It has been more than a week since Bigg Boss 13 started. Although Bigg Boss 13 has not lived up to the hype created by the makers, it has grabbed headlines for the wrong reasons! Yes, the concept of 'Bed Friend Forever' and a few tasks haven't gone well with a section of the viewers. Also, the 'kiss' topic that host Salman Khan took up during the 'Weekend Ka Vaar' episode, has disappointed many, so much that they took to social media to trend hashtags like 'BoycottBiggBoss13', 'JehadFelataBiggBoss' and 'UnsubscribeColorsTV'. Also, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has sent a letter to the Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar, urging him to impose a ban on Bigg Boss 13, on grounds of vulgarity.
Read on to know what the traders' body has to say about the show and also check out a few tweets!
Colors TV Slammed For Showing 'High Level Of Vulgarity'
As per an NDTV report, the letter read, "We invoke your kind and urgent attention towards telecasting of TV show Bigg Boss on Colors TV channel which is showing high level of vulgarity to the extent that is difficult to watch the channel in a homely atmosphere and our country's old traditional and cultural values are being tarnished in the lust of TRP and profits which cannot be allowed in a diversity nature of country like India."
‘The Concept Of ‘Bed Friend Forever’ Is Highly Deplorable’
It further said, "The concept of 'Bed Friend Forever' is highly deplorable and is against all moral ethics of the television world. The makers of the show have forgotten that it is the prime time slot on TV when this show is telecast and people of all age groups watch the show. The current show has crossed all limits of ethics."
‘What Is Happening In The Show Is Absolutely Wrong’
CAIT Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal told IANS that each episode should be duly scrutinised by the Censor Board. He added, "What is happening in the show is absolutely wrong. It becomes difficult to sit and watch the show with the family."
