Bigg Boss 13 is now under the lens of right-wing organisation Karni Sena. An organization which was earlier behind the vandalism of Padmaavat set.
Karni Sena has demanded a ban on Salman Khan's popular television reality show Bigg Boss 13. Several threats have been given by right-wing activists and the entire incident was trending on Twitter.
Now, Mumbai police have beefed up security near the Bigg Boss set in Goregaon and Salman Khan's residence in Bandra.
The entire controversy started after host Salman Khan introduced the concept of "Bed Friends Forever" which made the female and male contestants sleep on the same bed throughout the game.
Karni Sena objected to the content and called out for a ban on controversial show. BJP MLA Nand Kishore Gujjar had recently written to Information and Broadcasting Ministry to pull the show off air.
Several right-wing activists have now planned to stage a protest against Bigg Boss 13 show.
In a letter written by Gujjar he mentioned that the "show was promoting obscenity and vulgarity and was unfit for family viewing."
It also says, "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. "
Brahmin Mahasabha has also entered into a fray to ban the reality show with immediate effect. Amit Jani, president of the Uttar Pradesh Nav Nirman Sena went to an extent to announce that he would not eat any food grain until Bigg Boss show is stopped.
He said, "I will survive on fruits and vegetable until the government takes steps to ban the show which is promoting vulgarity and misleading the youth. Showing young couples sharing 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."
