Tandav follows BJP leaders’ allegations:

The allegation comes after two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders alleged that the Saif Ali Khan-starrer web series Tandav hurts Hindu religious sentiments.

Ram Kadam, the BJP leader said he has filed a complaint at Mumbai’s Ghatkopar Police Station against Tandav.

He alleged that the series has hurt the sentiments of Hindus and he would not tolerate this. 

Kadam said, “I have decided to write a letter to Union Minister Prakash Javadekar regarding this issue and will also mention that all the over-the-top (OTT) platforms must be brought under censorship.”

When asked in detail about the issues, Kadam said, “One of the actors has used Lord Shiva’s Trishul and Damru in an objectionable manner which has hurt the sentiments of Hindus,” he said.

“Stringent action should be taken against the actor, director, and producer of the web series,” he added.

Expressing similar concerns, Manoj Kotak, a BJP leader has written a letter to Union Minister Prakash Javadekar.

In the letter, Manoj Kotak wrote, “It seems that the makers of Tandav have mocked Hindu gods and disrespected Hindu religious sentiments. I urge the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to ban Tandav in the meantime. “

On January 4, Amazon Prime Video released the trailer of Tandav.
