72 Hoorain: Director Gets Death Threats, CBFC Refuses Its Certification
The upcoming Indian film “72 Hoorain” is about a group of young Muslim men who are recruited by a terrorist organization. The organization promises them that if they carry out a suicide attack, they will be rewarded with 72 Hoorain (Virgin Angels) in heaven.
The men are brainwashed into believing this, and they carry out the attack. However, they soon realize that the promise of 72 Hoorain was a lie, and they are left to face the consequences of their actions.
The film has been surrounded by controversy and faced criticism from certain religious leaders and political figures even before its release.
Directed by National Award-winner, Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan, the movie aims to expose the dark face of Islamic terrorism from events like 9/11 to the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai.
Despite the good plot and campaign against terrorism, the film has received backlash, with some Muslim leaders and organizations demanding a ban on its release.
The director, Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan, has been subjected to threats and abusive messages on social media platforms.
