‘Kun Bane Gakroor Patti
While Wilson and actor Anoop Soni participated in Amitabh Bachchan’s most popular game show ‘Kun Bane Gakroor Patti.’ Big B asked many questions during the show. However, a question posed by Big B caused an uproar.
Amitabh Bachchan asked them both which religious book was burnt by Dr BR Ambedkar and his followers on December 25, 1927. In the option of this question, he named four books on Hinduism, which were as follows. Vishnu Purana, Bhagwat Gita, Rig Veda or Manusmrti.
Guests’ question, Big B explained the question. He said that the 1927 embedding of the ancient book “Manusmriti” condemned the book for theoretical justification of caste discrimination and untouchability. Copies of this book were burnt.
Besides, the complaint filed by the BJP leader said that the four books named in the option belonged to the Hindu religion. Which it is clear that the purpose of this question was to hurt the feelings of Hindus.
This question sends the message that Hindu religious scriptures are for burning and that these scriptures spread enmity between Hindus and Buddhists.
