The MPs said that the questions asked on the show were outrageous. The SP"s Kamal Akhtar raised the issue in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday. He said that the contestants are being asked 'obscene questions' about their personal lives in front of their family members. Citing an instance, he claimed that the show was against “Indian culture".
Kamal Akhtar further blamed another TV serials 'Balika Vadhu' on Colors that it is allegedly showing the advantages of child marriage. He demanded the government that 'Balika Vadhu' should be taken off air. The BJP MPs SS Ahluwalia, Najma Heptullah, Prakash Javadekar and Shiv Sena"s Sanjay Raut supported Kamal Akhtar.
They urged the govt to ban the show in order to stop the blatant abuse of Indian cultural ethos. Finally, Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman K Rahman Khan agreed with the MPs. He said that the government should take note of this 'serious' issue.
The legal experts claim that the government can not ban any TV show. It can only issue notice to the TV channel to stop broadcasting the show. So the experts say that Such Ka Saamna can not be banned by government.
However, the reality TV show 'Sach Ka Saamna" is all about unearthing hidden truths of people in full public view. The show has been inspired by its foreign counterpart 'The Moment of Truth'. The participants of 'Sach Ka Saamna" should be ready to disclose their private moments on the live show.
