Attacks on the screening of Gadar


The attacks on cinema halls in Bhopal, Lucknow and Delhi screening the film Gadar are highly disturbing. The tendency to resort to physical violence whenever there is a difference of opinion/perception is not a healthy one. Fundamentalist groups of different hues are


increasingly resorting to such tactics, seriously threatening the freedom of artistic expression, on the one hand, and the rule of law, on the other.

We appeal to all democratically minded citizens to oppose such a tendency wherever it manifests.

We condemn the hooliganism being indulged in by the Ali Sena and others.
