udta punjab, censor board Udta Punjab is scheduled to release across 8,000 screens countrywide on Friday.

The makers of Udta Punjab got a major relief as the Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the plea of an NGO to stay the release of the film. Human Rights Awareness Association, an NGO, had yesterday moved the apex court to stall the screening of the film which focuses on the widespread drug menace in the agrarian state.

A vacation bench of justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and L. Nageswara Rao, however, granted liberty to the NGO to approach the High Court with its prayer.

“We are not interfering in the matter. We are not going into the merit. Liberty granted to the petitioner to approach the Punjab and Haryana High Court which is seized of the matter,” the bench said.

      What you see here is again the garbage from saffron bridage. Whenever the law goes against them, they resort to abuses against someone somewhere. It is a like a dog with rabies which keeps biting anyone in its way. So you see them now hurling abuses at Congress, Sonia, Rahul. In other places they will start screaming terrorists, anti national, sickular, pseudo secular............ That's their ideny! Shame on them!

            Kya baat hai? The SC has not yet heard the Delhi gang-r-pists case from 2012, but these beggars are so quick to handle a major issue like a stupid film.
