Gujarat High Court orders interim stay on release of movie ‘Maharaj’

The petitioners highlighted that the 1862 case, decided by English judges of the Supreme Court of Bombay, contained severely blasphemous remarks about Hinduism, Lord Krishna and devotional songs and hymns.

They argued that the movie’s release was being done secretively with no trailer or promotional events, to conceal its storyline.

The petitioners further contended that releasing the movie would cause irreparable harm to their religious sentiments and despite urgently appealing to the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting to block the film’s release, they received no response.
