Complaint filed against Salman Khan in Bihar court over 'Loveratri'
An advocate on Thursday filed a complaint in a Bihar court against Salman Khan and others associated with his next home production 'Loveratri', alleging that the title of the film hurts Hindu sentiments by deriding the festival of Navaratri.
The complaint filed by Sudhir Kumar Ojha will be heard by sub-divisional judicial magistrate Shailendra Kumar on September 12.
Here's more on it.
Complaint filed in Muzaffarpur court against Salman Khan
List of IPC sections, under which Ojha filed the complaint
Ojha has filed the complaint under IPC sections 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship), 298 (uttering words with deliberate intent to wound religious feelings), 153 (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 153B (assertions, imputations prejudicial to national integration) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).
The film would hurt Hindu sentiments, says Ojha
Ojha has alleged that the film, produced by Salman Khan, promotes vulgarity and denigrates Goddess Durga. He said the film's scheduled date of release, October 5, is close to Navaratri festival this year and it would hurt Hindu sentiments.
He said his impression about the yet-to-be-released movie is based on the promos and teasers being broadcast on YouTube and other such channels.
