New Delhi: Sony channel has been directed by The Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC) to shift their daily soap "Pehredaar Piya Ki" to the 10 pm slot and run it with a scroll saying it does not promote child marriage. The serial focuses on a nine-year-old boy, Ratan (Afaan Khan), and his marriage to 18 -year-old Diya (Tejasswi Prakash). The show currently airs in the 9 pm time slot has been slammed on social media for its "regressive" content with many viewers. A petition was also started online asking the Information and Broadcasting Ministry to ban the show. Creators of the soap, however, deny that it is regressive and is just a work of fiction.
