JAIPUR:  The  controversy over Padmavati is denying to die.  The latest to join the agitation over Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s periodic film is the Vishwa Hindu Parishad. On the one side Parliamentary Committee has summoned film director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and chairman of Censor board Prasoon Joshi on Thursday, while on the other side Praveen Togadia, international acting president of Vishva Hindu Parishad urged the government to ban the film.

Addressing the press here,  the fire brand Hindu leader said, if the film is screened in  theaters, there will be huge protest that one has never seen in history.

He said the film was against the sentiments of Hindu community. He virtually threatened that if Narendra Modi’s government does not take immediate intervention in the matter of banning the controversial film, then the people of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad will create a heinous scene by putting Cinema Hall on fire. Then, how and where people will go and watch movie. He said this is not a question of law and order, but it is a matter of our faith associated with Hindu religion.

 VHP Leader Joshi is the first one, who had asked the members of the committee that the film should be shown first to the experts. The release will be granted only after getting green signal from them. Today, Joshi has a muscular presence in a parliamentary committee on IT.

Lamenting that insulting Hinduism and religious people has become fashionable, Togadia said 'The film Padmavati should be banned’.

For the Hindus, Rani Padmini is a goddess and she and thousands of women had sacrificed their lives for the sake of Hindus in Chittorgarh. No disrespect of Rani Padmini would be tolerated, he said.

The film-maker of Padmavati, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, was speaking of freedom of expression. “If Mr. Bhansali is so concerned of freedom of expression, he should make a film on Prophet Mohammed,” he said.
