Claiming it to be wrong, misleading and unreal, the Kshatriya Community of Udaipur has expressed anger over the TV serial being aired on Sony TV, “Bharat ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap” based on Maharana Pratap. The community is preparing to take legal action against it.
Tanveer Singh Krishnavat, patron of Sakal Rajput Mahasabha said that the serial on Sony is insulting the character of Maharana Pratap; incidents of Pratap’s life are presented erroneously.
Krishnavat said that Maharana Pratap was the first freedom fighter of India; he was accompanied with many Muslim fighters and supporters from Mewar. “He fought for freedom against the Mughals; Maharana Pratap was not anti-Muslim”, said Krishnavat.
The TV serial is showing Maharana Pratap as opposing the Muslims, which is wrong and defaming the persona of Maharana Pratap.
A statewide protest might take place in the coming days; Rajput organizations are also preparing to approach the High Court.
The serial “Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap” is produced by Cantiloe Entertainment and is being aired since May 27, 2013 on Sony channel.
