"The show is against the culture and values of the country and has obscene content," Gujjar said in the letter. "The makers of the show are trying to create objectionable content by making Muslims and Brahmins bed partners."
The lawmaker urged Javadekar to keep a check on content that airs on television to prevent such incidents in the future.
Earlier, the Brahmin Mahasabha had also asked for the show to be banned.
