Supreme Court Halts Release Of Annu Kapoor's Hamare Baarah Over Alleged Derogatory Content Against Islam

The Supreme Court has delayed the release of Annu Kapoor's film Hamare Baarah, originally set to premiere on June 14, following accusations that the film contains content derogatory to the Islamic faith and married Muslim women.
A vacation bench composed of Justices Vikram Nath and Sandeep Mehta reviewed the claims presented by lawyer Fauzia Shakil, representing petitioner Azhar Basha Tamboli. The court instructed the Bombay High Court to make a swift decision regarding the petition.
Upon reviewing the case, the bench remarked, "We have seen the movie trailer in the morning and all the offensive dialogues continue in the trailer." This observation led to their decision to temporarily block the film's release.
The Supreme Court's order halts the screening of Hamare Baarah until the Bombay High Court resolves the petition. Shakil criticised the High Court for previously lifting the stay on the movie’s release without proper justification, labelling the order as "unreasoned."
Shakil further argued, "The high court could not have directed the CBFC to constitute a committee because the CBFC was a party, interested in the litigation." This implies that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) should not be responsible for forming a review committee due to its involvement in the dispute.
The Supreme Court acknowledged that all objections, including those related to the CBFC’s role, are open for consideration by the High Court. This decision underscores the importance of addressing potential conflicts of interest in such cases.
Adding to the controversy, Hamare Baarah is already banned in Karnataka, which has heightened the scrutiny surrounding its release.
