The love story between a Muslim pithoo and a Hindu woman ruffled few feathers and the allegations of 'promoting love jihad' were leveled.
Uttarakhand minister Satyapal Maharaj claimed Kedarnath didn't follow the culture and is factually incorrect.
Therefore, to maintain law and order it was banned in Uttarakhand.
