Minister of Culture Saji Cherian wants to boycott the Kerala story movie. In the Bengali movie Kerala Story, it is said that 32000 women of Kerala were recruited by ISIS. Saji Cherian also said that the Sangh Parivar conspiracy to communalize the Kerala society is behind. The entire Kerala society should boycott the movie. The possibility of legal action will also be explored. The Minister said that efforts are being made to make Kerala a land of riots where all religions live together.
Leader of Opposition VD Satheesan had also demanded that permission not be given to The Kerala Story. The film tells a falsehood that 32,000 women in Kerala converted and became members of the Islamic State. VD Satheesan had demanded that the Sangh Parivar’s agenda is to create sectarianism and division in the society by casting doubt on the minority groups and therefore, permission should not be granted in the state. Rahul Mangkoothill, PK Feroze, and others have also come out against the film. The trailer makes it clear what the film intends to say. What director Sudipto Sen has told the media about the film’s content is in front of the public. The leader of the opposition said that it is clear that the film is trying to insult and slander Kerala at the international level.
