The Punjab government has imposed a ban on the screening of Sadda Haq, a Punjabi film glorifying the Khalistan movement and its leaders, on the eve of its worldwide release scheduled for Friday.

The decision was taken late Thursday night after senior bureaucrats and police officers, led by chief secretary Rakesh Singh, saw the movie.

"This step has been taken to maintain communal harmony in the state," a spokesperson for the SAD-BJP government said.

Producer Kuljinder Sidhu — who also plays the film's lead, a hockey player-turned-militant — was not available for comment on Thursday.

In the past, he has repeatedly insisted that there is nothing wrong in projecting the viewpoint of a militant.
