On Tuesday, Swami Divyanand Maharaj had raised objection over the scenes in Tandav. He had reportedly threatened that "tandav" (violence) will be witnessed in Ranchi if the objectionable scenes are not removed.
"On a regular basis they make a mockery of Hindu culture in movies. The sadhus and pandits are shown as comedians. The gods and goddesses' original shape are changed in movies. Hindu society is hurt by such acts," said Divyanand Maharaj.
Different organisations also took out a protest march against the web series.
