Khadim Rizvi, while addressing the party workers and supporters at Faisal Chowk on the occasion of Kashmir Day, said “we will not let the film Zindagi Tamasha release and will do whatever it takes to make sure it does not see the light of day.” He further asked the government authorities, Zindagi Tamasha’s team, and those who are supporting the release of the film to ‘do whatever they can’ but the film will release over his dead body.
Earlier on January 28, the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) had set up a four-member committee that would review the film.
Then movie which by the looks of it’s trailer seems to be on a maulvi, has bee banned before it’s release. The Islamic lot has put pressure and the both the Singh and Punjab govt has said the movie won’t be released. Why is this? Why does the govt always bows down to these Islamic goons. Isn’t this the suppression of freedom of expression. A movie which no one has seen, which got clearance from the censor board, has been declared blasphemous because a bearded powerful man thinks so!
Now, now, watch your words here. “Islamic goons” you say. Listen, these guys ARE goons, no doubt at that. But don’t tag them like that. It’s defamatory for Islam. Zindagi Tamasha WILL release and it will be released over his dead body if he asks for it. These goons just take the appearance and defame Islam. Islam NEVER EVER PROMOTES VIOLENCE. So correct yourself there.
