The Kerala Story was released on 5 May. On May 8, the West Bengal government had banned it.

The Supreme Court has stayed the decision to ban the film The Kerala Story in Bengal. The court asked the Bengal government to ensure the safety of those watching the film. The Supreme Court said that petitions have also been filed against the certification of the film by the Censor Board. We would also like to see this film before hearing them.

The court said, ‘Disclaimer should be put in this film on the allegations of 32 thousand women accepting Islam and the producer should do this work before 5 pm on May 20. If you use the law like this by giving importance to the intolerance of the public, then every film will be in the same condition. It is the duty of the state to maintain law and order.

The film was banned by the government in West Bengal while theater owners in Tamil Nadu banned it. The Calcutta and Madras High Courts refused to interfere in the matter. The Supreme Court will now hear the decision of both these High Courts on July 18 after the summer vacation.

The government had called the allegations of shadow ban false
The Tamil Nadu government had also denied the allegations of shadow banning of filmmakers. The government said that the film was released in 19 multiplexes and the film makers do not have any written proof that the film screening has been stopped by the government.

Muslim organizations had demonstrated in Tamil Nadu
On May 5, Muslim organizations protested against the Kerala story at about 20 places. This was followed by protests in Chennai on 6 May and again in Coimbatore the next day. A total of nine cases were registered against the protesters, five in Chennai and four in Coimbatore.

Why the demand to ban The Kerala Story?
The film ‘The Kerala Story’ is based on the conversion of girls from different communities to Islam and their induction into ISIS. At the same time, Muslim organizations, human rights activists and some political parties are calling this film defamatory of Islam and Kerala.

Congress leader and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor had tweeted about the film on 30 April. While sharing the poster of the film, he wrote, ‘This may be your Kerala story, this is not our Kerala story.’
