Haryana minister wants Padmavati release stalled

Chandigarh Nov 13 (IANS) Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Monday joined the anti-"Padmavati" bandwagon and asked the censor board to stall its release.



In a statement here Vij said the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) should withhold the release of film "Padmavati" "keeping in view the people s sentiments".

"The Information and Broadcasting Minister has already been apprised about people s sentiments in this regard " Vij said.

Opposing the release of the movie the minister said Rani Padmavati was the pride of the country.

"She along with 16 000 women had committed self-immolation (jauhar) after Raja Rana Ratan Singh fell in the war. It is an insult to show a princess of such high character dancing in public. It is highly objectionable as it tampers with history.

"Why don t people like Bhansali get the story of the likes of Alauddin Khilji who hurt the Indian masses for their films? There are a lot of sagas of heroes in Indian culture which could be showcased to the society. But Bhansali would not do this as he wants to work for promoting a single ideology " added Vij who is known for being outspoken.

The film is slated to release on December 1.
