Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced on Monday that the movie "Padmavati" will not be allowed to be released in the state as it distorted facts about "mata" Padmavati.
Those feeling hurt by distortion of facts had the right to protest, he said, adding that protests were a justified recourse in a democratic system.
"If historical facts are distorted, and if anything is shown or said in the movie against the respect of the country's mother Padmavatiji, then that movie can not be allowed to release in the land of Madhya Pradesh", Chouhan said, eliciting a rousing applause from the audience.
Keshav Prasad Maurya, Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, too, has jumped on the bandwagon, by announcing that he will not let Padmavati release in the state until controversial scenes are snipped.
He said that queen Padmavati was a "true reflection of the Indian woman".
Addressing members of the Rajput community at his residence in Bhopal, Chouhan said the film would not be allowed to be screened in MP if it contains scenes "breaching the honour" of the Rajput queen or portrays "distorted facts".
Padmavati was slated to release on December 1; however, the release has been postponed, as the film is yet to receive approval from Central Board of Film Certification. "Nobody will accept distortion of history that they are doing", the CM said.
