The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday refused to stay a ban on airing of television series “Ram Siya ke Luv Kush” in Punjab.
The ban on the telecast of the controversial series “Ram Siya ke Luv Kush” stays for the time being, with the court adjourning the matter to September 12.
During a special hearing on a petition filed by Colors TV, Justice T.S. Dhindsa declined to grant stay on the order passed by various District Commissioners in their capacity as District Magistrates.
The decision to ban the telecast of the serial had been taken on the ground that Bhagwan Valmiki had been portrayed in a negative light, hurting the religious and other sentiments of the Valmiki community in the state.
