MTV India office attacked in Mumbai for promo poster

The office of MTV India in Mumbai was attacked on Monday afternoon. According to media reports, it was allegedly attacked by a group of Sikhs to protest a poster of a show called 'On the job', a career-based reality programme on the music channel.

The promo posters of the show and the new career options before youth depict a woman massaging a man, while a Sikh youth looks on.

Though MTV India officials claimed they were not in a position to explain the reason for the attack or the group behind the attack, in an official statement from the channel, Ashish Patil, VP and General Manager, MTV India, said, “A group comprising 80-100 people attacked our office this evening and destroyed our property and hurt some members of our staff. We have no idea about their objective or motive behind this act. We have lodged an official complaint with the relevant law-enforcing authorities and they’re looking into the matter.”
