The Dewas unit of All India Advocates' Council on Wednesday staged a protest against Aamir Khan’s PK and asked the police to take the movie off cinema screens within three days.
Dewas district advocates' council secretary, advocate Anand Adhikari said derogatory remarks have been made against Hindu religion in the movie and this would not be tolerated. Asserting that the movie should not be screened in the town, they demanded registration of an FIR against producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, director Rajkumar Hirani and actor Aamir Khan under Section 153(A) (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion), 195(A) (defiling a place of worship) and 298 (use of derogatory language) at Kotwali police station here.
"In case the police fails to take relevant action in the matter within three days or takes the matter lightly, advocates will lodge a private complaint in the court against the trio," Adhikari said.
Kotwali police station in-charge Vijay Choudhary said that they got an application from advocates and will take relevant action in the matter.
