‘The Kerala Story’ Controversy: Sashi Tharoor and CM Stance
Several political figures expressed their disapproval of the film and called for its ban shortly after the trailer was released on Youtube. Shashi Tharoor, a leader of Congress, recently asserted, “It may be your Kerala story. It is not “our” Kerala story.”
Let me stress, I am not calling for a ban on the film. Freedom of expression does not cease to be valuable just because it can be misused. But Keralites have every right to say loud & clear that this is a misrepresentation of our reality. https://t.co/sEIG91mjSP
