MP, Rajasthan petition SC against 'Padmaavat'

MP, Rajasthan petition SC against 'Padmaavat'

The SC even restrained other states from issuing any order to prohibit the screening of the film.The producers and the director of the film petitioned the SC against the ban.

The fresh update is that the two states Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh petitioned the Supreme Court for a review on its order on the nationwide release of Padmaavat.

Protests and acts of vandalism were reported from various parts of MP, including in Indore, Ujjain and Jhabua on Monday. The state governments further petitioned the apex court to be allowed to stop the film. The title of the film was also changed from "Padmavati" to "Padmaavat".

"The state law department as well as the advocate general has examined the supreme court verdict directing to lift ban on the film".

If the State governments succumb under such threats, the majesty of the law will be in tatters and more and more fringe elements will feel emboldened to take the law into their own hands.

The organization also warned theater owners not to screen the movie.

However, Karni Sena supremo Lokendra Singh Kalvi has said that neither he nor his group "endorses" the violence at the DND flyover. The Haryana CM told that it would be nice if no one comes forward to screen the film and also added that his government is ready to provide protection for the screening of the film as it was Supreme court's order. On Sunday, Rajput women took out a "Chetavani Rally" wielding swords in Chittorgarh on Sunday (22 January). And as intense protests spread across Rajasthan, the release of the film got delayed, waiting for censor's clearance till now.

The highway to Ujjain was blocked for hours, while police said that Karni Sena activists tried to hijack a truck and set it on fire in Indore.

The Shri Rajput Karni Sena has been organising violent agitations against the film across the country.

While the legend states that Queen Padmini made a decision to jump into fire rather than submit to Sultan Alauddin Khilji of Delhi, Rajasthani women claimed that at least 1900 women in the state have registered for "jauhar" in protest against the release of the movie.
