Mus­lim or­gan­i­sa­tions in Ra­jasthan have ex­tended sup­port to the Ra­jput groups which are de­mand­ing a ban on ‘Pad­ma­vati’. Iqbal Sid­diqui, me­dia sec­re­tary of the Ra­jasthan chap­ter of Ja­maat-e-Is­lami Hind (JEIH), said: “Un­til the Ra­jput com­mu­nity, which is well versed with the historical nar­ra­tive of the fall of Chit­tor­garh in 1303 CE, clears the movie, it should not be re­leased.” He drew a par­al­lel say­ing the de­mand for a ban on the writ­ings of Sal­man Rushdie and Taslima Nas­reen was based on the same logic — ‘hurt­ing of sen­ti­ments’. have cen­sor board, they will take a de­ci­sion. San­jay (Leela Bhansali) makes very beau­ti­ful and ex­cel­lent films”.

Ac­tor Aditi Rao Hyadri also backed Bhansali by tweet­ing, “An In­dian and an artist we should be proud of... He cel­e­brates our sto­ries, our cul­ture our mu­sic. De­spite ev­ery trial by fire that we put him through... we love you #San­jayLee­laBhansali more power to you #WeSup­port­Pad­ma­vati @FilmPad­ma­vati”
