An Uttar Pradesh BJP MLA has sought a ban on reality TV show Bigg Boss 13 for allegedly promoting obscenity, and demanded that its host, actor Salman Khan be booked under the stringent National Security Act. Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmaker Nand Kishore Gurjar has sent a letter to the union minister of Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javdekar claiming that the reality show has "shattered social harmony" and promotes "obscenity and vulgarity".

The MLA said that the channel is broadcasting the show at prime time, when families usually sit together to watch television. "On one hand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is portraying and promoting our ancient culture on the international stage and on the other, we have this obnoxious show," the MLA said.

This follows events from Monday and Wednesday when Hindu outfits burnt the effigies of Khan in Loni to protest against the reality show. Yesterday, an agency website took to social media to share that as per sources, the I&B Ministry had decided to "look into the complaint against" the show.
