Adipurush Teaser Controversy: Legal Notice Against Om Raut For ‘Islamizing’ Ramayana, ‘Generally Apologize Or Mask…’
Jaipur: The Sarva Brahmin Mahasabha on Thursday issued a notice to Prabhas and Kriti Sanon starrer ‘Aadipurush’ director Om Raut asking him to remove the controversial scenes from the film within 7 days or face legal action.
Advocate Kamlesh Sharma sent the notice on behalf of the national president of the Sarva Brahmin Mahasabha. Suresh Mishra.
“The depiction of Hindu Gods in this film is wrong. The Hindu Gods in this film are very defaced, dressed in leather and speak vulgarly. Very vulgar language is used in the film to incite and hurt religious sentiments. The film contains lines and depictions that spread religious and caste hatred. Ramayana is our history, though spirit. In Adipurush, Hanuman is shown as a Mughal,” the notice said.
“Bearded Hindu without moustache, depicted as Hanumanji.” This film is a complete Islamization of Ramayana and Rama, Maa Sita and Hanuman. Even Saif Ali Khan, who plays Ravana in Adipurush, looks like Taimur and Khilji. The film is going to incite religious sentiments in the country and spread hatred among a certain class. This image which is completely harmful to our society and country is widely spread through internet. “You are making a film to hurt the sentiments of crores of Hindus,” the notice said.
“Don’t play with people’s sentiments, don’t tarnish people’s faith, we ask you to portray the film as depicted in Ramayana and Ramacharita Manas”.
Therefore, by sending a legal notice, public apology for the above actions and removal of all chat charts within seven days, failing which legal action will be taken, said the notice.
