Assamese TV display Begum Jaan, which presentations a Hindu girl taking refuge in the house of a Muslim guy, has been banned for two months for allegedly hurting spiritual sentiments. Guwahati Police Commissioner MP Gupta has issued the ban, pronouncing that the display is prone to “incite violence.”
According to a file in NDTV, the display has been accused of marketing ‘love jihaad.’ The ban was once issued after court cases won from Hindu Jagran Manch, in addition to the All Assam Brahmin Youth Council and United Trust of Assam.
However, the regional channed Rengoni, which announces the display, has rejected the ban, pronouncing that there’s not anything derogatory in regards to the display.
Sanjive Narayan, the Chairperson and Managing Director of Rengoni, stated, “It has nothing to do with love jihad. It is about a Hindu girl who falls into trouble in a Muslim locality and saved by a Muslim man. Our legal team is on it. This is the first time here that such an action has been taken. We don’t see anything which is derogatory to any religion in this serial.”
Mrinal Kumar Lashkar, the state leader of Hindu Jagran Manch, informed the e-newsletter, “Begum Jaan does not depict the ethos of Hindu society or the Assamese society in correct sense. It belittles the Brahmins, in the Assamese society already love jihad is there and this serial can trigger it more.”
The display’s protagonist Preety Kongkona, has filed a police grievance after receiving abuse, harrassment and rape threats on the web. She stated that it was once very painful for her and described the revel in as “verbal rape.”
Authorities within the Dispur police station stated that they’re investigating the grievance.
