Punjab Govt bans private, public screening of ‘MSG’

Punjab Government on Saturday decided to stop screening of the controversial movie ‘Messenger of God (MSG)’, featuring Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmit Ram Rahim Singh, “in view of reports of tensions surrounding its release in some other parts of the country”.

“The decision has been taken in the larger and crucial interest of preserving peace and social harmony in the state and safeguarding the age-old emotional bonds among people professing different faiths in the state,” according to an official release here this evening.

“It (the order to stop screening) comes into force with immediate effect and shall apply to all forms of (public and private) exhibition and viewing of the film in the state including in cinema houses,” it said.
