Kolkata: The telecast of a Bengali TV serial based on Bangladesh author Taslima Nasreen`s script, has run into trouble with Maulana Nurur Rahman Barkati, Shahi Imam of the Tipu Sultan Mosque issuing a warning to the channel asking it not to broadcast the programme.

Barkati is said to have met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in this regard.

The serial named `Dusahobas’ is scripted by Taslima Nasreen and was scheduled to be aired tonight on Aakash Aath channel.
Reports suggest that Koklata police have asked the channel authorities not to telecast the serial.

According to Nasreen, the serial will portray women in strong roles, fighting against oppression and demanding their rights.
