Like I've said before, this culture of threatening and banning needs to stop. Apparently, in this country, you have the right and freedom to express yourself but you can't hurt anyone's hypersensitive feelings while you are doing that. So in the end, since you can never do anything that will end up pleasing everybody on this planet, you will always hurt somebody or the other. Therefore, you have no right to express yourself.
Also, the people who get books, films and tv shows banned have the right to have their feelings hurt, but our feelings don't get hurt at all when something we like is taken away from us.
It is a simple thing- if you don't like something- protest in constructive ways- come up with a new show/book/film depicting your point of view.
The people who are resorting to such tactics are not really doing great favour to Rajput honour.
Also, what exactly do they want? For all Rajputs to be portrayed as saints? They've shown Suryabhan, Uday Singh, Pratap Singh as brave, honourable men right? No race is all bad or all good. If you read Rajput history, there was plenty of villains and in-fighting within the Rajput clans. There was this prince in Chittor who was so bad that people afterwards would call him Ghatirao- never uttering his actual name. Think about PRC. Prithviraj and Samar Singh were rajputs, so was Jaimal and Jaichand and Bhimdev. I didn't see any Rajputs protesting then. Just because you have Mughals now some people with too much time in their hands feel that they must immediately protest without even knowing what the show is about. Shame on you people.
This show is about two different cultures trying to understand and come to terms with each other. That some people might have a problem with that shows how intolerant we have become as a nation. Happy Independence Day indeed!
