‘Shudra- The Rising’ is the first feature
film on the menace of caste discrimination. The maker
of the film has taken a great risk to expose the harsh
realities of hidden apartheid in India. He must be congratulated
for this venture. Initially this film was cleared from
the Censor Board but some of the organisations in India
objected to its screening. Now the Censor Board is playing
in the hands of these organisations. So its screening
has been postponed twice. We must support the film maker
and ask for its early release so that everybody is able
to see clear picture of our dark history. I would like
to request your readers to act as requested by the film
maker. Mr. Sanjiv Jaiswal and send EMS and also spread
this message to their contacts.
With kindest regards,
