Mumbai: The Shri Rajput Karni Sena is disappointed with the verdict of Supreme Court on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ and said that it was sad to see the apex court did not respect the public sentiments.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday directed all the states to comply with its order and not to block the release of ‘Padmaavat’.
A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said, “People must understand that the Supreme Court has passed an order and it must be complied with.”
“Our order is to be complied with by one and all. A few hundred people come on the street and create a law and order situation demanding ban. That can’t be accepted,” Misra said.
After the apex court’s verdict, The Shri Rajput Karni Sena said that it was disheartened with court dismissing pleas to ban the release of ‘Padmaavat’.
As per reports, Karni Sena’s Chittorgarh chief claimed that more than 1,900 women have signed up for jauhar (ready to commit mass immolation).
“It is disheartening to know that the Supreme Court hasn’t respected the public sentiments,” said Lokendra Singh Kalvi, patron of the organisation.
“However, now we are standing the in people’s court and are confident that people will support us to observe junta curfew,” he said.
He also said that only three historians out of nine historians had been shown the film by Bhansali. He wanted the other six to be shown the movie.
On the other hand, administrative officials have chosen to remain silent on the issue.
‘Padmaavat’ will hit the big screens on Thursday, January 25,
