Karnataka government has banned the screening of the Hindi movie ‘Hamare Baarah’ for at least two weeks after some Muslim organisations raised concerns.


In an order, the government stalled the release of the film and its trailer in electronic media, social media, film theatres, private television channels or other media.

The order said several Muslim organisations had appealed to the government not to allow the screening of the movie which portrays Islam in an “instigative and derogatory manner”, and giving permission to such a film would lead to hatred between faiths and communities.

The groups also suggested that there is a deliberate attempt to target their religion, disturb societal peace, and hurt the sentiments of Muslims. The ban aims to prevent any potential religious discord and maintain communal harmony in the state.
