'Sach Ka Samna' - 'Moment of Truth'
FIRST - why cant Indian channels get real , why do they always adapt to some program that is already there???
SECOND- once they do it ,there is always a big NOISE made about it in the media, well then stop it at the start , do not give permission to make such programs
THIRD - the ones participating are well aware of what is coming their way , they are never taken by surprise...so why is the government wasting time ??
FOURTH- they can look into issues that are of more importance , and needed , rather than spending a whole day on a daily soap.
TV channel gets notice over 'Sach Ka Samna'
NEW DELHI: Hours after the furore in Rajya Sabha over the reality show 'Sach Ka Samana' broadcast by Star Plus, government on Wednesday issued a
show cause notice to the TV channel.
The Information and Broadcasting Ministry, which issued the notice, has sought a reply from the channel by July 27.
Ministry sources said the notice has been issued as the channel allegedly violated the clause 6 (1) ADIO of the programme code which says it offends the good taste and good decency.
The content of the reality show in question was raised by Kamal Akhtar of Samajwadi Party in the House during the Zero Hour.
He said obscene questions are asked by the anchor of the programme and gave a recent example when a woman was asked in the presence of her husband whether she would have physical contact with another person.
When she said no, the polygraph test said the answer was wrong, Akhtar said asking what impression would be created on the husband.
Meanwhile, I&B Minister Ambika Soni has called a meeting of NBA and IBF to discuss the issue of regulation of content in electronic media post Mumbai terror attacks.
