Congress leader MM Hassan called for the ban of a movie titled ‘The Kerala Story’ on Tuesday, claiming that it would cause communal divisions in society. In a statement Hassan said that “The movie ‘The Kerala Story’ is produced as part of a Sangh Parivar propaganda.
“Its impression is to create communal divisions in society. This movie will destroy the secular image of Kerala in the world. So we call for a ban on ‘The Kerala Story’. The producer and the director are claiming that it is their creative freedom and justifying this. But it doesn’t mean that in that name they will spread lies and communalize society.”
The script of The Kerala Story is jointly written by Suryapal Singh, Sudipto Sen and Vipul Amrutlal Sha while it is directed by Sudipto Sen.
The plot of the movie revolves around a group of Kerala women who convert to Islam and join the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). As per several reports, the movie has sparked outrage for portraying itself as a true story and making false claims about thousands of Kerala women being converted to Islam and recruited into ISIS. Political parties in Kerala are also opposed to the film, claiming it promotes the Sangh Parivar’s agenda.
