A local court accepted a plea by Hindu Mahasabha against Bollywood superstars Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and a private TV channel for purportedly showing the actors inside a temple wearing shoes during a reality show.

The court has fixed the date for hearing on January 18.

“A scene with Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan inside a Kali temple on the sets of TV reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ was broadcast by Colors channel in December last year,” Bharat Rajput, president of Hindu Mahasabha’s Meerut unit said.

Rajput said that he had written a letter to the SSP and the District Magistrate of Meerut on December 23 and also sent an email to the channel over the issue.

He alleged that no one should enter any religious places with their shoes and airing it on TV was insensitive as it hurt people’s religious sentiment.

Rajput said, when the channel didn’t respond and the administration or the police didn’t take steps over the issue, a petition was filed at the court of CJM Sanjay Kumar Singh against the channel, the programme’s director and also Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan.

      This is just pathetic and they are just jealous of the kings of Bollywood. They are trying to find faults to bring down the kings of Bollywood. Instead of that, please pay attention to kidnapping, stealing, raping young and incocent girls. Shame on the corrupted government. You should be proud of your two super stars. They are building your country with their businesses. It just a shame.

                Since it is a dummy temple, is it ok if he takes a leak inside? Let us ume it is a dummy temple. What is the purpose of showing a dummy temple in a show or movie? Is it for a religious purpose or for promoting satire? A few years back Shah Rukh was shown taking a leak on the outside walls of a church. He was forced to apologize by Christian groups and the scene deleted. Conversely, if a dummy church or mosque is shown instead of a temple, and a couple r shown kissing inside or with shoes inside, is it ok? It is precisely due to Secular Hindus with the 'so what' atude, that, people like these Khans are going on with their insults freely and unabated.

                      They are the sons of Jai Ma Kaali. Honestly in a home, sons do wear shoes/chappals in front of mother. If anyone takes the ancestor history of both khan-du's, you will find that their ancestors had converted. But, still the court must give a severe / harsh punishment to deter the other monkeys of the film fraternity. Now, one challenge to the both khan-du's, if they are really born to one father, (ie. their respective fathers) will they do the same in a mosque?

                            Courts should devote their time to serious complaints. After presiding over the Salman acquital, Jayalalita acquital ,and 1984 Sikh riots the courts need to play a much better role.

                              Shah Rukh's Swadesh and Amir's Lagaan are benchmark for Indians and can not be competed by Gajendra Chauhan's jungel Love and Pankaj Nihalani's Andaaz.

                                      I think the guy who is pursuing this should be investigated. Maybe he's done something worse that (his_guilty conscience is bothering him.

                                        Oh PLeaseee! It wasn't even a REAL Temple. I think this is soooooo stupid. I'm sure there are much more important things going on in India, Like ISIS training Indians to scout out forests where they can train more and to make bombs to attack India.

                                          The statue of the goddess is JUST A "statue". IT doesn't even care. IT can't hear you or see you. I guess some of you Indians ARE "Intolerant" . It doesn't make you look very good. Could be bad for tourism if you guys are so stupid about "trivial" matters.
