    BJP leader announces Rs 10 cr for 'beheading' Deepika, Bhansali

    Haryana's Bharatiya Janata Party chief media coordinator Suraj Pal Amu on Sunday passed derogatory remarks against Padmavati filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, actress Deepika Padukone and actor Ranveer Singh.

    He also praised the Meerut youth for announcing Rs 5 crore bounty for beheading Deepika and Bhansali.


    "I want to congratulate the Meerut youth for announcing Rs 5 crore bounty for beheading Deepika, and Bhansali. We will reward the ones beheading them with Rs 10 crore, and also take care of their family's needs," he added.

    Amu also claimed he was ready to quit the BJP for his remarks, and urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to speak up against the release of movie Padmavati.

    The BJP leader further added, "The Rajputs in Gujarat will vote for the party in the upcoming assembly elections only if Padmavati is banned. The prime minister must exercise his powers under the Constitution to ban the movie."

    Amu threatened actor Ranveer Singh, who is playing Delhi Sultanate ruler Alauddin Khilji in the movie, for supporting Bhansali.

    "If you (Ranveer Singh) do not take back your words, we will break your legs," he said, adding slurs against the actor.

    Meanwhile, Akhand Rashtrawadi Party members in Lucknow staged a demonstration against the movie, and said they filed a public interest litigation in Delhi high court against the film.

    Meanwhile, the makers of the upcoming movie have voluntarily postponed its release date, in the face of absence of requisite clearances.

    A fringe group in Bareilly, meanwhile, also targeted Padukone, announcing a reward of Rs 1 crore for anyone 'burning her alive'.

    Members of the Akhil Bhartiya Kshatriya Mahasabha burnt over a hundred effigies of Padukone, who plays legendary Rajput queen Padmavati in the movie, and Bhansali at Damodar Swarup park in Bareilly and shouted slogans against them.

    They also took out a march to the collectorate office and submitted a memorandum to the district magistrate demanding a ban on the release of the movie.

    ABKM's youth wing leader Bhuvneshwar Singh said, "Deepika should know how it feels like to be burnt alive. The actress will never know the sacrifice of the queen. Any person burning her alive will be given Rs 1 crore. We demand that office-bearers of the organisation be shown the movie before it is released."

    Asked about Bhuvneshwar Singh's threatening remarks, Superintendent of Police Rohit Singh Sahjawan said a report had been sought in this regard.

    "We have sought a report from the policemen on duty. Thereafter, action will be taken," he said.

    The Uttar Pradesh government said on Sunday that it will not let Padmavati be released in the state unless its 'controversial portions' are removed.

    Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya said the legendary queen had sacrificed her life instead of surrendering before the Mughals and made a place for herself in the history.

    "Islamic invaders created a lot of mayhem in the country. The 'Rani' burnt herself alive in 'Jauhar' for her 'satitva' (honour) and dignity," he said.

    As an entertainment tax minister also, I can that we will not let the movie be released in Uttar Pradesh unless its controversial portions are removed, Maurya said.

    Until these people are defied these stunts will continue to work. They get a lot of PR for free and continue to remain relevant.

    A fringe group in Bareilly, meanwhile, also targeted Padukone, announcing a reward of Rs 1 crore for anyone 'burning her alive'.
    How brave, they want somebody else to do the dirty work. No guarantee of a pay out either. Just jail time at the expense of the perpetrator

    Best part is this doesn't even qualify as incitement. They aren't saying go burn her just that if it happens there is a reward

    Meanwhile, Akhand Rashtrawadi Party members in Lucknow staged a demonstration against the movie, and said they filed a public interest litigation in Delhi high court against the film.
    And what will be the outcome of this PIL i wonder. Sounds good when you say you have done it, one week later all is forgotten

    Great racket...

    Movie should get a boost at the box office too : D

    We see a lot of hate speeches against minorities, films, etc etc etc. My question is, why doesn't the government act? Why doesn't it make these idiots an example for other idiots to watch out for.

    because these hate speeches and actions amount to nothing more than brand advertising for these outfits and to fight with trolls means competing with people that are better than you at rolling in the mud ?

    Modi has made interventions from time to time when things went too far which is appropriate otherwise he'd be reacting to their agendas as well as dignifying them in the process

    These ad hoc outfits are proxies for party members with extreme views that are not compatible with the main unit. Hardliners always want to hog the limelight. They can't get any official playtime so strike out on their own and try their luck. Maybe they uncover an angle that could be useful.

    Let there be no doubt that the seculars and market are in charge regardless of who is in office because those attributes attract the most election funds

    Yes, agree with you completely.

    But, can law be invoked to punish these goons? In US they will be behind bars.

    Incitement is punishable, right?

    Central Government Act
    Section 505 in The Indian Penal Code


    Or the exception part comes into effect?

    If the quotes are accurate it is textbook incitement - encouraging people to commit acts of violence, on this occasion by promising financial reward. This sort of thing is how people get murdered. If the names of the people involved were 'Muhammed' this story would be doing the rounds on the internet as an example of how savage Islam is. The people involved should be jailed.

    Selective people are being targetted.

    Its not incitement, They haven't said go kill them. They've said there is a reward if they are killed. Very subtle twist there

    if its not explicit it doesn't count

    Encouraging is a pretty loose word here isn't it. You could throw anything into that

    Doesn't help the gameplan if they get busted right at the outset

    Still, high courts are known for acting on circumstantial evidence only to get it thrown out by higher courts. Maybe something can be done.

    Look at the people being threatened here. Deepika is a well known actress, shes got access to any lawyer, Ranveer only happens to be Raj Kapoors grandson. He's worth many times more. These people can if the lawful bring a lot of pressure. On the other hand we have an interested cadre trying to promote his party and defend the faith. It would be good for the movie if people believed these actors were being threatened. It might be good at the polls if this agitation could force a compromise.

    Both parties make out in the end

    Offering people money to kill is incitement....among other things. It should land you in jail. I'm assuming that won't happen here.
