The Central Government has permitted Sudarshan TV to telecast its controversial programme titled “Bindass Bol”.
The show was earlier stayed by the Delhi High Court on a prima facie finding under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995. As the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting gave a green signal to the show which was allegedly based on ‘Muslim infiltration’ in civil services.
The Ministry took note of the channel’s submission that the show does not violate any law and that if at all any of its content is found to be violative, action as per law may be taken. It thus granted permission with a caution as under:
“Having regard to the aforementioned facts and circumstances of the case, Sudarshan TV channel is hereby directed to ensure that the programme proposed to be telecast does not violate any of the programme codes. If any violation of the programme code is found, action as per law will be taken.“
