A member of Shiv Sena’s IT cell has filed a case against Netflix India for globally defaming Hindus via various original shows like Laila, Ghoul, Sacred Games and Hasan Minhaj’s Patriot Act, ANI has reported.
The Shiv Sena leader Ramesh Solanki in his complaint submitted at Mumbai's LT Marg police station claims that shows like Laia, Ghoul, Sacred Games and Patriot Act intend to defame Hindus globally.
“Almost every series on Netflix India is with the intention to defame the country on a global level. It is with deep-rooted Hinduphobia that the platform is portraying the nation in a bad light”, alleged Solanki in the complaint.
“One cannot allow an incorrect generalisation based on bogus rhetoric trying to defame (Hindus)“, he added.
He thus demanded that the police should take necessary legal action against Netflix for Hurting Hindu sentiments. He also urged the cops to watch the cited shows and summon the filmmakers and if possible cancel their licences.
