Freedom of speech and expression in India, suffered another body blow with the breaking out of a national row over the film ‘Padmavati’ this year. The film which has yet to be released in cinema halls, has been cleared officially by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), but its lead actor Ms. Deepika Padukone and director Mr. Sanjay Leela Bhansali have received multiple death and rape threats from various quarters. Various outfits have also threatened to vandalise theatre who dare to screen it.
Now CJP is inviting you to sign our petition to the NCW and NHRC to intervene in the matter and put an end to this culture of intimidation where open threats are issued to women citizens and the creative fraternity. To sign our petition scroll below.
