Protesters attack MTV office in Mumbai
A group of Sikhs vandalised the office of the popular music channel MTV in central Mumbai alleging misrepresenation of their community in a recent publicity campaign. Over 100 protestors who indulged in damaging property at Parel’s MTV office were detained by the police for various violations, including unlawful assembly.
The activists have broken a few window panes and some office stationery in the protest. In a recent publicity campaign in promotion of a reality show, MTV has used the visual of a Sikh peeping into a room where a girl is giving body massage to a man, police said, adding that the hoardings also have a line which was found to be in bad taste by the Sikh community.
