Director Mani Ratnam’s new venture Ponniyin Selvan  has come under fire for distortion and misrepresentation of Hindu identity. The much awaited movie’s teaser was released recently which revealed that the director has depicted Cholas who were staunch Shaivites without even a prominent Tripundra, the first and foremost identity of Shaivites.


Ponniyin Selvan, a historical fiction written by Kalki Krishnamurthy in Tamil, based on the Chola dynasty, especially the great king Raja Raja Chola I is a much appreciated work. Many have wanted and tried to make it into a film and either gave up or failed. Now Mani Ratnam has taken it upon himself to show it on the big screen and as feared by many, the teaser shows that he has distorted the Hindu identity and cultural aspects of the Chola dynasty and other historical characters of the time period.

In 1989-90, with Rajiv Gandhi as PM and Farooq Abdullah as CM, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs & Others FACED GENOCIDE - were slaughtered or forced to leave Kashmir overnight. "The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
