In Kota district of Rajasthan, an order has been issued by the district collector to enforce section 144 from 6 am on Tuesday. The order, issued on Monday, said section 144 would be applicable in Kota from March 22 to April 21 to maintain law and order during the screening of ‘The Kashmir Files’. The film’s director Vivek Agnihotri has strongly protested against the ban.
Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, director of The Kashmir Files, posted on his social media account seeking the intervention of Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur and Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. Vivek Agnihotri wrote on his Twitter account, “Dear Anurag Thakur ji, what should we think about justice if the film made on ‘Right to Justice’ by the state is failed in a democracy?
Apart from this, Vivek Agnihotri tagged the Chief Minister and said, “Dear Ashok Gehlot, the only power of terrorists is that they create fear and we are scared.” Addressing the audience of ‘The Kashmir Files’, the director wrote,’ It is time for you to do justice.
Arguing for the implementation of Section 144 in Kota, the Acting District Collector said that in the coming days, communally sensitive festivals like Chetichand, Mahavir Jayanti, Good Friday, Jumatul Vida, Baisakhi are to come. It is very important to maintain law and order in view of screening.
