BJP demands ban on Mangal Pandey

Press Trust of India

Posted: Aug 11, 2005 at 2213 hrs IST

The BJP on Thursday demanded an ‘immediate’ ban on forthcoming film Mangal Pandey--The Rising accusing the producers showing ‘falsehood’ and indulging in ‘character assassination’ of the freedom fighter.

“The film shows that Pandey was born in London, which is a lie,” state BJP spokesman S.S. Dung claimed on Thursday.

“The whole country knows that Mangal Pandey was born in Ballia,” he said.

Dung said the Aamir Khan-starrer shows Pandey visiting the house of a prostitute, which was nothing but character assasination.

Demanding an immediate ban on the film, he said stern action should be taken against the producer and director of the movie.
