There is a simple message for all — don’t watch a film if you don’t approve of its story line or content. Vandalising public property is a national waste and targeting school buses is a cowardice act of the top order. Film ‘Padmaavat’ is a hit even before its release and the makers after all the controversies would laugh their way to the bank. The electronic media too is to be blamed for giving undue publicity to controversial films for their own TRP’s as well to those hooligans who burn public property.
Government should be stringent on those indulging in violence so that it acts as a lesson for other people of their tribe. If media too stops coverage of such violence on their channels, believe me the incidence of violence would drop drastically as many only indulge in such scenes for publicity!
