Controversy over MX Player’s web series ‘Ashram’ is nothing new. Even before the release of the second season, ‘Ashram Chapter 2 – The Dark Side’, the trailer had raised objections from several Hinduist organizations and demanded a ban on it. Now the matter has reached the court. A legal notice has been issued to both by the Jodhpur court regarding a case on Bobby Deol, who was seen in the lead role in the web series and Prakash, the producer of the series. The news agency ANI said that the next hearing of the court in this case will be on January 11.
Advocate Kush Khandelwal had filed a petition in the District and Sessions Court of Jodhpur, on which the order of Ravindra Joshi has given this order. However, there are reports that the court refused to order an FIR against Bobby Deol and Prakash Jha. There is so much uproar over the ‘Ashram’ series because Bobby Deol plays a hypocritical religion guru in it. Bobby Deol’s character’s name is ‘Kashipur Wale Baba Nirala’. Under the guise of religion, his character does every wrong thing and he also has a profound influence on politics.
A section has raised strong objection against this series as they say that the series has tried to discredit the ashram system and this has hurt their religious sentiments. Radical Hinduist organization Karni Sena had raised a strong objection to this and even demanded the arrest of Prakash Jha.

The state president of the Maharashtra branch of the organization, Surjit Singh, had sent a notice to Prakash Jha asking that the release of the web series be banned. In this, the Ashram system has been wrongly introduced due to which people are getting confused.
Anger against this web series was seen in many places in the country. People filed FIRs and petitions everywhere stating that the faith of Hindus has been attacked through the hypocritical Baba in the Ashram series. However, this series has received a good response on MX Player and now Bobby Deol is also shooting for its third season.
