Zee TV’s long running show Qubool Hai again comes under the scanner of BCCC after receiving repeated complaints for showcasing excessive violence against women in the show.
Recently, in one of the episodes it was shown how a woman was being tortured by her in-laws by suffocating her with a plastic bag. In their defence the channel said, they were not trying to glorify any kind of domestic abuse. The scene was shot to just create some drama element. Earlier also a complaint against the show was lodged with the BCCC.
The BCCC has asked the channel to show a warning while depicting such scenes and also to air an apology scroll, on February 9th between 9:30 pm to 10 pm during the half an hour slot when Qubool Hai originally airs. The channel will be complying by the order.
