Petitioner alleges Kareena’s book hurts religious sentiments

Christopher Anthony, a social activist from Jabalpur, MP has stated that the use of the word ‘Bible’ in the memoir’s title is hurtful to the sentiments of Christian community. He opined, “Bible is the holy book of Christianity all over the world and it is wrong to compare Kareena Kapoor Khan’s pregnancy with the Bible.” The book published in 2021, highlighted on Kareena’s pregnancy journey and included tips and suggestions for pregnant mothers. The petitioner moved to the lower court to file a complaint against Kareena after the police rejected to register an FIR against the actor. The lower court also declined his petition on grounds that he failed to establish how the use of the word “Bible” in the title was offensive. The Additional Sessions Court also dismissed his complaint.
