Salman and the Bigg Boss 7 authorities have been accused of hurting the Islamic sentiments by sending the contestants to ‘Jannat and Jahannum’ in Bigg Boss house. Jannat and Jahannum are sacred in Islam and the show was making a mockery of the Islamic beliefs.
High court advocate MA Qavi Abbasi, complainant Mohammad Fasiuddin Ayaan and other Muslim leaders alleged that the religious sentiments of Muslims had been hurt by screening ‘Heaven and Hell’ (Jannat aur Jahnnum) in the popular reality show.
The reality show has been mired in controversy for several weeks. Earlier this week, contestant Armaan Kohli was arrested for allegedly assaulting British singer-actress Sofia Hayat inside the Bigg Boss house. He was allowed to return to the house after completing legal formalities, in a highly-criticized move by the show producers.
The show, hosted by Salman Khan for the past three seasons, throws together celebrities in a secluded house with over 80 well-placed cameras monitoring their every move. Season 7 of the show went on air on Colors on September 15.
