Adipurush, A petition has been filed in the Punjab and Haryana High Court to seek an injunction on the screening of the controversial movie Adipurush in cinema halls and theaters. The petitioner argues that the film offends the religious sentiments of a significant portion of society. Additionally, the petition seeks to initiate proceedings to collect the revenue earned by the filmmakers through screenings in Punjab, Haryana, and UT Chandigarh. The collected funds would then be utilized for the further beautification of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya and donated to PGIMER Chandigarh for the welfare of underprivileged patients. The court has taken up the matter following the petition filed by Mahant Ravi Kant.
A recent petition filed in the Punjab and Haryana High Court has called for a ban on the screening of the movie Adipurush in cinema halls and theaters. The petitioner, Mahant Ravi Kant, hailing from Ragho Majra in Patiala district, Punjab, claims that the film deeply hurts the religious sentiments of a significant section of society.
According to the petitioner, he was informed by his followers about the content of the movie, and he personally viewed it afterward. To his dismay, he found that the deities were depicted in a poor state and that the film contained the use of foul language. Such depictions and language, the petitioner argues, are deeply offensive to the religious sentiments of the public.
The petition highlights that while there are various versions of the Ramayana worldwide, with the deities being worshipped in countries like Thailand and Nepal, India specifically recognizes two versions: one written by Tulsi Dass Ji and the other by Maharshi Valmiki. The petitioner states that over time, several movies and TV serials have been produced based on the Ramayana, but none have depicted the deities in such a derogatory manner, using foul language as portrayed in Adipurush.

The petitioner asserts that the filmmakers should not be allowed to escape the consequences of their actions by invoking the freedom of speech and expression. The plea aims to safeguard the religious sentiments of the public and ensure that such content does not find its way onto the screen.
In addition to halting the screening of Adipurush, the petition seeks to initiate proceedings to collect the revenue generated by the film’s screenings in Punjab, Haryana, and UT Chandigarh. The collected funds would then be utilized for two purposes. Firstly, the money would contribute to the further beautification of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, a significant religious site for devotees. Secondly, a portion of the funds would be donated to PGIMER Chandigarh, a prominent medical institute, to support the welfare of poor and needy patients.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court’s consideration of this petition serves as a platform to address the concerns raised by Mahant Ravi Kant and other individuals who feel aggrieved by the content of Adipurush. The court will have the opportunity to evaluate the merits of the petition and determine whether the film’s release should be halted in the interest of safeguarding religious sentiments and maintaining communal harmony.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court’s decision on this matter will have significant implications for the future of the movie’s screening and the broader issue of artistic freedom versus religious sentiments.
