Ajai Sinha film stopped from screening in Haryana, Punjab

MUMBAI: Ajai Sinha‘s film on honour killing Khap--A Story of Honour Killing was banned in theatres across Punjab and Haryana while the Khaps in Uttar Pradesh have called for a ban on the film with immediate effect.

In Haryana, the film could not get a proper release, having opened for limited screening in three cities while the rest of Haryana‘s exhibitors stayed away from the film for fear of retaliation from sections of Haryana‘s protestors. The current situation is that all the theatres in Punjab and Haryana have boycotted the film.

Meanwhile, following their brethren in Haryana and Punjab, heads of various Khap councils in Uttar Pradesh have threatened to start an agitation if Ajai Sinha‘s Khap--A Story of Honour Killing is not banned.

Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) and Baliyan khap leader Naresh Tikait alleges that the film is a ‘conspiracy to dishonour‘ the Khaps and follows it up by demanding that the film be banned. Such a film would be harmful to brother and sister relations, he observed.

Har Kishan Malic, the head of Gadwala khap, and the leader of Battisa khap Choudhry Suraj Mal have also opposed the film and threatened to launch an agitation. The film that deals with ‘honour‘ killings generated a controversy with members of the BKU that resulted in forcing a cinema hall to stop screening the film.

Khap-A story of honour killing revolves around two different worlds colliding each other over a love story which we take as a norm in our world.
