Provocation depends upon the mental attitude of the people : Delhi High Court


The Delhi High Court Friday refused to entertain a public interest litigation (PIL) against the release of a movie, ‘The Conversion’, saying “provocation depends upon the mental attitude of the people”. However, the court asked the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to take a decision on the representation made by the petitioner against the movie.

All India Lawyers Council prayed for withholding the release of the movie and also sought a direct deletion of its trailer from YouTube.

The petitioner argued that the movie has the potential of communal polarisation and its trailer shows biased and communal content. The trailer suggests that the movie portrays a particular community as cruel, said the petition.
