Deshdrohi banned

The freedom of Indians have again been curbed by Maharashtra government by banning the movie Deshdrohi in Maharashtra. The state government on Wednesday banned the Hindi film `Deshdrohi', saying it would create a divide between north Indians and Marathis. Now this is what I call hypocrisy at its extreme. On one hand they divide the north Indians and Marathis and on the other they are banning a movie, claiming it could widen the rift. They let Raj Thackeray, the only Marathi Manus (Not an Indian) go scot free. Why didn't they ban him and his party for spreading violence in the state.

Sometimes I feel it is very helpless with such people in power playing the dirty game. I could actually see how they played it when I saw one of their siblings (Rahul Mahajan) in the reality show Big Boss -2. The extent to which these un-ashamed politicians go is disgusting. Rohit Monserrate is another such example. People misusing power should be hanged till death. They give a bad name to the country and that is one of the reasons we are subject to racial divide in more advanced and civilized nations.

Mumbai police commissioner Hasan Gafoor said, "We had found certain scenes in `Deshdrohi' objectionable and had informed the government about it.'' Where was this guy when MNS workers with evil daddy Raj Thackeray were running amuck in the city.

Cinema if not complete, shows a part of reality and it should not be curbed. We are living in a free society and we should be given the right to watch it too. Luckily with blogs there is no such banning till now and this being the 200th post of the blog, I wish to continue speaking on Speak India with your support and co-operation.

Changing colours of MNS

MNS leader Raj Thackeray's lawyer, watched the film at a special screening, he said there was "nothing objectionable'' in it. "The promos are misleading.'' But soon after the government's announcement that it would ban the film, MNS spokesperson Shirish Parkar demanded legal action against Kamal Khan, the producer-director of `Deshdrohi'.

Blind Congress

Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh said such films spreading hatred must be banned. What about people and prties spreading hatred ?? Why aren't they banned ??

Mahesh Bhatt's View on Times of India

Mahesh Bhatt said,

"It's a shame that those who claim to be the crusaders of freedom have violated the rights of freedom of speech of the film-maker. They are no different from any repressive regime. You can't use the pretext of law and order to ban a film.''
