The Maharashtra Congress on Monday urged Prime Minister Uddhav Thackeray to ban the film “Why I Killed Gandhi”, which will be released on various OTT platforms on January 30, the anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination.

Similarly, the All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding a total ban on the film, which “wants to glorify the murderer of Gandhiji, Nathuram Godse, and its exhibition would shock people.”

In the film, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP Amol Kolhe plays Godse, which has sparked friction between ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi allies Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress in recent days.

Speaking to CM Thackeray, Nana Patole, president of the state congress, said that Mahatma Gandhi’s ideology of truth, peace and nonviolence is respected around the world and that his death anniversary is celebrated worldwide as the day that symbolizes his teachings.

“If the movie ‘Why I Killed Gandhi’ could be released on the day of Gandhiji’s murder, it would empower the fascist forces. Therefore, we kindly request that you order a ban on the film,” Patole said.

The AICWA sought a complete ban on the film’s release, as it is intended to glorify “Gode, a traitor and murderer of the Father of the Nation”.

When the film caused a huge controversy in state political circles last week, Kolhe said he acted in the film in 2017, and he also notified the NCP leadership before leaving the Sena to join the film. to connect.

While Congress strongly opposes the film, the Shiv Sena has taken a neutral stance, while the NCP believes it should be viewed creatively as freedom of expression. The opposition BJP has said there is nothing to worry about if Kolhe plays the role of Godse.
