While filing the F.I.R., Adv P Gavas, the state joint secretary of the All India Youth Federation (AIYF) of the CPI in Kerala, said, “The programme that this channel telecast is not rooted in a system that we believe in. We acknowledge and believe in the constitutional obligations towards all religions and the secular values of this country. This programme stands in stark contrast to such beliefs. It is against a particular religious community." [1]Indian Express
