‘Saada Haq’ banned

Thursday, April, 04 2013 - 22:16

CHANDIGARH: The Punjab Government today imposed ban on the screening of movie ‘Saada Haq’ till further orders.

According to an official spokesman, this step has been taken to maintain communal harmony in the state.

The controversial Punjabi movie Sadda Haq, which was slated to be released on April 5 certainly leaves a bad taste as it ends up as more sectarian and less artistic. So much so one of the songs in the movie, Baghi sung by Jazzy B (

), places the Tenth Master Guru Gobind Singh Ji in the same league as Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale, Balbir Singh Rajoana and Jagtar Singh Hawara, while glorifying their rebellious nature in the same vein.

The movie, while dealing with the sensitive subject of militancy in Punjab which affected everyone, appears to have failed to respect the sensitivities and sensibilities of the common Punjabis. The movie threatens to create a feeling of “otherness” among a large section of Punjabis, whose sentiments it otherwise claims to address, and recreate and relive the horrid memories of the dark days of militancy in Punjab in a thoroughly biased, selective and partial manner.

The songs in the movie are not rebellious but highly provocative apparently aimed at reinforcing the perceived sense of persecution, grievance, denial and discrimination. While one song Baghi seeks to equate the Tenth Master Guru Gobind Singh Ji with Bhindrawale, Rajoana and Hawara, the other song Ik Onkar, seeks to challenge Delhi (symbolising India) saying, its designs were much understood.

While the song Ik Onkar begins with an invocation to the Lord, it refers to and regrets the growing cult and clout of the deras and their heads among the Sikhs despite Sikhism being against all these practices. Surprisingly it ends with a challenge to Delhi, in most unrelated way, saying, ‘Dilli-ye, Dilli-ye...pehchan-de teri ankh...ithey rakh, sadda haq...’

Similarly another song ‘Dabb de killi...’(pull the trigger) is no less provocative.

The movie had earlier been banned owing to the objections and protests from different sections of the people from across Punjab. However, the ban was lifted after the intervention of some senior political leaders from the state.

While banning the movie is certainly no solution, particularly in the times of internet, when the songs have already gone viral and thousands of people already having viewed these, the film makers should have respected the sensitivities of the different sections of people as the militancy in Punjab, the primary subject and theme of the movie, has affected all sections of the society and not a particular one alone.

Glorifying someone like Hawara and Rajoana and putting them in the same bracket with the Tenth Master Guru Gobind Singh Ji is not just highly insensitive and provocative, but even insensible as well, which seeks to distort the sacred history of the Gurus.

The makers of the movie appear to have solely been driven by the commercial interest by creating controversy so that it gets viewed and watched by maximum number of people without realising the dangerous impact and ramifications it can lead to.

The subject no matter how serious and sensitive it happens to be could always have been dealt with in a sober and sensible manner. It is always easy to provoke, as the movie tends and intends to do, than to sooth the hurt feelings. The sense of hurt during the militancy in Punjab was universal and not selective. The Sadda Haq has been prejudicially selective in addressing the hurt feelings making it look more like a sectarian than an artistic work.

I understand directors need to make recovery of their investments funds of making of this movie for future projects. But message is more important than messenger, put the whole movie/scenes/partial parts in hd on youtube 2 weeks after release date with eye catchy hash tags, let the social media spread the awareness on its own.

It's been banned in the one place where it was needed the most. The rest is just preaching to the converted. Jazzy B aside the movie has clearly rattled a few cages. The makers need to capitalise on this ban and make a huge deal of it --- IN PANJAB not overseas.

It will be only difficult for Punjab people to watch in Cinemas. Once the producers release the DVD, all can watch it there as well.

Badal govt bans ‘Sadda Haq’
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, April 4
The Punjab Government today imposed a ban on the screening of Punjabi film ‘Sadda Haq’ till further orders. The movie was scheduled for an all-India release tomorrow. An official spokesman said this step had been taken to maintain communal harmony in the state.

In Amritsar, heavy security was deployed outside Adarsh cinema hall following a protest by Shiv Sena activists who allegedly tore posters of the film and raised slogans.

Members of the Sikh Students Federation also reached there in strength. They warned that none would be allowed to disrupt the screening of the movie. Assistant Commissioner of Police Gurnam Singh said that the police had been deployed outside the cinema hall to prevent any untoward incident.

I saw Jazzy B song for the first time, hats off to you Jazzy B ...

Whatever anybody says about his personal life, I really salute to him. I don't believe other Punjabi singers(won't name anybody) have the guts.

No where in the song is Jazzy B comparing Hawara and Bhindranwale to Tenth Guru, he is just saying, our whole Panth is BAGHI, our Tenth GURU was Baghi, Hari Singh Nalwa, Hawara Baghi, we all BAGHI.

The publishing tone used by Hindutva media is trying to divert and dilute Sikh minds/psychology of Sikhs in Punjab saying something not correct in movie as per SIKH point of view, as song is comparing Hawara & Bhindranwale to tenth GURU, Mr. Sidhu is after his commercial interests.

Be watchful of Hindutva media reporting.

InterEsting, do we still own Punjab? I believe BaANDAR SENA HAS MORE CONTROL ON PUNJAB NOW ... THEY CAN THREAT LAW & ORDER ISSUE IN PUNJAB, AND GADDAR-E-QAUM RESPONDS QUICKLY.

IF THIS WAS A MOVIE MAKING FUN OF SIKHS, GADDAR-E-KAUM WOULD HAD DONE NOTHING.

Paji Jasdeep i think Singh135 means Santji Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale.

Aww that a shame they banned it. Punjab and India is where Jazzy B is mostly heard. But those that will want to see the movie will find other ways and to listen to him too. Just tryin to hide from the world the truth coz they think it may cause trouble.. But the world should know wat happened. There was somethin on Sikh channel earlier but missed it.

Looks like there must have been a lot of pressure from all sides to get this movie banned. They can show movies on the Naxal movement, gangsters of Bombay, Kashmiri separatists but they will not show a movie on Sikh militancy. I wonder why.

It's because they've read history.
