Kerusuhan Merebak di India Jelang Penayangan Film Kontroversial
Thursday, 25 January 2018 11:25 WIB | SECURITIES |

Kerusuhan merebak di berbagai Kota India, sehari menjelang penayangan perdana film kontroversial yang menceritakan legenda seorang Ratu Hindu. Para pengunjuk rasa yang marah membakar mobil dan merusak gedung-gedung bioskop.

Massa membakar bus di sebuah daerah pinggiran Delhi dan di Uttar Pradesh, para pengunjuk rasa berjalan di rel-rel kereta, hingga menghalangi perjalanan kereta, untuk memprotes penayangan film œPadmaavat. Di berbagai kota lainnya, bioskop dan pusat belanja dirusak, termasuk di Jammu, di mana sebuah loket karcis dibakar. Film œPadmavaat menceritakan kisah seorang ratu Hindu dari abad ke 14.

Penganut Hindu garis keras sudah memrotes film itu selama berbulan-bulan. Mereka menuduh sutradara Sanjay Leela Bhansali memutarbalikkan sejarah karena menggambarkan pemimpin Muslim sebagai kekasih Ratu Hindu Padmavati. Bhansali menampik tuduhan itu, yang menurut banyak ahli sejarah tidak berdasar, karena sedikit bukti dan fakta bahwa Padmavati pernah ada. Awal tahun ini, kelompok itu merusak lokasi pembuatan film dan menyerang sutradaranya.

Judul film itu diubah sebelumnya dari Padmavati menjadi Padmaavat, untuk menampung kritikan bahwa film itu akan merusak citra Rajputs, sebuah kasta kesatria di India utara. Di wilaya itu, Padmavati adalah lambang kebanggaan dan kehormatan.
