The official statement from Imagine TV stated that, “We have received an advisory from the I&B Ministry that requires us to shift the telecast timing of the program, Rakhi Ka Insaaf. We are complying with the Ministry"s advice on this matter, and changing the telecast time of the program to 11 pm."
On the show Rakhi is playing the role of the judge who is solving the social problems of the commoners. But while judging the people on the show she uses few harsh languages, which sometimes hurts the feeling of the participants. Recently, a young man committed suicide after being verbally abused by her on the national television.
The statement adds that “We have already stopped all day time repeats of the program and have advised all news channels to refrain from carrying excerpts or clips of the show during daytime hours of 5 am to 11 pm, as directed by the Ministry. We would also like to clarify that we have not challenged this Order in any court."
Along with Rakhi Ka Sawant, 'Bigg Boss 4' aired on Colors channel also received notification by the ministry officials for violating the television programming codes. However, unlike Imagine TV, Colors preferred to move the court against the ministry's orders.
Imagine TV on Thursday announced that they are ready to follow the advise of the information and broadcasting ministry by shifting the show 'Rakhi Ka Insaaf'' (hosted by item queen Rakhi Sawant) timings to the 11 pm slot.
