AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi has demanded that the upcoming film about Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse be banned.
The Hyderabad MP asked the Union government if the film on Godse would be banned in the same way that the BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi was.
Owaisi stated that no one in India can be greater than Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. B R Ambedkar, and that this country will never allow a terrorist to be portrayed as a hero.
On Sunday night, the president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) addressed a public meeting in Hyderabad’s old city.
He demanded that the movie be banned and that it not be shown in any theatres.
Owaisi was apparently referring to the movie ‘Gandhi Godse: Ek Yudh’ of Rajkumar Santoshi, scheduled for release on January 26.
He asked why a film about Godse couldn’t be banned after a film about Bhindranwale was banned by the government in 2013.
“Why do you have so much love for Godse. How long will you continue to chant the name of Gandhi but love Godse in your heart?” he asked.
Owaisi, who called Godse the biggest terrorist of independent India, wanted to know Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s opinion on Gandhiji’s assassin.
In reference to the BBC documentary ban in India, he asked if the Prime Minister would also ban the movie on Godse.
The Hyderabad MP also requested that the RSS speak about Godse. He mentioned that Godse and Savarkar had a close relationship.
He said that the ruling party was attempting to portray the murderer of Gandhiji as a hero.
The AIMIM chief furthermore slammed the union government for its attempts to interfere in the judiciary.
He claimed that, despite the fact that the judiciary is independent under the Indian Constitution, the Modi government wants to appoint judges who share its ideology.
He stated that the government recommended a BJP Mahila Morcha leader in Tamil Nadu who had declared herself a ‘chowkidar’ on her Twitter account, for the post of judge.
