How Violence Engulfed India After SC Refused To Ban 'Padmaavat'

How Violence Engulfed India After SC Refused To Ban 'Padmaavat'

Groups critical of the film, set to be released on Thursday, have accused its director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, of distorting history by portraying a Muslim ruler as the "lover" of the Hindu Queen Padmavati of the Rajput warrior clan. "We want to release the film, but have no support from the government".

A bandh call by the Rajput Karni Sena against the release of controversy-hit film "Padmaavat" today failed to make any major impact in Gujarat, but none of the theatres in the state screened the movie for security reasons.

The real-life war over Padmaavat between the Hindu extremists and makers of the film well-backed by the Supreme Court and liberal Indians is a flawless case to ponder over as we celebrate the 69th Republic Day on Friday.

Two people have been taken into custody after creating a ruckus and burning vehicles in protest against the film "Padmaavat" in Bhopal. And to take everyone by surprise, even after all the major hue and cry over the film's release by Karni Sena and others, the film managed to sell out most of its tickets for the preview.

Many on social media used good dose of sarcasm to attack the Hindu right-wing groups for protesting against Padmaavat.

Call it drama or horror; this is how lumpen elements, who have created violence and mayhem in various parts of the country over the film Padmaavat, even before watching it, hijacked the nation since a year ago. Police arrested 50 people in connection with the violence outside malls in Ahmedabad last night.

He said authorities had found that Dylan, now 32, was probably coached by her adoptive mother Mia Farrow "to tell the story". On the same day, Firth released a public statement via the Guardian and announced he won't work with Woody Allen again.

The protests are expected to continue around the country.

As announced yesterday by the Gujarat Multiplex Owners Association, none of the theatres, be it multiplexes or single-screen, showed the movie in the state.

"Our primary concern is the security of our employees and audiences". He was detained by the police Karni Sena members protested outside a cinema in Lucknow around the same time today.

In Chhattisgarh, dozens of members of the Rajput community staged protests and burned an effigy of Bhansali on Tuesday, Rakesh Singh Bais of the community group Sarwa Kshatriya Mahasabha told Reuters. It underlined that "valued constitutional rights" were at stake, and added that it is the "duty and obligation of states to maintain law and order".

While dismissing the plea, it had then said, "Needless to say, . we think it apposite to strike off what has been stated in paragraph nos.17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 in entirety and what has been struck off by this Court should not be used otherwise".
