THE FILM THAT CAUSES RIOTS IN INDIA

New Delhi / The movie “Padmaavat” has been released amid the deployment of thousands of police in front of movie theatres in the north of India, after a week of protests by radical Hinduists, acts of vandalism, burning of vehicles and urban material; and two dozen arrests.

According to announced the general director of the Police of Haryana, B.S. In Sandhu, 18 people have been arrested on charges of being involved in an attack on a school bus and the burning of an urban bus outside Gurgaon, a city in the state of Haryana that is part of the suburb of New Delhi.

“If we found someone involved in illegal activities, he will be immediately arrested and strict actions will be taken against him”, the police official said.

The film tells the story (or legend) of a thirteenth-century Rajput queen who committed suicide to protect her honour and that of her family after the death of her husband, King Rana Ratan Singh, at the hands of the Muslim Sultan Allaudin Khilji.

The controversy has arisen by a supposed scene in which the Muslim king dreams to obtain the love of the queen, scene that has indignant to the rajput and to sectors of the radical Hinduism, although the authors of the film assure that it does not exist.

The premiere of the film was cancelled last November, also because of the protests it unleashed and after the BJP press coordinator in Haryana, offered $ 1.5 million for the head of the film’s director, Sanjay Leela. Bhansali, and the interpreter Deepika Padukone.

Now, after passing the indifferent indifferent censorship and receiving support from the Supreme Court, the film, initially called “Padmavati”, has been projected as “Padmaavat” between strong security measures.

At the gates of the small Delite Diamond cinema in the capital, up to 60 policemen stood guard today while some curious people came to shoot photos to immortalize the striking picture.

“The producer and the director (of” Padmaavat “) are also Hindus. Why should they dishonour their own religion?”, the young Mohammed Zaid, 18, told EFE after buying his ticket. (January 25, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
