NEW DELHI : Small school children in Gurgaon also were not spared by the so called agitationists who were displaying horrifying level of goondaism when they dared to attack bus carrying small children .Actually they are bringing disrepute to Rajput community .
Protests erupted in many states against the release of film Padmavat . Large scale violence has been unleashed in BJP ruled states like Gujarat , Rajasthan ,Jammu and Kashmir ,MP ,Maharashtra , Haryana .Actually four states including Haryana were those which banned the release of the film even though Censor Board which is an authority under the I & B Ministry , Government of India cleared the film with some modifications.
In such case , ban by some state governments on the release of the film was not any other thing but disrespect to a central authority of film certification .the state governments took the job Censor Board into themselves .
This was when Supreme Court of India intervened .Producers of the film approached SC .Their case was submitted by advocate Agarwal .Three judge Bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Mishra along with Justice A M Khanvilkar , Justice Chandrachud heard the petition .
The producers challenged the powers of state governments to ban the film .It was said that SC in an earlier verdict had said that release of a film in any disturbed area can be suspended on the ground of serious law and order situation but states after states cannot impose ban order in their entire jurisdiction .
It amounts to a complete ban on the film in a state.
During the hearing on January 18, 2018 , CJI Dipak Mishra said ,” We are concerned that a film is being banned from being exhibited , expression of a creative content , my constitutional is shocked .”
Perhaps , CJI must have greater shocks today when violence spread in many states before 24 hours of release even in defiance of SC orders .SC had stayed the ban on the film by states of Gujarat , MP , Haryana ,Rajasthan , clearing the way for release of the film .But it seems that hooligans have no respect for SC verdict also .This is the signs of fascism .
