Madhya Pradesh MP issues ultimatum to designer Sabyasachi

Madhya Pradesh home minister Narottam Mishra on Sunday issued a 24-hour ultimatum to fashion and jewellery designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, to remove an advertisement of a mangalsutra.

Narottam Mishra said “the portrayal of the mangalsutra is “objectionable and obscene” in the ad as it features a woman wearing a low-neckline dress and posing with a man.

“I have warned earlier about such advertisements. I am personally warning designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, giving him a 24-hour ultimatum,” the minister said.

“If this objectionable and obscene advertisement is not withdrawn, then a case will be registered against him and legal action will be taken. The police force will be sent for the action,” he added.
