Chennai : MMK President M.H. Jawahirullah has urged Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K.Stalin to ban actor Joseph Vijay’s “The Beast” as it demeans the Muslim community as a whole.
Citing the ban on the movie in Kuwait and Qatar, Jawahirullah said the Muslim community braving the natural calamity and the Covid-19 pandemic had rendered yeoman service to the community, but “The Beast” demeans them and has the possibility of creating a law and order situation in the state.
According to him, movies like “Viswaroopam”, and “Thupakki” had demeaned the Muslim community, and after a lull in production of such movies, now “The Beast” has given life to such a movie genre.
The Tamil movie is produced by Sun Pictures, part of Sun TV Group, and directed by Nelson.
The MMK is an ally of the ruling DMK.— IANS
