In the web series ‘Tandav’, the case of alleged mocking of religious sentiments is getting hot. Now an FIR has been registered against the entire team of Amazon Prime’s web series for inciting religious and caste sentiments in Uttar Pradesh, spreading envy in society, and damaging the government system.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s information adviser and BJP spokesperson Shalabh Mani Tripathi shared a copy of the FIR with his Twitter handle. The FIR, filed in 6 sections, including the IT Act, has accused Amazon India content head Aparna Purohit, Ali Abbas Zafar, director of the web series Tandav, producer Himanshu Krishna Mehra, writer Gaurav Solanki, and others.
