KBC is the most loved reality show in India. People from all over the country watch this show together with their family, and it’s not wrong if we say that our day is sort of incomplete if we don’t watch Amitabh Bachchan’s lovely show.
KBC began its news season on 29th September, and since then, it has been getting a crazy response from the audience. The weekend shows of KBC are double on entertainment as popular faces and activists come on the show to inform the general public about so many important issues of our country. However, this weekend the show got itself into a controversy over a question.
The question was for RS. 6,40,000. The question that was asked was: On 25 December 1927, Dr. BR Ambedkar and his followers burned copies of which scripture? The options given were, a) Vishnu Purana, b) Bhagavad Gita, c) Rigdev, and d) Manusmriti. After answering the question, Amit Ji also gave further information, “In 1927, Dr. BR Ambedkar condemned the ancient Hindu text Manusmriti to ideologically justify caste discrimination and untouchability and he also burned copies of it.” The controversy started when KBC host Amitabh Bachchan asked a question related to Manusmirti in the Karamveer episode. This question was asked to social activist Bezwada Wilson and actor Anoop Soni.
Bhartiya Janta Party MLA on Tuesday filed a complaint against Amitabh Bachchan and the makers of the show saying that their question hurt Hindu sentiments. In the complaint, the MLA said that proper action should be taken against the actor and SONY Television.
Abhimanyu Pawar said, “There was an attempt to insult Hindus and create discord between Hindus and Buddhists who have been living in harmony. It is clear that the motive behind this question was to hurt the sentiments of Hindus,” He further added, “This question spreads the message that Hindu religious scriptures are meant for burning and triggers enmity between Hindus and followers of Buddhism,”
कौन बनेगा करोडपती या कार्यक्रमाद्वारे हिंदू धर्मीयांची भावना दुखावल्याबद्दल तसेच अत्यंत सलोख्याने राहणार्या हिंदू व बौद्ध धर्मीयांमध्ये जाणीवपूर्वक तेढ निर्माण करण्याचा प्रयत्न केल्याबद्दल महानायक श्री अमिताभ बच्चन व सोनी टेलिव्हिजन नेटवर्क विरोधात तक्रार नोंदवली.
