Bajrang Dal try to disrupt screening of ‘PK’

Agra: Aamir Khan’s starrer ‘PK’, which was released on December 19, may have opened to rave reviews and received a great response in the box-office with the film revenue exceeding over Rs 200 crore across the country in the first week of its release but Bajrang Dal members think otherwise. The members of right-wing organization alleged that the film had several scenes that denigrated Hindu deities and hurt religious sentiments of the people.

Bajrang Dal members staged a demonstration outside Shree Talkies here on Sunday afternoon to protest against the screening of the movie. The theatre authorities managed to stop the demonstrators from disrupting the show but a few members of the right wing organization jumped over the wall and tore a large poster of the film on display outside the cinema hall. Others tried to disrupt he show by entering inside the hall but the authorities closed the doors from inside.

The demonstrators later raised slogans against Aamir Khan and Raju Hirani (the maker of the film). They stopped people from purchasing tickets. They finally left the spot when the theatre owners threatened to call police.

The members of Bajranag Dal alleged that there are several scenes in the film which hurt Hindus and their religious sentiments.

“The romantic track between Anushka Sharma (shown as an Indian girl) and Sushant Singh Rajput (a Pakistani boy) is also being seen as promoting love jihad,” said Dharmendra Asoliya, member of Bajrang Dal.

“The film’s protagonist ‘PK’ points out to strange customs that each religion is associated with. And while he takes on every prominent religion in the country — Hinduism, Islam and Christianity — some people believe that taking on a Hindu godmen in the film is a direct insult to the community. Why do people take everything on religion,” said Vanisha Ahuja, who was at the theatre when the protest was staged.
