Loveratri: Court asks Police to file FIR against Salman Khan for hurting Hindu SentimentsCourt directed the police to lodge an FIR against actor Salman Khan and the cast and crew of film Loveratri on the basis of a complaint that the title and contents of the movie had hurt the Hindu sentiments.
A court on Wednesday directed the police to lodge an FIR against actor Salman Khan and the cast and crew of upcoming Bollywood film "Loveratri" on the basis of a complaint that the title and contents of the movie had hurt the Hindu sentiments. Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate (East) Shailendra Rai directed the Mithanpura police station in the town to lodge an FIR, based on a complaint filed in the court by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha.
Sudhir Kumar Ojha has taken exception to the title of the film, alleging that it is meant to make fun of the holy festival of Navaratri. He has also claimed that the film's scheduled release on October 5 is likely to hurt the Hindu sentiments.
In his complaint, in which Salman Khan, who is the producer of the film, its director and actors have been made parties, Sudhir Kumar Ojha has claimed that he has watched the promos of the film and they contained a lot of vulgarity.
The complaint was lodged before the court last week under IPC sections 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class), 298 (uttering words etc. with deliberate intent to wound the religious feelings of any person), 153 (want only giving provocation with intent to cause riot) 153B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integrity) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).
