The information and broadcasting ministry on Wednesday again issued a show cause notice to Colors channel, this time for depicting excessive violence against women in the
Rishton Se Badi Pratha
show, based on honour killings.
A ministry official said the show denigrates the image of women and the channel has been given seven days to reply.
"The channel has been issued a show cause notice for showing explicit torture and violence against women. It is denigrating their image and lowering their integrity," a ministry official told
"The evaluation has been done on the basis of the episodes telecast on Dec 21-22 and the channel has been given seven days to reply," the official added.
However, the channel officials denied receiving any notice so far and said they will comment only when they receive it.
Earlier, the ministry had issued notice to the channel on November 16, directing it to shift the reality show
away from prime time as the show offended "good taste and decency".
