Colors’ ‘Na Aana Iss Des Laado’ draws MIB’s ire

Colors is under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting’s (MIB) scanner yet again, this time for its daily soap ‘Na Aana Iss Des Laado’. MIB has issued a showcause notice to Colors for showing a government official (a District Magistrate in this case) in a bad light in ‘Laado’. This notice comes barely four days after an MIB showcause notice to another show on Colors, ‘Bigg Boss – 3’.

MIB has given Colors 15 days’ time to submit its reply. The notice has been sent under Section 5 of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act 1995, read with Rule 6 (1) (a), (d), (i) and (k) of the Cable Television Networks Rules, 1994 and in violation of the Programme Code.

Though government officials have been shown in a negative light in films, television and other creative medium, what the MIB has taken exception to is that “a District Magistrate is the chief representative of the Government at the district level. Thus, deliberately portraying the character of the District Magistrate in a derogatory way appears to demean the public institution and bring it to disrepute unnecessarily”.

‘Na Aana Iss Des Laado’ is based on a Haryana village and highlights the plight of women in rural areas, with special focus on female foeticide.
