Welcome to India, a land of wonders, where people can land in jail for Facebook posts but they can openly threaten people and call for a nation wide strike.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming movie ‘Padmavati’ has been under attack in the form vandalism and threats ever since its first trailer came out. Several community groups claim ‘Padmavati’ distorts the historical facts about the Rajput queen.
On top of calling for a “Bharat Bandh” on the release day of Padmavati, now Mahipal Singh Makrana of Rajput Karni Sena group has made a video in which he has threatened to chop off Deepika Padukone’s nose if she continues to defend the film.

“Rajputs never raise a hand on women but if need be, we will do to Deepika what Lakshman did to Shurpanakha,” says Mahipal Singh of Karni Sena.
While a lot of people are taking it to Twitter to outrage against Rajput Karni Sena and their open threats,
Why has the Karni Sena President not been arrested so far for threatening to disturb law and order?

Other people are, as usual, making jokes about it.
If Himesh Reshammiya meets Karni Sena he will never be able to sing 😂😂
