MANGALORE: Members of the district unit of Sri Rama Sene pulled down posters of the Hindi film ‘Dabangg', starring Salman Khan, and staged a protest against the actor in front of Bharat Mall that houses the Big Cinemas multiplex here on Tuesday.
Speaking to The Hindu, the recently appointed district chief of the Sene, Kumar Malemar, alleged that Salman Khan had hurt the sentiments of the Hindus in the country by making statements that were “insulting the sacrifice of the commandos who lost their lives in the 26/11 Mumbai terror strike”.
City Police Commissioner Seemant Kumar Singh said that the Sene had sought permission only for a symbolic protest and that the police cover was provided to the theatre.
Responding to the threat issued by Mr. Malemar, he said, “It has not come to the notice of the police but we will investigate the matter.” He, however, said that movie-goers had no reason to worry.
