Protest likely against Pak film at MAMI film festival
A city-based social organisation is irked with MAMI Mumbai Film Festival organisers for selecting a Pakistani film to be showcased at the upcoming event, and plans to protest the same for which it has sought police permission.
The outfit, Sangharsh, has accused the organisers of playing with the nationalist sentiments of people of India, at a time of tension with Pakistan after the Uri terror attack. “The organisers of this event are more likely to flare the outrage among people by screening this Pakistani film in their film festival. This will just not be acceptable as it will give rise to more tension and outrage among the people,” read the letter written by the organisation’s president.
