Controversial Film "The Kerala Story" Sparks Political Debate and Warning of Protests


Controversial Film "The Kerala Story" Sparks Political Debate and Warning of Protests

Sources report that intelligence agencies in Tamil Nadu have warned of potential protests in the state following the release of the controversial film "The Kerala Story" on May 5. The film portrays the indoctrination of young women into the Islamic State and their travels to Syria and Afghanistan.


The film's release has led to a political storm, with Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan criticizing the filmmakers for advancing the Sangh Parivar's agenda of portraying Kerala as a hub of religious extremism and spreading propaganda against the state. Shashi Tharoor, Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram, also accused the filmmakers of distorting the reality of the state and exaggerating the facts.


On the other hand, the BJP has supported the film, with state president K Surendran accusing the ruling CPI(M) of having a selective approach to freedom of expression. Directed by Sudipto Sen and produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, "The Kerala Story" features Adah Sharma, Yogita Bihani, Siddhi Idnani, and Sonia Balani.


The trailer of the film sparked outrage by claiming that 32,000 girls from Kerala went missing before joining the Islamic State. The CPI(M) and the Kerala Congress have criticized the film for falsely alleging that these women were converted, radicalized, and sent on terror missions worldwide.


Despite the controversy, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) gave "The Kerala Story" an 'A' rating, and ten scenes were removed by the censor board.
