Activists against Pakistani stars on Indian Big Brother held

Posted by: AFP, Uploaded: 5th October 2010

Indian police on Tuesday detained 25 activists of the Hindu nationalist Shiv Sena party protesting against two Pakistani artists appearing on “Bigg Boss”, an Indian reality television show.

“Bigg Boss”, the local version of British reality show “Big Brother” ,started a new season Sunday and includes Pakistanis Veena Malik and Ali Saleem among the contestants.

“They (activists) were shouting slogans outside the “Big Boss” studio. We have detained them,” a police officer told AFP.

Security has been strengthened at the studio — where the reality TV stars live — in the holiday township of Lonavala in western Maharashtra, after Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray threatened to disrupt the show.

“Come what may, we will not allow the show,” Thackeray told media last week.
