Mumbai: An FIR has been filed against Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and the makers of the reality show Kaun Banega Crorepati for hurting ‘Hindu sentiments’.
In a recent episode, social activist Bezwada Wilson and actor Anup Soni appeared on the show as guests and the question was Rs 6,40,000.
The question was asked, “On 25 December 1927, Dr BR Ambedkar and his followers burned copies of which scripture?’ The options that were provided were, ‘(A). Vishnu Purana (B). Bhagavad Gita, (C). Rigdev (D). Manusmriti.”
The answer to this question was Manusmriti. After that, Amitabh Bachchan went on to explain how Dr. Ambedkar burnt the copies of Hindu text Manusmriti. He said, “In 1927, Dr. BR Ambedkar condemned the ancient Hindu text Manusmriti to ideologically justify caste discrimination and untouchability and he also burned copies of it,” as quoted by DNA.
