Anti PK protests reaches capital

NEW DELHI: VHP and Bajrang Dal activists Tuesday protested at various cinema halls in the capital and vandalized a theater screening Aamir Khan’s movie “PK”, saying it was against the religious sentiments of Hindus.

Demanding an immediate ban on the film, the activists of the right wing groups protested outside Delite theater in central Delhi’s Daryaganj and south Delhi’s PVR Priya.

Around 70 protesters of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Bajrang Dal gathered outside the Delite theater at 11.45 a.m. They smashed windows, tore up posters and banners and raised slogans against the film directed by Rajkumar Hirani.

The other group of activists staged a protest around 4 p.m. outside Priya.

The right wing groups demanded a ban on “PK” which has generated controversy for its portrayal of godmen and their misuse of religion for personal gain.

“The movie hurts the sentiments of Hindus, it should be banned immediately,” Hindu Sena national president Vishnu Gupta told IANS.
