A very crude censorship is being practised by the I and B ministry. This has never happened in the past. The I and B ministry which should be the institution that upholds the freedom of speech and expression has now become the slayer of the freedom of speech and expression for an hidden hand.

Overriding the decision of a 13-member jury, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting today unfortunately pulled out Malayalam movie ‘S Durga’ and Marathi film ‘Nude’ from the 48th edition of a film festival, to be held in Goa from November 20-28 that opened the doors for filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh resigned as head of the jury of International Film Festival of India’s (IFFI) Indian Panorama section subsequently.

There needs a condemnation over the ongoingrow of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie, Padmavati, and that allowing mobocracy to dictate statutory decisions especially relating to creativity is extremely unfortunate.

The period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Shahid Kapoor has been facing protests from various communal groups, including Shree Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering with historical facts.
