NEW DELHI: Activists of right-wing outfits Bajrang Dal and Hindu Sena today staged a protest outside a cinema hall in Central Delhi, demanding ban on Aamir Khan blockbuster ‘PK’ for allegedly hurting religious sentiments.
The demonstrators also burned posters of the movie and demanded that an FIR be registered against its makers and star cast.
“Some agitators staged a protest outside Delite cinema. They were detained and taken to the nearby police station,” said a senior police official.
Protesters also raised slogans against the movie demanding ban on its screening across the country.
“The movie should not be screened any more as it hurts the sentiments of Hindus. We also demand registration of an FIR against the star cast of the movie,” said a protester.
The film earned Rs 214 crore in the first nine days after its release on December 19.
Meanwhile, Yoga guru Ramdev also said that tradition and faith of people should not be hurt.
“The film PK, as people have told me, has two things.One, it contains objectionable scenes of Hindu God and Goddesses, which is not right.
“But secondly, it has exposed those people who misuse the name of God for their personal profit and call themselves as God. However, the tradition and faith of people should not be hurt.” Ramdev said.
Sri Ram Sena also demanded that this movie should be banned.
“The movie PK hurts the sentiments of Hindus and we protest it. Indian government should banned it,” Pramod Muthalik said.
