Delhi court has dismissed a criminal complaint seeking registration of FIR against actors Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan. The complaint was filed for allegedly hurting religious sentiments by entering the sets of a temple wearing shoes while shooting for reality show Bigg Boss 9.
In the ATR, police had earlier said that Shah Rukh and Salman were shooting at a makeshift temple which was part of the sets in a studio for the reality show and had no intention to hurt religious sentiments.
The report was filed by advocate Gaurav Gulati who said, “It is a disrespect to the Hindu religion and its belief as it is strictly prohibited to come in the temple with shoes and also they were showing their back to the idol which is also deemed to be an insult to the Hindu goddess... (sic),” it had alleged and claimed that it seemed to be a “well—planned malicious act to outrage Hindu feelings“.
However, the report forwarded by SHO of Roop Nagar Police Station in February, had said “No cognisable offence is made out. The promo was not shot to disturb the sanctity of a religious place or disturb or hurt the religious sentiments of any individual, group, community or section of the society.”
