AISPLB demanded that “the producers should remove the ‘tazia’ scene from the Netflix show.”

The notice said, “The objection which has been mentioned in the notice is to episode 4 of Season 1. At 43:30 minutes you have desecrated a “Tazia” when you have shown it falling to the ground.

This particular scene has not just hurt the sentiments of lakhs of people (belonging to different religions, faiths, beliefs, and walks of life) who consider a “Tazia” to be the most sacrosanct and keep it at the highest pedestal, but has also invoked religious fervor of sorts amongst them.”

It further read, “It is needless to say that any act of yours which is contrary to what has been instructed above would invite initiation of criminal proceedings against your inter-alia under section 295.

An Indian Penal Code, besides initiating further suitable action against you, at your risks, costs and consequences throughout.”

A few days ago, Om Prakash Jha also faced extremist harassment when Bajrang Dal attacked the set of Ashram 3.

Up till now Mira Nair and Netflix didn’t respond to the notice.
