathi language stirred controversy in Shiv Sena circles, Bigg Boss is now being targeted for promoting ‘Love Jihad’ on the national television.

The Shree Rajput Karni Sena has sent a notice to Endemol Shine India, which presents the Colors TV show, for promoting Love Jihad via its promos and videos. They are referring to the recent public display of affection of Eijaz Khan and Pavitra Punia. The promo which was shared by the Bigg Boss makers also went viral. They feel it is vulgar and increases cases of Love Jihad in the nation.

The notice read: “Recently Eijaz Khan was spotted planting a kiss on Pavitra Punia’s cheeks. Kissing promos of the show was trended and promoted by Colors TV. We underline that the show is promoting vulgarity and is hurting the social morality of the country. The show is against the cultural ethos of the country and highly objectionable and intimate scenes are part of it. This reality show is encouraging and promoting love jihad which is highly unacceptable. Hence we strongly demand to ban Colors TV reality show ‘Bigg Boss”.

“If the show is not censored or banned, Shri Rajput Karni Sena will take it to the streets to protest against it,”the notice further stated.


However, there is still no word from the channel or the show’s officials regarding the same.

The love angle of Eijaz Khan and Pavitra Punia pushed by the makers of Bigg Boss  has been one of the flop shows of the seasons.
