72 Hoorain controversy: The complainant has accused the makers of the film of hurting religious sentiments.
A complaint has been lodged by a social worker in Mumbai against the makers of the film ’72 Hooren’. A written complaint has been lodged with the police, stating that the makers have tried to hurt the religious sentiments of a particular community and create a divide in the country.
The complaint was lodged at the Goregaon police station in Mumbai. His lawyer Ali Kashif Khan said the activist has submitted a separate complaint to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), seeking a ban on the screening of the film. According to PTI, the officer said that they have received the complaint, but no FIR (First Information Report) has been registered so far.
What is controversy?
The film is directed by Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan. The controversy started with the trailer of the film itself. It was reported that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had refused to give a censor certificate to the film’s trailer. The film’s trailer was released on YouTube after it was banned from releasing in theatres.
Regarding this, the film’s co-producer Ashok Pandit said in the press conference, “The censor board has asked us to remove some scenes and words from the trailer, but they have no objection to keep those scenes in the film. We are asking questions. This is a contradiction. The film is not against any religion and is dealing with terrorism.”
Why the controversy over the trailer of the film?
The trailer shows how teenage Muslims are motivated to join terrorist organizations. Starring Pawan Malhotra, Aamir Basheer, Rasheed Naaz and Ashok Pathak in lead roles, the film promises to expose faith molestation.
