Bollywood's Big-B in trouble, FIR filed against Amitabh Bachchan by a BJP MLA.


A BJP MLA from Maharashtra has reached the police coining an FIR against the legendary Amitabh Bachchan and the makers of the television show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati 12' and alleged that the show has hurt Hindu sentiments deeply. "There was an attempt to insult Hindus and create discord between Hindus and Buddhists who have been living in harmony," Mr. Pawar tweeted, posting a copy of his two-page letter to the police official. Abhimanyu Pawar, BJP legislator from Ausa in Latur district, in a complaint to Latur SP Nikhil Pingle, said action should be taken against Amitabh Bachchan and Sony Entertainment Television over a question asked during Friday's 'Karamveer special' episode. The episode had social activist Bezwada Wilson and actor Anup Soni in the 'hot seat' opposite Amitabh Bachchan, who asked the question worth ₹ 6.40 lakh The question went asking: On 25th December 1927, Dr. BR Ambedkar and his followers burned copies of which scripture? The options were: (A) Vishnu Purana (B) Bhagavad Gita, (C) Rigved, and (D) Manusmriti. Amitabh Bachchan then said, "In 1927, Dr. Ambedkar condemned the ancient Hindu text Manusmriti to ideologically justify caste discrimination and untouchability and burned its copies." "This question spreads the message that Hindu religious scriptures are meant for burning and triggers enmity between Hindus and followers of Buddhism," said Mr. Pawar, who was a close aide of Devendra Fadnavis while he was Maharashtra Chief Minister. Mr. Pawar has accused the makers and the legend to have purposefully painted the question in such a manner as to deeply hurt Hindu sentiments."All four options pertained to the Hindu religion. It is clear that the motive behind this question was to hurt the sentiments of Hindus," Mr. Pawar said in his police complaint. The viewers have also outraged their views online saying that the 'left-leaning' show is running propaganda against believers, certainly hurting Hindu sentiments. Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri shared a clip from the show on micro-blogging site Twitter, claiming KBC was "hijacked by Commies". "Innocent kids, learn this is how culture wars are won. It's called coding," he tweeted.
