Sara Ali’s Debut Film Promotes Love Jihad, allege Kedarnath Priests

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Now-a-days, releasing movies without any controversy is quite a difficult task. Every one of us has witnessed one of the longest running controversies during the release of ‘Padmaavat’, and this time Sara Ali Khan’s debut film ‘Kedarnath’ is the target as the priests of the holy town in Uttarakhand have alleged that the film is promoting love jihad.

Love jihad refers to Muslim men trying to convert non-Muslim women into Islam by getting married to them.  As per the movie’s director Abhishek Kapoor, the movie is a love story set in the backdrop of the devastating Uttarakhand floods of 2013, featuring Sara as an upper-class Hindu pilgrim and Sushant as a Muslim ‘pithoo’ (porter).

Kedarnath priests are not in favor of the movie being released at all and demand that it be banned as it features inter-religious romance and hurts religious sentiments.

“We will launch an agitation if the movie is not banned,” Vinod Shukla, chairman, Kedar Sabha, an organisaiton of Kedarnath priests, told the media.

Ajendra Ajay, a state BJP leader, slammed the teaser for showing the lead pair doing intimate scenes in the foreground of a tragedy that killed thousands.

He also said the film’s poster, which “shows the hero, a Muslim, carrying the heroine, a Hindu”, in a palanquin to the Kedarnath temple “is factually incorrect”. “Because you will see no Muslim ferrying pilgrims on the trekking route to the Kedaranth shrine,” he told the media and said the film’s tagline ‘Love is Pilgrimage’ was “equally offensive”.

After the teaser’s release, protests were held at Rudraprayag’s district headquarters and Kotdwar last week, demanding that Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairperson Prasoon Joshi ban the film.

As for now, the movie Kedarnath is scheduled to release on December 7.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Women's rights activist Mary Roy

Academician and women’s rights activist Mary Roy passed away in Kerala’s Kottayam on Thursday. The activist was the mother of the renowned Booker Prize-winning author Arundhati Roy. She is survived by her two children, daughter Arundhati Roy and son Lalit Roy.

She was the founder and director of Pallikoodam School, which was formerly known as Corpus Christi High School, located in Kalathilpady, a suburb of Kottayam town in Kerala.

She is known for winning a Supreme Court lawsuit in 1986 against the gender-biased inheritance law, famously dubbed the ‘Mary Roy Case,” which was prevalent within the Syrian Christian community in Kerala. The judgement ensured equal rights for Syrian Christian women as with their male siblings in their ancestral property.

Personal Life

Mary Roy was born in 1933 to an entomologist P.V. Isaac. She did her schooling at Jesus and Mary Convent in Delhi and graduated from Queen’s Mary College in Chennai. Her grandfather John Kuriyan established the first school in the Kottayam district – Rao Bahadur John Kuriyan School.

While working as a secretary for a company in Calcutta, she met her husband Rajib Roy. After experiencing marital problems, she returned to her father’s home in Ooty with her two kids. She eventually engaged in court conflict with her elder brother George Isaac over the ownership of this property.

What was the court case about?

Travancore Succession Act of 1916 says that the women of Mary Roy’s Syrian Christian community could not inherit property. In 1960, she filed a case against her elder brother after her father’s demise to gain equal access to the inheritance left to them. The case was considered a landmark case for the reason it fought for equal property rights for Syrian Christian women. After eight years of a long struggle, she finally received the property.
