Sharma rises from her seat while taking off her microphone to leave the set when she halts and rethinks. She walks towards the Baba and lands a slap on him. The Baba is taken aback but responds with full rigour and hits her back. What ensues is a nasty scuffle between them and the camera panning up to the ceiling. The head of the channel has condemned that act and said that guests are expected to be well-mannered.
It was just another day at IBN7 with a debate going on Radhe Maa when suddenly it turned violent. A panel of astrologers and religious leaders were involved in a usual ‘civil’ debate when things took a very nasty turn. Baba Om ji made personal remarks on astrologer Deepa Sharma commenting on her marital life. It was outright distasteful for anyone to take a dig at someone’s personal life.
