KBC Hindu Controversy

FIR Filed For KBC And Amitabh Bachchan


Amitabh Bachchan and the makers of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 12’ (‘KBC’) may soon face legal trouble. A political party’s Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) has lodged a First Information Report (FIR) against the show’s host and its makers for allegedly hurting Hindu sentiments. The question was: On 25th December 1927, Dr BR Ambedkar and his followers burned copies of which scripture? And the options were: (A) Vishnu Purana, (B) Bhagavad Gita, (C) Rigved, (D) Manusmriti. Since all the options pertained to the Hindu religion, the motive behind it was to hurt its sentiments, says the FIR. Internet too erupted with fiery comments where some netizens blamed the makers of running the leftists’ propaganda. Director-producer Vivek Agnihotri too took to Twitter to vent his anguish as he said, “‘KBC’ has been hijacked by Commies. Innocent kids, learn this is how cultural wars are won. It’s called coding.”
