Prakash Jha Responds To Karni Sena

The Karni Sena, never known to  shy away from controversies, has now  gotten  into action against Prakash Jha’s series Aashram  on MX Player, featuring  Bobby Deol  as a  fraudulent debauched Godman.

According to the Karni  Sena,the series is  an insult  to the Hindu religion. They have sent a long legal notice to Prakash Jha stating, among other things,  “The said web series have(sic.)  deeply hurt the sentiments of the people at large and it is also going to spread negative goodwill(sic.)  about Hindu religion on(sic.) future generations to come.”

We  are  not very  sure what “negative goodwill” means.But it definitely is something dangerous and sinister.

 When I reached out to Prakash  Jha for a reaction  to  the Karni Sena’s demand for a ban on Season 2 of Aashram, he replied, “Who am I to make a judgment on  their demand? We had 400 million-plus  views  for  the  first season. I think viewers are the  best placed to decide on ‘negative goodwill’. Shall we  leave it to them?”

The  Karni Sena had earlier accused Sanjay  Leela  Bhansali and Deepika Padukone of denigrating the  Hindi religion in Padmaavat  and had even threatened  to cut off her nose. We are waiting to know which part of  Prakash Jha’s anatomy  the Sena would like to  relieve him of.
