Banning the movie The Kerala Story will not serve any purpose as the film is not against any community but against terrorism, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said on Thursday.
Sarma watched the movie with his family members and cabinet colleagues at a multiplex in Guwahati.
“I do not know what is happening in West Bengal but banning the film will not serve any purpose,” Sarma told reporters.
“The film shows the conspiracy hatched against innocent girls, including those from the Muslim community. So, the decision to ban the film is, I think, wrong,” he said.
“They have banned the film as they are under the impression that it is against the Muslim community but that is not true. They should have first seen the film before banning it. Then, they would have realised that the movie has nothing to do with religion,” he said.
