Swami Agnivesh in Firing Line for Bigg Boss Comment

Daijiworld Media Network

New Delhi, Nov 9: Courting controversy seems to have become a favourite passtime with Swami Agnivesh. The former Team Anna member, who is all set to enter Bigg Boss, is now facing criticism for his comment comparing Bigg Boss to parliament.

Swami Agnivesh on Tuesday November 8 had said that he had agreed to enter Bigg Boss as he felt it was a better medium to reach out to the masses than the parliament.

"After thoughtful consideration I decided to participate as an inmate in the (Bigg Boss) house so that I could reach out to as many people as possible. The house is much better than the 'so-called' temple of democracy," he had said.

He also cited another reason for his decision - to make the women in the Bigg Boss house more aware of the situation of girls in the society.

"I want to make them realize just how many girl children are killed in the womb and how many women are burnt alive in the name of sati," he told a newspaper.

He added that many people had discouraged him from entering the show, but he stuck to his decision. "If I can stay with the Maoists, I can definitely stay with these people," the newspaper quoted him.

His comments have generated some heartburn among the parliamentarians, who have accused him of disrespecting the 'temple of democracy'.

"Agnivesh has entered a commercial programme. He is making such comments as per the commercial requirements of this programme," said BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi.

Swami Agnivesh faced criticism from the Supreme Court too, which told him to respect people's sentiments and not issue comments irresponsibly. The Apex Court said it while hearing a criminal case against him regarding his comments on the Amarnath shrine.
