Bigg Boss is known as one of the most controversial reality shows of all time, and rightly so. The Colors’ show selects celebrities, with different traits and locks them up in an house. Thereafter, they all are given various tasks to perform and based on their tasks and entertaining factor, certain inmates are eliminated and one contestant emerges as the winner in the last. Throughout, contestants argue, fight and entertain the audience and sometimes their weird antics stretch too far.
Well, since last few days, #BanBiggBoss has been trending on Twitter. During the launch episode, host Salman Khan introduced a new concept called ‘Bed Friends Forever’, wherein a girl and a boy have to share the bed. Hence, the new format of the show has received backlash from people saying that it is promoting vulgarity.
Now, the latest we hear is that Karni Sena has also demanded a ban on the show calling it vulgar. Before them, a Traders’ Association also sought ban on the show and approached I&B Minister Praksh Jawadekar regarding the issue. Now, Karni Sena has also written a letter to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis requesting a ban on the show.
In the letter addressed to Prakash Javadekar, the Karni Sena makes a reference to a clip from the show where a “Kashmiri Muslim man is made to share a bed with a Hindu girl.” The letter further read that the show promotes that unmarried girls can have a baby and it is totally ruining the Hindu culture. They further appeal that the show should be banned under the Hindu Act. "Under the Hindu act, I request the government to immediately ban the show because it is being telecasted on national TV. Bigg Boss show has totally ruined the Indian culture," the letter states.
According to IANS, the Confederation of All India Traders, had also demanded a ban on Bigg Boss 13 on Tuesday.
Bigg Boss 13 is an all celebrity season and has no commoners as contestants unlike the last two seasons. Some of the popular and known celebrity contestants this year include Sidharth Shukla, Rashami Desai, Dalljiet Kaur and Devoleena Bhattacharjee.
