Ban movie Padmaavat? We've far worse villains in Malaysia

From MM Online:

PETALING JAYA, Jan 31 — The wait is still on. Bollywood movie enthusiasts will still need to continue hoping if they can catch the screening of Padmaavat after the Film Censorship Board of Malaysia (LPF) rejected the distributor’s appeal for a previous ban.

A report in The Star quoted Antenna Entertainment managing director Liza Anand who said the ban was upheld after LPF reviewed the film and maintained their stance.

Liza was quoted saying LPF stated the movie, depicting the story of Queen Padmavati, has elements that touch on Muslim sensitivities, in particular the villainous portrayal of Sultan Alauddin Khilji.

In the movie, Alauddin is apparently so taken by Padmavati’s beauty until he decides to wage war against her husband, another ruler, in order to win her over.

“I do not think having (Alauddin) as a bad person in a film should be an issue. The film does not reflect any situation in Malaysia, I feel the reason given is unjustified,” Liza was quoted by the daily.

If the movie character Sultan Alauddin Khilji is villainous, how does that affect the strength of Malaysian Muslims' faith?

they couldn't 'touch' her boss so they went after innocent her

Nik Raina’s nightmare finally over as Federal Court dismisses JAWI’s prosecution bid in Borders case

We have far worse Muslim villains in our country, people who oppressed us for 22 years and who still wants to, people who harassed innocent Nik Raina for their beef with Borders (which they couldn't touch), ...

... people who harassed women (Zouk nightclub - see BBC report), ...

... people who want to deliberately label innocent babies born out of wedlock as bastards in society (see I am thus a 'bin Abdullah' and 'bin Abdullah' necessary to stop 'bin Zina'?) and ...

... people who harass and persecute LGBT, people who get their knickers all twisted up over Nur Sadat's sexuality (see What is done with RM1 Billion per annum? and Nur Sajat asks JAKIM: Am I the country’s biggest problem?), etc.

  1. Unfortunaely, part of the mentality of this post is the usual narrative of
    Not holding the people currently in power accountable
    Blaming it all on someone who has not been in power for more than 10 years.

    Question - whose administration is LPF currently under ?

  2. The theme of the movie is to insult the hindu religion. It is hurting the feelings of the Rajput caste in India. The film also portrays Sultan Alauddin Khilji (a Muslim) as a hate-worthy character. The movie makers (perhaps hindu secularist?) are misusing the freedom of expression by playing historical fiction (friction) with people's emotions.

    1. Wakakakaka..?.. Hindu secularist?

      Macam Muslim secularist ke??

      Can such oxymoron exists ke?

      Small mind for small people - jumping up&down for a movie/book/what-have-u!

      If everything has to be sanitized, then yhere WILL be a lost in artistic/writer/music creativity!

      Is that the reason WHY the current crops of conservative ummat r marching backward to their doom?
