'Sach Ka Saamna' to have free run as Delhi HC dismisses petitions
Advertisement
#1
Looks like the controversial reality TV show Sach Ka Saamna will have its free run on Star Plus. The Delhi High Court does not want to play the moral policing role. The Court's message: If viewers don't want to watch the show, they can simply switch off their TV.

Dismissing two petitions seeking a stay on Sach Ka Saamna, a division bench headed by Chief Justice A P Shah suggested the petitioners to approach the central government over it.

"It is for the government to decide whether the programme should be banned or not. It is not the function of the Court ... There are far more serious problems in this country which we have to settle," the bench said.

Petitioners Deepak Maini and Prabhat Kumar had said the show - on which contestants are asked personal questions - was "obscene" and went against the values of the Indian society.

Dismissing the separate petitions, the Court said, "Our culture is not so fragile that it would be affected by one TV programme. You are asking us to entertain an area which deals with perceptions and opinions. Further, morality yardsticks are to be decided by the government. We cannot decide the issue."

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry had issued a show-cause notice to Star Plus following a furore in Parliament over Sach Ka Saamna's controversial content.
