Dear Karni Sena, kindly stop this ruckus

Yesterday, the Supreme Court set aside the notification passed by the states of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, and Rajasthan against the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial ‘Padmaavat’. The apex court has also restricted all other states from issuing such a ban on the exhibition of the film starring Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor, and Deepika Padukone.

In order to mitigate the storm which was surrounding the release of the film, the Central Board of Film Certification decided to take the responsibility of mitigating the complete issue. The review committee of the CBFC and a special panel of some historians recommended five modifications which have been incorporated by the filmmakers. But despite all of these things done, the Shri Rajput Karni Sena isn’t satisfied at all.

Just because someone gets hurt does not mean at all that they have to create an issue, there is an option of not watching the film that few exercise. Instead of causing harm seems to be a more apt solution, ironically for a nation that became famous for its non-violence movement. The image of Mahatma Gandhi is printed on every currency, hangs in every school, office, and station yet people choose the path of violence in order to show their disapproval.

This is not a first, several times in the past films set have been vandalized and film stopped from releasing and yet there is no solid action from the netas to defend the artists. Of course, standing up for the national anthem in a theatre while littering the streets is perfectly patriotic, while making a work of art is not so. India doesn’t deserve films like PK, Satyagraha, Aarakshan, The Lunchbox it needs them. Maybe our dear censor board needs to ban commercial movies that are “sanskaari” and clean and let the raw, rough true India come out.
