The Allahabad High Court today asked the PM Narendra Modi-led Centre to file its response in a week on a petition seeking ban on Aamir Khan starrer and Raj Kumar Hirani directed film ‘PK’.

The Lucknow bench comprising justices Imtiyaz Murtaza and Rituraj Awasthi gave the direction on a petition filed against Aamir Khan’s ‘PK’ by an outfit, Hindu Front For Justice.

The petitioners also sought a direction to quash U/ A certificate granted to the film by Censor Board.

Petitioners counsel HS Jain alleged that there are derogatory remarks against Hindu Gods, Hindu beliefs, faith and worship in the movie.

Follow conversation on Aamir Khan’s ‘PK’ on Twitter:

“The Hindu way of worship has also been criticised in a most unwarranted manner,” he alleged in the petition.

The central government counsel sought time to seek instructions from the government on the matter after which the court granted one week and directed to list this matter thereafter.

The portrayal of Hindu sentiments in the Hirani – directed film has faced the ire of right-wing organisations which say the movie disrespects Hindu religion.

However, the CM Akhilesh Yadav-led UP government has decided to exempt it from entertainment tax.

        Narendra Modi should support ban on PK. His some choices in last year were pretty bad like Shashi Tharoor, Uma Bharati for Ganga Manthan etc.

            After all we are living in a hindustan & all should respect the time established customs. It is open-ness of the hinduism that so many other cultures have been flourished here despite attacks by the humaun/babar/gaznavi, sikander & the britishers unhumanly. Hope an amicable solution created by the film & further agravated by the Hindu outfits. Such things should end for the sake of national development & further taunts to any religions should be banned. *** Jai Hind ***
