Why was there a need to make a film on this issue?
The murder of kanhaiya lal had raised several questions about the issues like freedom of expression , Blasphemy and religious extremism Where in the name of blasphemy People have started believing in taking law into their own hands and killing people.
For the past many times, incidents of such killings have been seen in the neighboring country of Pakistan, in which a person has been killed by the mob alleging that he has insulted a holy book or a religious figure.
Such incidents are now being seen in India as well, on which strict actions need to be taken, if these incidents are not controlled in time, then it can become a bigger problem in the future.
Such incidents are certainly not good for India’s democracy and freedom of expression.
Making a film on this issue will definitely work to spread awareness in the society.
