Sikhs Protest Against “Messenger of God” Film

Sikhs in Delhi launched protests against the release of the Film ‘Messenger of God’. The film was banned by the Censor board, but the I&B Ministry approved the film for release.

Riot police had been dispatched in Amritsar and other places in Punjab. However, the Punjab government has banned the film to maintain communal harmony.

9 censor board members have also resigned in protest of the film getting approval by the I&B Ministry as they say the perhaps the I&B could do a better job at it. The board cited corruption and lack of funds for the mass resignation.
