Asserting that there is nothing objectionable in his movie 'MSG: Messenger of God', Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh on Saturday said there was not a "single word against any religion, caste or community" in the film.
"The film will also not promote any superstition or obscurantism. I have never been in favour of any superstition. The movie is based on the real incidents," the Dera chief said while interacting with mediapersons after inaugurating a free medical camp at his commune here.
"There are some stunts in the movie which are based on imagination, but nothing objectionable has been shown in the film. It is a family movie. All family members can sit together and enjoy the movie," he added.
On another query, the Dera chief said 'MSG' was based on the welfare works for the humanity.
Ram Rahim said it was beyond comprehension as to why the censor board is still not giving its clearance to the movie while the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal has given a green signal to it.
He said an announcement on the screening of the movie would be made in a couple of days.
Regarding the ban imposed by the Punjab government on the screening of 'MSG', he said, "We haven't had any interaction with the Punjab government regarding the screening of the movie, but I heard that the Punjab CM had said that if the censor board gives a green signal to the movie, they have no objection to it. But later, according to the media reports, he imposed a ban on the screening of the movie in Punjab on the basis of some report".
HAILS BETI BACHAO, BETI PADHAO DRIVE
Ram Rahim appreciated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' campaign launched by him in Panipat on Thursday.
He said the Dera Sacha Sauda would adopt acid attack victim girls. The sect would provide education and medical help to such victims and if they and their families would agree, the dera would also help them get married, he added.
