We have already reported earlier that the Kuwait government has banned the much anticipated film 'Beast' starring Thalapathy Vijay a week before its worldwide release on April 13th. It has been learnt that the reason is for portraying Muslims as terrorirst. Now Mustafa, the leader of the Tamil Nadu Muslim League party has issued a statement that the film should be banned in Tamil Nadu as well.

The statement reads as follows "The film industry has been creating the impression that Muslims are extremists, as is often the case in Tamil films where Islamists are portrayed as extremists. We see social organizations expressing strong opposition to the inclusion of their caste identity and even the names of caste leaders in film characters. But it is a matter of great sorrow that the scenes in the films continue to be as if only the Islamists are engaged in a culture of bombing and gunfire and acting against the peace and sovereignty of the country.

No one can forget the work done by Islamic organizations during the 2015 Great Flood. Islamic organizations have buried the bodies of those who died in the Corona disaster, even when their relatives refused to touch. When it comes to disasters like this, no one can deny that the Islamic youth are still carrying out relief work in the field thinking risking their lives.

It has been reported that the Beast movie features Islamists as extremists when the reality is like this. Islamists currently observe fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. In this context, the problem will arise if Vijay's Beast movie, which portrays Islamists as extremists, is released. Therefore, on behalf of the Tamil Nadu Muslim League, I urge Home Secretary SK Prabhakar to ban the release of the film Beast,”
