Nasiruddin Yusuf, the then cabinet secretary told him, ‘There is logic in your statement, but it is not possible for us to give permission for this film. Because, this picture can question the image of the state.’ In other words, this bureaucrat thought that such a picture that would motivate people to resist militancy could damage the country’s image. How ridiculous!
Nasir Uddin Yusuf also writes that some Buddhists have argued that seeing this picture will refresh the memory of the Holi Artizan incident and cause militants to become active again. This argument is equally ridiculous. Because, in order to accept this, the country’s literature, drama, music – even all mass media have to be closed. For example, newspapers regularly publish news of terrorist activities, bank robberies, rigged elections, disappearances, murders, money laundering, land robbers’ violence. Seeing the news of these crimes every day can awaken the criminal instinct among people, on this logic then all the media should be closed! Based on the events of Holi Artisan in India Faraz The movie is releasing on February 4. FarazThe government should also ban the screening of any domestic and foreign films.
One of the byproducts of cultural media is human criminality. Human beings, even human civilization, are unthinkable without this tendency. If this criminality is encouraged by any means, only then can it be censored. Saturday afternoon What did it do? The New York Times, various film festivals, various audiences including Nasir Uddin Yusuf—no one thought of it. This picture has damaged the image of the country? This also did not seem to anyone. How did the cabinet secretary or the people who blocked the clearance of this film discover these things in this anti-militancy film?
Where did they find the definition of ‘image’?
