"Use of name 'Tandav' offensive, sentiments of majority community hurt:" Allahabad High Court rejects anticipatory bail plea of Aparna Purohit

@Areebuddin14 reports.

#allahabadhighcourt #Tandav

Allahabad HC Justice Siddharth said

"that there was a deliberate and malicious intention on the part of Purohit to outrage religious feelings, which would attract the offence under Section 153-A of the IPC".

Submission of apology or withdrawal of these scenes after they were streamed would not absolve the accused persons of the offence committed by them, the Allahabad HC said.

Allahabad HC rejects the anticipatory bail plea of Aparna Purohit. Says western filmmakers have refrained from ridiculing Lord Jesus or the Prophet but hindi filmmakers have done this repeatedly and still doing this most unabashedly with the Hindu Gods and Goddesses.

Allahabad HC: This Court further takes notice of the fact that a number of movies have been produced which have used the name of Hindu Gods and Goddesses and shown them in a disrespectful manner (Ram Teri Ganga Maili, Satyam Shivam Sundram, P.K., Oh My God, etc.).
Allahabad HC: Not only this, efforts have been made to subvert the image of historical and mythological personalities (Padmavati). Names and icons of faith of majority community have been used to earn money (Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela).

Uday Shankar president of FICCI to @SreenivasanJain @ndtv talks about the #Tandav controversy and what followed. "It worries me a lot. It's a matter of concern. Anyone anywhere in this country can hold anyone to ransom. The only fundamental right today in this country is
the right to take offense and if you claim to be offended you have far greater attention. That is a source of worry. People don't want to just change the channel if they don't like something. They want capital punishment, you want to company to be shut down, you want people to
be arrested. We are in a democracy, the joy of the democracy is that we can disagree. The overall mindset in this country is that I can take matters into my hand, I can lodge an FIR, bring a bunch of people and start shouting

So I watched #Tandav and I'm completely confused by those claiming that the show insults a #Hindu deity. In fact, THAT scene with Lord #Shiva portrays him as a voice of the poor mazdoor (worker). It is a TRIBUTE! It is a COMPLIMENT! How how how can it be an insult? #TandavOnPrime
Sadly, that scene has now been censored out so the general public will not get to see it and make up their minds about it. #TandavOnPrime
Well-meaning folk who think #Tandav is being attacked to distract us from other issues: please don't make that mistake. Controlling culture is very much a part of the primary project. Stifling art to stifle free thought has been the way of fascists and despots throughout history.

@aparnapurohit @Mdzeeshanayyub
Senior Advocate Fali Nariman: apologies have been made. There are seven more FIRs have been filed..

Justice Bhushan: you want the FIRs to be quashed. But why can't you approach the High Courts
Senior Adv Nariman: Its in 6 states. We have removed the objectionable content and still there are cases being filed

Supreme Court: But why Article 32 petitions?

this is such an incredible thread on why a lot of entertainment journalism looks the way it does. If a system incentivises mediocrity with the complicity of stars and their makers, mediocrity is what you’ll get.
on a side note, the censorship-of-streaming debate is ironic given how much OTTs love inflicting the same when it comes to journalists asking Qs. And these are folks we imagined to be different than legacy Bollywood. Bottom line is simple: everyone wants to control the narrative.
A major actor was told not to “bring politics in” while promoting their recent new show. They promptly told the platform that they’ll not dodge a question if a Qs about politics came up 👏🏼

@PrimeVideoIN The scene that landed in controversy shows actor Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub in a stage play where he is dressed as #LordShiva. The sequence talks about how #lordrama has become more popular today.

Stopped watching #Tandav after first two episodes. The takeaways from the first two episodes are:

- Shiv ji is upset because Shri Ram is getting popular
- Government is suppressing farmers’ protest
- Cops are killing Muslims after getting upar se aadesh
- UAPA is horrible

- Azadi song (Kanhaiya Kumar game) is almost patriotic
- A son has killed his father who is the sitting PM because he wants to be the PM
- A party’s IT Cell works like a hashtag factory
- No journalist helps farmers and students except for a Barkha lookalike

No it’s okay if you wish to spread propaganda, but where is the subtlety? This is so bloody in your face, this can sway only the ones on your side. What happened to the classic leftist artistry? Have you forgotten the art of brainwashing? How would you get new supporters?

Reasons why #Tandav is a well staged Propaganda :
1. In the very first episode where Mohd.Zeeshan named as SHIVA plays the character of lord Shiv and very subtly mocks lord Ram & Shiv seeking for popularity over twitter trends then abusing and justifying “AAZADI” slogans is
Nothing but an attempt to brainwash the youth in a glamourised manner towards their agenda.
2. It looks very fascinating to see Shiva & the youth (especially from a particular community) stand up against capitalism, SEZs, for Farmer’s right (which is again misleading).
3. This series is a serious attempt to create a hypothetical reality by attempting to clear out images of separatists & create sympathy for people like Umar Khalid & the Tukde-Tukde gang (AISA/SFI) in JNU (named as VNU) in the minds of the youth that are neutral as of now.
