An activist has filed a complaint with the magistrate's court against producers of a TV reality show Big Boss-7, anchored by actor Salman Khan, alleging that it hurt religious sentiments.
Suburban Bandra magistrate's court would hear the complaint filed by Hemant Patil on October 29.
Salman Khan and TV channel Colors and producers of the show have been named as respondents in the complaint.
Patil claims that the show divides its participants in two teams: Angels and Devils. The 'Devils' carry tridents, which is in fact the weapon/symbol of Lord Shiva as per the Hindu mythology, so it hurt his sentiments, he claimed. Bones were tied to trident, which too was offensive, the complainant has claimed.
Patil is seeking that police should file and probe a case under section 295 (insulting religion) of the Indian Penal Code.
