Battle for Benares film on Modi-Kejriwal contest denied release
The Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) refused to release a documentary film on Narendra Modi - Arvind Kejriwal contest in 2014 general polls, according to a Times of India report.
The tribunal, which hears appeals from filmmakers, against Censor board decision, said the film’s content can disturb communal and caste harmony.
The film Dance for Democracy – Battle for Benares, directed by Kamal Swaroop was denied a release last year, following which it was challenged in FCAT.
The tribunal on April 4 said that the documentary was full of "hate and inflammatory speeches given by all the leaders of the political parties'' and "tries to divide people on caste and communal lines".
