Aashram accused of caste discrimination; FIR against Prakash Jha

An FIR was lodged in Luni police station in Jodhpur, accusing the web series of using derogatory words against Schedule Caste/Schedule Tribe communities

|

DR Meghawal, an advocate and resident of Luni, has lodged an FIR at the local station in Jodhpur Rural against filmmaker Prakash Jha for allegedly hurting the sentiments of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes and alleged insults hurled at the community in the web series Aashram, produced by him.

“The first episode of the first part of the Aashram addressed the caste-specific (term) Harijan and (used) disrespectful words while promoting caste discrimination, by classifying castes as lower and upper, during a scene of marriage. In one scene, the upper caste people are shown abusing and assaulting the people of alleged lower castes, promoting discrimination and untouchability,” said the complainant, DR Meghwal.

The complainant said that incidents like molestation and lynching are taking place during the processions of SC/ST communities in western Rajasthan — due to such “poor and loathsome” portrayal through social sites and web series.

“The has spoiled mutual harmony with the use of hateful words and by hurting mutual affection and brotherhood in the name of caste and religion. This is a act. Such acts spread disharmony between two classes,” the complainant said in the FIR.

Luni Sita Ram said that an FIR under relevant sections of the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, had been registered and a probe into the allegations has begun.
