Taking into account sentiments of the tribal people, Jharkhand has banned the MSG 2 – The Messenger movie in the state.
The Jharkhand government has taken note of the MSG 2 movie, released on 18 September, and which has used some remarks that are unconstitutional. The remarks hurt the sentiment of the tribal people.
An official release said on Saturday, “Chief Minister Raghubar Das gathered information about the movie and directed the officials to ban the movie in the state.”
In Jharkhand, tribals constitute 27 percent of the population and Raghubar Das is the first non-tribal to become the chief minister of the state.
According to officials, the movie, which is a sequel to MSG: The Messenger and has been directed by Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, carries some ‘unsavoury’ remarks against tribals and those living in jungles.
