Why do you want to gauge Hindus' level of tolerance? Adipurush producers are criticised by the Allahabad High Court for their crude depictions of Ramayana figures.
The makers of the film Adipurush were severely criticised by the Allahabad High Court today for their offensive representation of figures from the Ramayana. The High Court noted that Hindus' level of tolerance is being put to the test by the film industry.
According to Live Legal, the Judge Rajesh Singh Chauhan and Justice Shree Prakash Singh bench stated that the CBFC should have taken additional action before approving the film.
Should the nice person be silenced? Is that true? It is fortunate that it concerns a religion whose adherents haven't interfered with public order. We ought to be grateful. According to the report, some individuals went to a few movie theatres, but all they managed to accomplish was force the screening to end.
There was also something they could have done. The bench questioned, "Does it indicate that their tolerance would continue to be tried if we close our eyes on this issue too because it is said that the adherents of this religion (Hindus) are highly tolerant?
The Adipurush movie's crude vocabulary and portrayal of Ramayana figures were the subject of two PILs being heard by the bench.
The bench further criticised the filmmakers for attempting to duck criticism by stating that only some of the Ramayana was used as inspiration for their film.
"Do the ones who wrote the disclaimer think the masses and the youth are stupid? Then you claim that it is not the Ramayana after displaying Lord Rama, Lord Laxman, Lord Hanuman, Ravana, and Lanka.
The bench responded to the argument that some dialogues had been modified by saying, "That alone won't work. How are you going to use the scenes? Ask for guidance, and we'll do anything we want to accomplish without a doubt... Those whose religious sensibilities have been offended will feel some relief if the film's showings are halted.
In addition, the court granted the petitioners' request to include dialogue writer Manoj Muntashir as a party respondent and ordered that a notice be given to him.
With attorneys Ranjana Agnihotri and Sudha Sharma, social activists Kuldeep Tiwari and Bandana Kumar filed the PILs.
