Pk is Going strong at the box- office but the protest against the film is not just coming to an end. Raj Kumar Hirani Directorial, Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer PK has getting great appreciation from critics and common audience alike. People from all sections of the society liking the film and it is still going full houses in the theaters. But because of the theme of the film, it looks like this film has stimulated certain kind of protest against itself from certain religious sections of the society.
Firstly it was the Hindutva supporters who gone against the film saying that it mocked at their beliefs. Now it’s the turn of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), which now came against certain scenes of the film. The members of this board demands that the censor board must intervene in this matter and they have to remove some scenes from the film and thereby they must make sure that the communal harmony in the society is maintained properly and it should not be allowed to be disturbed with the scenes of a film.
According to the head of the board Maulana Khalid Rashid Farangi Mahali it was came to their attention that some scenes of film PK hurts religious sentiments of the people and it should not be entertained. It is not a good thing to follow. He said that Freedom of expression is ok, but it will not be used to or it does not mean hurting someone’s sentiments whether it is religious or not. He said that if there is such scenes which hurt the sentiments of the people are there in the film , the Censor Board must remove it with immediate effect to maintain peace in the society.
He also said that now a days even small things are blown out of proportion and and the film makers had to think twice and make precautions before they are saying about issues like ‘Love Jihad’ and Conversion . He told that if the film had scenes or dialogues which hurt religious sentiments, and when a muslim Aamir khan is playing the role of a hindu character, it will become a double edged sword as people will take it otherwise or in the negative sense.
