No show for Khap in Haryana

Khap, the movie on honour killings in Haryana directed by Ajai Sinha, starring Om Puri, Mohnish Bahl, Govind Namdev and Uvika Chaudhary was released across the country on Friday, except in Khap land - Haryana. The cinema owners in Haryana decided to play it safe by not screening the movie in the entire state as they did not want to provoke Khap Panchayats who were against its screening. Posters of the film were also removed from
cinema halls.

Khap highlights the role of the Khap Mahapanchayats in honour killings in Haryana. The film ran into trouble on Friday after many exhibitors in Haryana refused to screen the film fearing violence from Jat supporters. .

Many Jat leaders of the state had threatened to protest against the screening of the film, claiming it was anti-khap and showed the traditional panchayats in poor light. They had asked the public to boycott the film and issued veiled threats of violence if it was screened. .

Anand cinema hall in Sonipat did have one show but they too withdrew the movie's screening after being asked to do so by the district police.
