The Kerala Story is a film about how Hindu and Christian girls in Kerala are being targeted by Islamists for conversion and export to global terror group ISIS / IS (Islamic State) as ‘ISIS brides’ aka sex slaves for jihadis. The movie is based on real facts, and many of the cases such as Nimisha aka Fathima who is currently languishing in an Afghanistan jail with her child have even been widely covered in mainstream media.
In any normal society, the movie would be hailed as performing an important public service, and welcomed even by the Muslim community as it informs them of the rampant radicalization by groups like PFI happening in Islam’s name.
Yet, the movie has been branded as ‘controversial’ and ‘divisive’ by India’s left-liberal-secular-Islamist cabal, implying that they are in favor of such radical terrorist groups. Given the Hindumisia that binds this lot, such insanity is not surprising.
The Kerala Story has been banned – officially in West Bengal and unofficially in Tamil Nadu. This despite the courts of the county dismissing petitions filed against the movie. UK, which is increasingly susceptible to Islamist pressure groups, has also cancelled screenings of the movie on the pretext that the film is yet to get age certification from the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).
Now, it emerges that screening of the movie was cancelled for the fourth consecutive day in Bhainsa town of Telangana. Bhainsa, located in Nirmal district, has seen several vicious riots by Islamists targeting Hindus in recent years. Nirmal is also the place where Akbaruddin Owaisi delivered one of his infamous anti-Hindu hate speeches in 2012, for which the Indian judiciary recently acquitted him for ‘lack of evidence’.
This is how ‘The Hindu’, which is ironically as anti-Hindu a newspaper as one can imagine, reported this ban in Bhainsa –
“The screening of the controversial (sic) movie The Kerala Story has been cancelled for the fourth consecutive day in the communally sensitive (sic) town of Bhainsa in Nirmal district on Monday.
The movie was supposed to be screened at Kamala theatre, the only cinema hall in Bhainsa town. However, the theatre management deferred screening of the film after being allegedly denied permission by the local police to prevent any disturbance to public peace, sources said.
The move drew sharp criticism from the local BJP leaders and the cadre of its various frontal organisations. The sudden cancellation of the first show of the movie at Kamala theatre on Friday led to sit-in protests by the activists of “Hindu Vahini”.
A delegation of the BJP leaders led by the party district president P Rama Devi submitted a memorandum to the police officials on Monday seeking permission to screen The Kerala Story movie in Bhainsa town.
Ms Rama Devi questioned how the movie, which is being screened elsewhere in the country, could not be allowed to be screened in Bhainsa town alone. Meanwhile, the theatre management has been reportedly granted permission to screen the movie in two sessions — morning and afternoon sessions only, from Tuesday, sources added.
All the precautionary measures are in place to prevent any disturbance to peace and communal harmony, said a police official.”
‘Communally sensitive’ in secular-speak means an area where Islamists are even more prone to violence than normal. Usually, any area or town where Muslim population crosses 30% automatically acquires the ‘communally sensitive’ tag.
Earlier, it was reported on May 12 that the police stopped audiences who had come to watch the movie in Bhainsa. Likewise, West Bengal police was also seen performing the ‘important duty’ of forcibly evicting moviegoers from inside cinema halls, the day after Mamata’s diktat of banning The Kerala Story was to come into force. In Bhubaneswar, there were complaints that a multiplex had turned off the AC to dissuade audience; similar incidents were reported during screening of The Kashmir Files in other parts of the country.
Movies like OMG: Oh My God! & PK which were full-frontal attacks on Hindu Dharma, especially the practise of murti puja, are celebrated by our Republic’s establishment intelligentsia as ‘progressive entertainers’, movies like Pathaan which humanize a vicious enemy nation like Pakistan and it’s notorious spy agency ISI are also lauded for being ‘anti-hate’, but a movie which shows the real-life plight of ordinary Hindu girls trapped & brainwashed by a deadly Islamist grooming network is criticized for being ‘controversial’ and ‘divisive’.
Shouldn’t any sane society be looking to divide, contain and eliminate radical sections within its body politic? But then the secular Republic of India stopped being sane a long while ago. All pretense of being a ‘democracy’ has now been shredded – under cover of our State Religion of Secularism, the radical sections of minorities – Islamists, Evangelists and Khalistanis wield brute power.
