Bigg Boss 13: Love Jihad The Picture Going Viral Is Not From This Season

The show known only for its controversies has begun. It has not even been a week that Bigg Boss 13 began and it has already become the eye of the storm. From Koena Mitra talking about her abusive Turkish ex-boyfriend threatening to burn her passport to #BoycottBiggBoss trending for allegedly promoting Love Jihad, the show has irked the audience already.

For the unversed, the makers of Bigg Boss 13 have introduced a new term this time. While earlier, the contestants chose who they will share the bed with on their own, this time they entered the show in couples – as BFFs (Bed Friends Forever).Audiences were apparently miffed that the makers have given all the housemates a partner, also known as BFF (Bed Friends Forever). According to BFF, contestants were given random bed partner. In some cases, boys were paired along with girls. This hasn’t gone down well with many, especially the the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT).

Mahira Sharma, one of the contestants, was paired along with Asim Riaz. This has been given a Hindu-Muslim angle by the fans.

Now, a black and white picture from Bigg Boss showing two contestants, a girl and boy, being a little intimate is doing the rounds. People suspected that it is from Bigg Boss 13, and it shows Kashmiri Muslim man Asim Riaz along with Brahmin woman Mahira Sharma.

After people on social media demanded that this season of the Bigg Boss shall be banned for it promotes ‘Love Jihad’ by allotting a Hindu girl Mahira Khan to share bed with a Kashmiri Muslim man Asim Riaz, now the Confederation of All India Traders has written to I&B Ministry seeking a ban on the show.

According to a report on The Hindu Business Line, the traders’ body has appealed to I&B Minister to ban the show for “our country’s traditional and cultural values are being tarnished in the lust of TRP and profits.”

The secretary of CAIT, Praveen Khandelwal, thinks the concept of BFF is highly immoral.“In the current show, the concept of ‘Bed Friend Forever’ is highly deplorable and is against all moral ethics of the television world. The makers of the show have forgotten that it is the prime time slot on TV when this show is telecast and people of all age groups watch the show,” he was quoted as saying.

This all started after a picture of couple and former Bigg Boss contestants Suyyash Rai and Kishwar Merchant went viral on social media. Many mistook it for a picture showing Mahira Sharma and Asim Riaz. But turned out, the photo wasn’t from this season

But turns out, this picture is not from this season. The picture, in fact, is from Bigg Boss season 9 and shows contestants Suyyash Rai and Kishwar Merchant, who entered as a couple and are now married.
