Hindu extremists call off protest after watching 'Padmaavat'
Published at: 4 month(s) ago

Mumbai, India: Hindu extremists called off the protest against the filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's most controversial epic movie ‘Padmaavat’, saying that the movie portrayed the sacrifices of Hindu Rajputs, Indian media reported.

Ever since the trailer was released last year, Hindu extremist party Shiv Karni Sena protested against the film, claiming that it is against the honour of the Rajput community and paints their ancient (and fictional) Rani Padmini in a bad light. In order to validate their threats, the party members put ransom on the heads of actor Deepika Padukone (who plays Rani Padmavati) and Bhansali himself.

Padmaavat has tainted Alauddin Khilji. The film portrayed the Muslim ruler as a very barbaric king, while the history said that he was a great leader. According to The Famous People, he reduced taxes of agriculture produce by 50% so as to lessen the burden on the cultivators. Despite being a strategic leader, the film denies Khilji’s contribution to economy – making him a hateful antagonist in the film.

Its is believed that the Hindu extremists called off the protest due to the hatred towards Muslims that was being quenched by the anti-Muslim plot of ‘Padmaavat’.
