Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh starrer Kedarnath has hit the controversies once again. Days after the trailer of the film was released, it received backlash from priests of the temple town who demanded a blanket ban on the Abhishek Kapoor directorial. The teerth purohits of Uttarakhand’s Chardham have said that the movie hurts Hindu religious sentiments by as it promotes ‘love jihad’.

The chairman of the priests based in Kedarnath, Vinod Shukla said, “We will launch an agitation if the movie is not banned as we have been told that it hurts the Hindu religious sentiments by promoting ‘love jihad'(an alleged campaign under which Muslim men target the non-Muslim women for conversion to Islam).”

The chairman further added that the priests had also protested against the film when its “vulgar dance sequences” were being shot around Kedarnath shrine. Incidentally, locals have already started protesting against its release, Pinkvilla reports. 

Ajendra Ajay, a state BJP leader has also demanded a ban on the film. While tweeting his unhappiness on his social media, he said that protests have already begun in Rudraprayag and Kotdwar and tagged the chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification, Prasoon Joshi for the film to be banned.

Ajay said that “The movie appears to be an effort to promote love jihad. Couldn’t the director find a single Hindu name or character for the main lead? Also, kissing and romantic scenes in a holy place worshipped by crores of people are a disrespect to the religion.”

Kedarnath is Sara Ali Khan’s debut film and also features Sushant Singh Rajput and will be releasing on December 7, 2018.
