SOCIAL ACTIVIST APPROACHES IBF, URGES BAN ON JODHA AKBAR

Inside India

Social Activist Devika Mittal has recently approached the Indian Broadcasting Federation against the TV serial “Jodha Akbar” being broadcasted on Zee TV and urged the federation to stop its airing as it has communal and provocative contents. The serial is about the love story of Badshah Akbar and Rajputana Jodha Bai. According to it, Akbar was an extremist religious and cruel king and was brought to “sanity” by the Rajput princess Jodha Bai. After protests by Rajput community and historians on the historical inauthenticity, the serial runs on a disclaimer that it has no historical backings. Mittal, in her appeal, questioned the logic of running a “historical” show that recognises itself to be historically inauthentic. “India is threatened with the forces of Hindutva which claims the country to be the ancestral and “rightful” property of only Hindus, negating the claims of all other religious groups. It also demonises Muslims and have misinterpreted history to serve their purpose,” she remarked.
