According to reports, Dabeerpura Police in Hyderabad have registered a complaint against the makers of Satyameva Jayate by state executive member Haneef Ali and city general secretary, Syed Ali Jaffry.According to news agency ANI, a ‘maatam’ (mourning) scene in the film has hurt the religious sentiments of a certain Muslim sect.We filed a complaint with the Station House Officer (SHO) that on June 28, the trailer of a film released, which was produced by T-Series. In the trailer, one shot shows the festival of Muharram and it depicts a scene of Maatam (self-flagellation). The actor is later shown committing a murder following Maatam. This has hurt our sentiments. There has been an attempt to directly and indirectly hurt the Shia community in many films. We also complained to the local Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), who assured us that they will transfer the complaint to the organisation’s head office in Mumbai.Syed Ali Jaffry, City General SecretaryThere have also been threats of not letting the film release in Hyderabad if the particular scene is not deleted from the film.Based on the complaint, an FIR has been registered against Emmy Entertainments under sections 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class, 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs), and 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc., and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony) of the Indian Penal Code.Satyameva Jayate revolves around a police officer walking a brutal path of justice to fight corruption.
