The protest is increasing after Bajrang Dal workers attack on the shooting crew of web series Ashram-3 in Bhopal. Regarding the shooting of the ashram, MP Pragya Thakur said that she will ask Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on what basis permission to shoot was given? Did the administration read its script before permission? Didn't they know about it?
Along with this, she warned that now if anyone tries in any way to defame the systems and religion of Hindu Sanatan Dharma in this way, then she will express her protest against it. If necessary, legal action will also be taken against such people. She said that her akhara will now form a department, which will look after all such programs, films and web series. After that, if there is any kind of objectionable material, scene, photo and video in it, then we will complain against it and get that content cut.
Name of entire Hindu society is being maligned: Mahant Anilanand
Mahant Anilanand, spokesperson of Akhil Bharatiya Sant Samiti said that we demand that the name of the entire Hindu society is being maligned in the name of web series. All this is being done with conspiracy. If they want to make a film, immediately stop using names that defame Hindu society and change them. He said that shooting will not be allowed without fulfilling our demands. If our demands are not accepted, there will be further massive protests.
Meanwhile, the shooting continues even after protests and uproar over the web series Ashram-3 in Bhopal. It has not been stopped or turned off. The scenes related to the location of the series were filmed in the old jail itself till around 3 o'clock in the night. It is said that the lead actors, cameras and other items were shifted to another location in the night itself, although the buses are still standing in the old jail. In the morning, the people of the tent house packed their belongings and took them away.
Police also reached the spot, but they did not find any person related to the film there. Director Prakash Jha has neither made any complaint in this matter nor have the police stopped the shooting. DIG Bhopal Irshad Wali told that the shooting is going on. They are working according to their schedule. Four people who protested during the shooting have been arrested. Search is on for others. Action will be taken against others in this matter also.
Two parts of the web series Ashram have been made, but no objection was raised about it. The shooting of the third part is going on in Bhopal, in such a situation, the problems of Prakashs Jha may increase after its opposition.
However, Jha has now kept silence in this matter. After the uproar a day earlier, Prakash Jha's security personnel got the photos and videos taken by the media deleted. He has not made any complaint to the police till now. DIG Irshad Wali said that Jha has not made any complaint to the police. We are keeping an eye on the matter.
