Mumbai, January 26,2017:-VHP leader Ranchhod Bharwad also slammed SRK for casting Pakistani actor Mahira Khan as the female lead, alleging that she made anti-India statements after going back to Pakistan, reports PTI.
“We believe that government should ban the movie and book Khan for sedition for making such a movie,” said Bharwad.
The VHP leader also held Khan responsible for the death of a person at Vadodara railway station two days back, when the crowd which had gathered to have a glimpse of the actor went out of control.
Police must book Khan for the death, he said. “Government should ban this movie, as it indulges in hero-worshipping of mafia dons,” said Bharwad.
A few VHP and Bajrang Dal workers shouted slogans outside a theatre in Valsad this morning. Police dispersed them before the situation could worsen, said a police officer.
The Gujarat unit of Shiv Sena also asked the BJP government in the state to stop the screening of Raees, claiming that “portrayal of Abdul Latif as a hero” would encourage bootleggers and anti-social element.
“Instead of highlighting police officers who tamed Latif, the makers have projected Dawood Ibrahim’s aide Latif as a hero of the masses,” said Sena leader Ashok Sharma.
