Pathaan: Protest erupt in Indore seeking a ban on movie
The activists of Veer Shivaji Group took out a protest march against the movie, seeking its ban
day after Madhya Pradesh home minister Narottam Mishra suggested a possible ban on Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone-starrer 'Pathaan', protests erupted in many parts of Indore on Thursday.
The activists of Veer Shivaji Group took out a protest march against the movie, seeking its ban.
They also set effigies of actors Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan on fire.
The members of the group alleged that the Hindu community is feeling offended by the content of the 'Besharam Rang' song.
This came as another outfit, the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, called for a boycott of 'Pathaan' for 'insulting' the colour saffron.
Mahasabha president Swami Chakrapani Maharaj, who is also the head of the Sant (Saint) Mahasabha, said that it seemed that Bollywood had taken 'supari' (contract money) for destroying Hindu traditions.
Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra had on Wednesday taken objection to actor Deepika Padukone's costume, saying if certain scenes are not "corrected", the government will consider what to do about its screening.
Mishra, the spokesperson of the state government, also said Padukone has been a supporter of the "Tukde Tukde gang as seen in the JNU case.
