Karni Sena, A Religious Group-based in Rajasthan, has been protesting against the historical flick ‘Padmavati’ since it’s launch. It was the members of this organization who manhandled film’s director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Vandalised the set and destroyed the art work of an Artiste. The latest threats issued by the outfit to the people associated with the crazy project are scary to say the least.
A Leader of Karni Sena said, ‘Rajputs would never raise their hand on Women. But, We won’t hesitate to do what Lakshman did to Shurpanakha for Deepika if needed’.
Another Member of the organization declared that they are gonna call for a Bharat Bandh on December 1st (release date) for alleged distortion of facts in ‘Padmavati’. ‘Our Ancestors wrote history with blood. We won’t allow anyone bring disgrace to it,’ he pledged.
Union Minister Uma Bharti condemned the threats issued to Deepika Padukone. ‘If we are talking about the respect of #Padmavati, then it is our moral obligation that we respect every woman. Disrespecting an actor is uncalled for and immoral,’ she wrote.
Karni Sena alleges ‘Padmavati’ is about a romantic relationship between Queen Padmini and Emperor Alauddin Khilji, which is totally untrue according to them.
