Bajrang Dal protests against ‘PK’ in Odisha

Bhubaneswar : The Bajrang Dal Tuesday protested at various cinema halls in this Odisha capital and demanded a ban on Aamir Khan’s movie “PK”, saying it was against religious sentiments of Hindus.

Activists vandalised a cinema hall for screening the movie that shows godmen misusing religion for personal gain. They also burnt posters and banners of the film.

“The film has dishonoured the Hindu religion and ridiculed gods and goddesses. The film was financed from Dubai and Pakistan. It’s a conspiracy to undermine the Hindu religion. It should be banned immediately,” Bhupesh Nayak, Bhubaneswar district coordinator of the Bajrang Dal, told reporters.

Following the vandalism, cinema halls filed police complaints against the people involved in the act.

“After receiving complaints, we have deployed security personnel at the cinema halls to maintain law and order,” Bhubaneswar Police Commissioner R.K. Sharma said.
