Karni Sena has become a national embarrassment, to say the least.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s most controversial venture Padmaavat sees a pan-India release on January 25. The magnum opus has been embroiled in controversy since its inception. While various Hindu and Rajpur fringe outfits have raised objections, the Supreme Court of India gave a green signal to the makers and asked the government to not ban the film in any state.
However, protests escalated on Wednesday after the goons attacked a school bus of GD Goenka School in Gurugram. In a video that has surfaced, the protesters can be seen hurling stones at the bus near Sohna Road on Wednesday afternoon.
Parvesh Kumar, the bus driver, told News 18 that around 10-15 school kids as young as 4-5 years old were on the bus at the time of the attack. The attendants in the bus said that there were cops nearby but they failed to control the situation.
According to reports, Karni Sena activists accidentally torched their own member’s car during a protest against the release of the movie, making the Internet collectively go, “Jaisi karni waisi burny…”
And then Twitter did what it had to do. Crack jokes against the fringe group.
