Films that hurt religious sentiments should not be made: Digvijay


Bhopal: Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today said that films that hurt religious sentiments of people and which are not based on historical facts should not be made.

Singh’s remarks came after he was asked about the controversy over the film Padmaavat, which was released today.

The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed period drama evoked sharp reactions from particular groups, including the Karni Sena, which were against its screening.

“Films that hurt the sentiments of people of a particular religion or caste and which are not based on historical facts should not be made,” he told reporters.

Singh, a former Madhya Pradesh chief minister, is currently undertaking the ‘Narmada Yatra’ in the state.

However, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi hit out at the BJP which leads the government in Haryana, where anti-Padmaavat protesters attacked a bus carrying children, alleging the party’s use of “hatred and violence” is setting the country on fire.

The Congress President also condemned the violence against children by the mobs which have been protesting the release of the controversial film.

Meanwhile, theatre owners in Madhya Pradesh today decided not to screen controversial film “Padmaavat” even as the state witnessed protests and bandh in several places against the period drama.

The state government, however, said it was ready to provide security if the theatre owners wanted to screen the movie.

A delegation of cinema and multiplex owners, under the aegis of the Central Cine Circuit Association (CCCA), met Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh and later announced that they would not screen the as of now.

“During the meeting, we conveyed to the chief minister that the cinema hall owners are not going to release the movie in Madhya Pradesh as protests against the have burgeoned,” theatre owner, Azizuddin, who was a part of the delegation, said after the meeting.

“We are also concerned about the public sentiments,” he said.
