BHOPAL: Kissing scenes in an internet collection impressed by Vikram Seth’s novel ‘A Appropriate Boy’, which have been filmed at a well-known temple, have triggered controversy within the BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh.
Following a memorandum-cum-complaint into the matter by Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha chief Gaurav Tiwari in Rewa district, Dwelling Minister Narottam Mishra directed the police on Sunday to probe the matter.
“Officers have additionally been requested to learn how motion may be initiated in opposition to the officers of the OTT platform, which has telecast the collection which reveals a Muslim man indulging in obscene acts amid chants of bhajans in temple premises. Such scenes are certain to harm non secular sentiments,” he mentioned.
Earlier, on Saturday, Tiwari had submitted his memorandum-cum-complaint to the Rewa SP. Within the memorandum-cum-complaint, he alleged that the online collection confirmed a Hindu woman in love with a Muslim man. “Within the second episode, in not less than three scenes, the 2 actors are seen enacting kissing scenes, that are filmed inside the premises of the well-known Shiva temple, constructed by queen Devi Ahilayabai Holkar at Maheshwar space in Khargone district.
Such scenes are filmed intentionally. Such scenes are certain to encourage ‘love jihad’,” Tiwari informed this newspaper. “I’ve demanded that the scenes be eliminated and two NETFLIX officers be booked by the police.” It’s not the primary time that an internet collection has landed in hassle within the BJP-ruled state. In June, filmmaker Ekta Kapoor was booked over a criticism in opposition to alleged obscene content material in her net collection.
