Shameful: Panelists resort to physical violence on IBN7 ‘Radhe Ma’ debate

MUMBAI: In today’s highly opinionated and competitive age, people’s tolerance levels are plummeting and getting your voice heard above the din might as well be called a major feat accomplished. In what can definitely be termed as a new low on Indian television, panelists on IBN7’s evening show debate on self-proclaimed God woman Radhe Ma, resorted to physical violence.


While one frequently witnesses verbal duals, usage of unparliamentary language and heated arguments on news channel debates, panelists on Hindi news channel IBN7 gave viewers a look into the most shocking and shameful incident on 13 September’s live evening show.


The panel comprised astrologer Rakhi Bai, self proclaimed dharam gurus Om Maharaj and Deepa Sharma. While debating on the channel’s show called Aaj Ka Mudda, where the discussion was on the controversial God woman Radhe Ma, things out of hand when panelists started fighting and slapping each other.


During the heated discussion, Sharma stood up, removed her mic and moved to Om Maharaj and began slapping him on his face following which Om Maharaj also physically assaulted her after saying: “Tu kya marengi mujhe!” 


If these are India’s so called God men and God women, they leave a lot left to be desired. Even as IBN7 has condemned this act that took place on their channel, it’s time that the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) takes note of such incidences and gives channels arap on the knuckles.
