The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has sent a letter to the Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar demanding a ban on the 13th season of the reality TV show Bigg Boss. The demand has been made on grounds of vulgarity. The letter states that the show displays “high level of vulgarity” which it makes it difficult to watch it in “a homely atmosphere”. In 2017, the Tamil Nadu-based Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK) party demanded a ban on ‘Bigg Boss’ Tamil for tarnishing Tamil culture."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 statement reads.The statement further condemns the tag ‘Bed Friend Forever’ and asks the makers to be more careful as Bigg Boss is a primt time show and is watched by people of all ages on television."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.”IANS reached out to CAIT Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal who said, “Each episode should be duly scrutinised by the Censor Board. What is happening in the show is absolutely wrong. It becomes difficult to sit and watch the show with the family. We will push our demands to Mr. Javadekar."This is not the first time that Bigg Boss has found itself amidst controversy. In 2017, the Tamil Nadu-based Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK) party demanded a ban on Bigg Boss Tamil for tarnishing Tamil culture.(With inputs from IANS)‘Bigg Boss’ Day 8: Nomination Process Puts Girls in a Tight Spot We'll get through this!
