NEW DELHI — Members of a Hindutva group, protesting at a theatre in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore city on Wednesday, raised provocative slogans against Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and Shah Rukh Khan’s movie ‘Pathaan.’

The right-wing chauvinists raised incriminating slogans and made derogatory remarks against the Prophet (pbuh).

One fails to understand and it defies the logic how the movie was connected to Islam and what prompted the Hindutva mob to raise slogans against Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

The news of the protest soon spread across the city upsetting many local Muslims who took to the streets opposing the right-wing protests.

“Every time, these people under the safety net provided by the state government make derogatory remarks on our Prophet (pbuh). And no action is taken against them. We want the police to register an FIR against these right-wing protestors. Till then we will do a sit-in peacefully,” a Muslim activist told a police officer on camera.

Reaction on Twitter

Twitter has been bursting with hashtags such as #PathaanReview, #SRK, #RaniSaOfBollywood #BLOCKBUSTER. Many videos have emerged showing a houseful theatre with a jubilant audience dancing to the tunes of a film song.

During the two-day national executive meeting of the party on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked BJP workers to refrain from making “unnecessary” comments about films.

Modi’s comments came as several BJP leaders criticised the movie over Deepika Padukone’s saffron costume in the song ‘Besharam Rang’.
