Ghaziabad: An Uttar Pradesh BJP MLA has sought a ban on reality TV show 'Bigg Boss 13' for allegedly promoting obscenity and demanded its host and actor Salman Khan be booked under the stringent National Security Act (NSA).

BJP lawmaker Nand Kishore Gurjar has sent a letter to Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javdekar claiming that the reality show, currently being aired on Colors channel, has "shattered social harmony" and promotes "obscenity and vulgarity".

The Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad, an apex body of ascetics, also opposed the show and said it should be pulled off air immediately as it is "against Indian culture".

Gurjar said the channel is broadcasting the show at prime time when usually families sit together to watch television.

On the 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, he said.

"It has become difficult to watch TV with the family. No such TV serial should be permitted which is destroying our culture. It must be banned immediately," Gurjar said, adding that NSA should also be invoked against the owner of Colors channel and the show's editor.

However, the seers' body indicated it is not against Khan. "We vehemently oppose the show. We respect Salman Khan and appeal to him to immediately pull it off air," Akhara Parishad president Mahant Narendra Giri said.

On Monday and Wednesday, some Hindu outfits had burnt Khan's effigies in Loni area of Ghaziabad 1o protest against the show.
