Tri City Social Organizations’ Federation (TRISOFED), including the representatives of Democratic Forum, Panchkula, Peoples’ Union of Civil Rights, Sampooran Kranti Manch, Critique, Voices of Civil Society, New Trade Union Initiative, Students Federation of India, and All India Democratic Women Association met at Chandigarh where the members expressed their concern over the ways the screening of the movie ‘KHAP’ is being blocked in Haryana, Chandigarh and Western UP. Presumably, due to the open threat of the Khap Panchayats, the State Government has chosen to pre- empt its screening by way of discouraging cinema-owners to screen it. The unofficial ways in which a movie duly passed by Central Board of Film Certification, is being stopped to reach to its potential viewers, would only embolden retrogressive elements in the society. The scourge of the so- called Honour-Killings can only be taken head on if views on it, dissenting as well as moderate, are allowed to be fully expressed. The way the screening of the movie is being scuttled also brings into foreground the fundamental question of freedom of expression. The members expressed their unhappiness over the repeated attempts of various governments, state and central, in muffling the voice of artists, painters, and other activists pertaining to issues that are socially retrogressive. The participants in the meeting demanded that the screening of the movie KHAP should be facilitated and if required protection should be given to the viewers as well as the cinemas in case of violence.
