AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi Criticizes Telangana Police for Arrests During ‘Ram ke Naam’ Documentary Screening

AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi has expressed strong criticism against the Telangana Police for the recent arrest of three individuals during the screening of the documentary ‘Ram ke Naam.’ The Hyderabad MP questioned the Rachakonda Police Commissioner about the abrupt halt to the screening and the subsequent arrests, demanding an explanation for the controversial police intervention.

In a scathing remark, Owaisi questioned the perceived criminality of screening an award-winning documentary, stating, “How is screening an award-winning documentary a crime? If it is, then the Government of India & Filmfare should also be jailed for awarding the movie. Please let us know if we need a pre-screening certificate from the police before watching a movie.”

Owaisi’s comments come in the wake of the police action that disrupted the screening of ‘Ram ke Naam’ at a restaurant in Sainikpuri. The police not only halted the screening but also registered a case against the organizers based on a complaint filed by one Ruthvik.

The documentary, directed by Anand Patwardhan, delves into the events surrounding the demolition of the Babri mosque at Ayodhya on December 6, 1992. The film has garnered critical acclaim for its insightful exploration of the socio-political implications of the controversial incident.

According to reports, the case was registered after Ruthvik alleged that the screening and ensuing discussion by attendees hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus. Ruthvik, who was among those invited to the screening, filed the complaint against the organizers, identified as the ‘Hyderabad Cinephiles’ group.

The police swiftly intervened, halting the screening and subsequently registering a case at Neredmet Police Station. The charges include sections 290 (public nuisance) and 295A (outraging religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), read with section 34.

Authorities argue that the screening was organized without the necessary permission, prompting them to initiate an investigation into the matter. As the controversy surrounding the incident grows, it raises questions about the balance between freedom of expression and the potential infringement on religious sentiments in the context of public events. The developments in this case will likely be closely monitored by both free speech advocates and those advocating for the protection of religious sensitivities.
