5:30 pm: “This is being done to consolidate the Rajput vote. Now, you must understand that the Rajput community is not one homogenized community across the country. The Rajputs of Rajasthan possess a different mind-set and cultural inclination as compared with the Rajputs in other parts of India. And even those Rajputs in different regions outside Rajasthan are diverse in their outlook. By raking up the Padmavati non-issue, the Karni Sena hopes to homogenize the Rajput country across the country, unite them over an utterly irrelevant crisis. Sadly their ploy seems to be working. If I am from a particular caste and you tell me my cultural heritage is threatened I will naturally react against the threat,” Shyamal Benegal said.

4:40 pm:  “I am sorry I can’t comment on Padmavati. I haven’t seen it, have you? No one has seen it. Yet there are hordes of people objecting to its content. Does that make any sense? I can’t understand how the protest has spread across the nation when hardly anyone has seen the film. How can the protest against a film become so rampant when no one has seen the film, no one knows the content. I am sorry; the protests make no sense, unless we judge them against the political current political climate in the country,” Shyamal Benegal said.

    As someone who has surveyed the trend settings of the Indian cinema for half a century or even more, I can, with affirmation, point out that there has been, through the ages, a tendency to show in low and macabre light the Indian way of life and what it really stands for on the world stage and show in flood light what Islam or Muslim life can offer to a Hindu population deprived of literacy and comforts of life. It goes without saying that Dawoodian as well as hawalla money trail has gone blatantly unnoticed or even sidelined at the expense of some financial support for anything or everything that portrays Islamic teachings going their way at the expense of the poor Indian way of life. How often have we not seen an azaan scene thrust in to depict the arrival of some savior who with Allah's help would face up to the situation and help bring justice or revenge for the atrocities or harm done to the villagers or whatever. The Samaritans are always of a different faith....
