Jodha Akbar show In Trouble
The popular daily serial Jodha Akbar being telecast on Zee TV ran into controversy during the recent proceedings at Rajya Sabha
BJP MP Nazma Heptullah demanded in Rajyasabha that the serial be banned for depicting Akbar as tyrant who forcibly married and kept Jodha. Nazma said that the serial was tampering history and children are being shown history differently than what they studied in books. Nazma was supported by some of her fellow MPs. Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajeev Shukla responded that he would convey the sentiments of MPs to Information and Broadcasting Minister and request him to take necessary steps on the issue.
