More protests against 'My Name is Khan'
Now Bajrang Dal threatens to disrupt screenings
The Orissa unit of the Bajrang Dal threatened yesterday (February 9) to disrupt the screening of Shah Rukh Khan's movie 'My Name Is Khan" across the state if the actor does not apologise for his alleged 'pro-Pakistan' statement.
"We will not allow the screening of the film in the state," Subash Chouhan, national co-convenor of the Bajrang Dal, told IANS.
The much-awaited film, which is slated for a global release this Friday, is already facing threat from the Shiv Sena in Mumbai. Yesterday, Sena activists attacked some theatres in the city where the film is to be screened.
"Shah Rukh has behaved like an agent of Pakistan by advocating the cause of Pakistani cricketers participating in the Indian Premier League," Chouhan said.
A senior state police official, however, said anybody attempting to disrupt the film's screening would be dealt with as per the law.
