Uttarakhand HC refuses to lift the ban on Kedarnath’s release

Uttarakhand HC refuses to lift the ban on Kedarnath’s release

With the latest orders by the DMs, it would mean that the film will not release now in state capital Dehradun, Haridwar, Pauri, Tehri, Nainital, Almora and Udhamsinghnagar.

The petitioner pleaded that the film promoted "love jihad" - a word coined by right-wing Hindu groups, to denote marriages between Muslim boys and Hindu girls.

The district magistrates of Nainital and Udham Singh Nagar on Thursday imposed a ban on the movie; however the state government has not announced an official ban as yet.

The division bench, comprising Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice Ramesh Chand Khulbe, also advised the petitioner to approach a high-powered committee formed by the state government under the chairmanship of tourism minister Satpal Maharaj. There has been much hype around the film as it is Sara's debut, and the starlet has quite an astounding fan-following, even before her debut film had released. They also contend that the kissing scene in the movie, the lead couple's romance and "vulgar" dance sequences set in the holy town are unacceptable.

In Kedarnath, Tarun plays a role of a pithu leader (people who carry pilgrims on their back), who fulfils the demands of pithus.

A similar PIL drew flak from the Gujarat high court on Wednesday. The committee decided not to ban the film after examining closely all objections raised.

The petition in Bombay High Court was filed by two local lawyers. We are not the censor board.

State Congress spokesperson Garima Mehra Dasauni said that while the Congress is in favour of promoting shooting in Uttarakhand, it is important to ensure that the said movie does not hurt religious sentiments. He asserted it was nothing but "love jihad" and a country-wide conspiracy.
