Kerala govt committed to protecting artists: Pinarayi
By The Hindu 28-Jul-2019
Referring to the incident in which filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan was asked by a BJP leader to migrate to the moon, the CM said the very incident highlighted the uncultured nature of fascist forces and such remarks would be dismissed with the merit it deserved. He was inaugurating the 49th Kerala State Film Awards at Nishagandhi Auditorium here on Saturday.
“Adoor’s personality is Kerala’s contribution to India and the world. To threaten him is a cowardly act. Such remarks will not yield any result,” said Vijayan. While stating that intolerance towards Adoor has to be considered as a continuation of the threats received by ace film personalities like Dilip Kumar, Shabana Azmi, Anand Patwardhan, Deepa Mehta, Kamal Haasan, and others, the Chief Minister alleged that fascist forces wanted to stamp out dissenting voices and those who questioned their acts.
