Police here on Friday booked actor Salman Khan for hurting religious sentiment of Muslims in a TV reality show hosted by him on Colors channel.

A case against Salman and producers of the show 'Bigg Boss' for insulting a religion was booked under section 295 of the Indian Penal Code at Falaknuma police station in the old city of Hyderabad.

Police Commissioner Anurag Sharma told reporters that the case was booked on the direction of a city court after a petitioner, in his complaint, alleged that the religious sentiments of Muslims were hurt during the show.

"Before proceeding further with the investigations in the case, we have sought legal opinion with regard to the jurisdiction and culpability," he said.

The police chief said the petition alleged that the show hurt the religious sentiments by depicting 'Jannat' (heaven) and 'Jahannum' (hell).

Mohammed Fasihuddin had filed a complaint in the court of VIth Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, which directed police to register a case.

    This has got to be the lamest reason for booking someone. So lame.

    And I thought Salman has made a controversial statement. When I read the reasoning, I was like WHAT?! Even though I believe Salman has made many grave mistakes on the show, I would certainly disagree with this one. To begin with, the concept of Hell and Heaven is not something restricted to Islam. All four Abrahamic religions subscribe to this view, so I don't see why it should be the sole concern of Muslims...
