London, Nov 2: Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi is all set to visit Britain by the end of Nov 2015. Ahead of his visit to the country, director-producer of the controversial movie, India's Daughter, urged people to protest against the PM.
The filmmaker Leslee Udwin asked her followers and others to gather outside the venue where Modi is scheduled to address the Indian diaspora in London.
Udwin wants Indian government to lift the ban on her movie which is based on infamous Delhi gangrape case. The filmmaker had taken interviews of the parents of the victim. The convicts too were interviewed for the movie.
Indian government banned the movie claiming that the movie may create a new controversy in the country as the case was very sensitive.
Speaking about the ban and her demand, Udwin was quoted as saying, "We need to work toward the lifting of the ban on the film in India and we urgently need your help. This one is a really urgent one, and time is short to achieve it."
"Indian Prime Minister Modi comes to London on a state visit around 12th November, and on 13th November he is addressing a massive crowd at Wembley Stadium."
"I would love to see hundreds (if not thousands) of protesters, holding placards calling for him to lift the shameful ban on the film, and lift the shame off India."
"We have very little time to mobilise, but I have every confidence that together we can get enough crowds to make a splash."
A 23-year-old girl, who was named Nirbhaya, was brutally raped by six men in a moving bus in Delhi. She was thrown out of the moving. Later she succumbed to her severe injuries in a hospital.
The gruesome incident shattered everyone, especially the youth of the country. Many held massive protests in Delhi and other places across India.
All six men were arrested. While one committed suicide inside Tihar jail in Delhi, other five were convicted by a fast track court.
However, one of the convicts, who was a juvenile at the time of the incident, was sent to a juvenile home and he would be released soon.
