Its creator Prakash Jha has targeted Rajput Karni Sena for creating controversy over the web series ‘Ashram Chapter 2 The Dark Side’. Speaking to Spotboye, he said, “Who am I to judge on their demand? We had over 400 million views on the first season. I think viewers will decide whether the series is spreading negativity or positivity.”
Maharashtra Karni Sena sent notice
A notice was sent to Prakash Jha on behalf of Surjit Singh, state organization minister of the Maharashtra branch of Karni Sena. It was said that the trailer of ‘Ashram-Chapter 2 The Dark Side’ has hurt Hindu religious sentiments in a big way. Also, a negative image of Hinduism is being kept in front of generations to come.
It further wrote in the notice that the characters in the trailer are not targeting any particular person, but are being misinformed about ancient traditions, customs, Hindu culture, ashram religion, which are confusing people.
Questions were also raised on the first season
In the notice, questions were also raised by the Karni Sena on the first season of ‘Ashram’. He wrote in the notice that in the first season many objectionable things were shown about the ashram system and the same work is continued in season 2. The Karni Sena has opposed tarnishing the image of Hindu religion ashrams. Also demanded to remove the trailer and immediately stop the release of the entire web series.
