ommunist Party of India leaders Binoy Viswam (MP & National Secretary)
and K. Narayana (National Secretary) met the Regional Director of the Central
Board of Film Certification today demanding to stop the release of the Telugu
movie Razakar. The movie Razakar, produced by a BJP leader, is an attempt to
twist facts and give communal colors to the history of Telangana. The movie is
an attempt to communally polarize the electorate before the Telangana assembly
elections. CPI leaders explained the situation to the Regional Director of Film
Certification Board and demanded that the movie be scrutinized properly and
should not be released.
CPI MP Binoy Viswam also wrote to Prasoon Joshi, Chairperson of the
Central Board of Film Certification to scrutinize and verify the historical
inaccuracies in the movie before issuing certification to prevent
communalization of the society by using cinema, as had happened before
through movies like The Kashmir Files and The Kerala Story.
