Politics is raging over the controversial film ‘The Kerala Story’. Which state government is praising it and which state government has banned it. The film has received a mixed response across the country.
Yesterday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee banned the film in her state, while Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath made it tax-free in Uttar Pradesh. In addition, he said that he will watch its special screening. It has been reported that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will watch the film with his cabinet ministers at Lok Bhavan on 12th.
Earlier, Madhya Pradesh government made ‘The Kerala Story’ tax free. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan also praised the film.
Union Minister Giriraj Singh has demanded to make the film tax free in Bihar. Similarly, there is a demand to make it tax free in all BJP ruled states.
On the other hand, the multiplex association of Tamil Nadu has decided not to run the film. The Kerala government is also opposing the film. Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has strongly criticized the producer and director of this film.
It is worth noting that in ‘The Kerala Story’ starring Ada Sharma, Hindu and Christian young women in Kerala are converted to Islam and then sent to countries like Afghanistan, Yemen and Syria to join terrorist organizations to fight for Islam.
Kerala’s ruling CPI (M) and the opposition Congress have said that the claim made in ‘The Kerala Story’ that 32 thousand women of the state were converted, joined terrorist organizations and executed in other parts of India and the world is a complete lie.
