Amitabh Bachchan may have received huge compliments and accolades for hosting Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) successfully season after season but seems like one person isn't too impressed with what Mr. Bachchan had to say in one of the episodes of KBC that aired almost a year ago.
Mudassir Ullah Khan, a resident of Jhansi, has taken exception to the use of the phrase 'racha gaya' (composed) in the context of the Holy Quran as said by Bachchan in the KBC episode that aired on 28.09.2011. Khan has filed a petition in the Allahabad High Court accusing Bachchan of having made a derogatory remark about the Holy Quran with malicious intention. Khan said that the Holy Quran was neither composed nor created; it rather came into existence through Allah's mercy itself. He has even accused the manager of Sony Entertainment Television and the main programmer sponsor of KBC in his petition.
The petition is likely to be heard before a Bench next week.
