The Supreme Court of India will consider on Monday whether the ban imposed by the Bombay high court on telecast of the film "Black Friday" should be lifted or not.
The story of Anurag Kashyap’s "Black Friday" is supposed to be based on the 1993 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai which killed 257 persons and injured 713. Before the blasts there were the riots in Mumbai, bloody attack on Hindus by the Muslims, killing lot of Hindus in a Hindu India. The second phase began with burning the Hindus alive in Radhabai Chawl in Jogeshwari, the Hindus tried to take a revenge but the military was called. Ultimately Hindus suffered the most. This happened between December 1992 and January 1993. The muslims again attacked on 12th March 1993 killing 257 people, mostly hindus.
The film was granted censorship certificate on the condition that the makers would insert a disclaimer right at the beginning of the screening of the movie that it was based on a book and did not impute any innocence or guilt on any of the personalities depicted in the film. Before the designated TADA Court at Mumbai, the film producers had given an undertaking to remove the words "true story" from the title of the film.
But why should the court compel the film producers remove the words "true story" ? Is the book not based on "facts" ? Is it not a "true story" ? Do the Indians not know that 257 people, mostly Hindus were killed and that the "Bomb Blasts" were carried out on a Friday when most of the Muslims were offering namaz, reciting/repeating what is said in the "Manual of Terrorism", the Kuran ?
Advocated by Shahid Azmi, Mustaq Musa Taurani and 33 other accused in serial bomb blasts case had sought stay of the telecast saying that the movie would create a bias against them in the mind of public.
Will the terrorists like Taurani now decide the fate of releasing movies ? Most of the Bollywood films, which are nowadays filled with sex and violence, rarely produce a good film. And few good films based on facts are also challenged by people like Taurani and his terrorist gang, headed by Dawood Ibrahim who is hiding in Pakistan. Already we have Khan and sons being promoted in Bollywood with the help of Islamic terrorists like Dawood Ibrahim who blasterminded the serial bomb blasts in Mumbai on March 12 1993 with the active support of Pakistani ISI.
By the way, Black Friday is India’s only entry this year at the Locarno Film Festival and is based on a book by S. Hussain Zaidi, again a Muslim.
With Dawoods and Khans having a control on Bollywood, the day is not far when Bollywood will be renamed to Mollywood.
