The petitioners, Jamiat Ulama-e-Maharashtra, have taken objection to the depiction of 'Madrassas as a source of terrorism' in the film.

According to the petition the scenes in the film show that Aalims (teachers) in the Madrassas are brainwashing students and preparing them for terrorist activities.

The petitioners have taken strong objection to this blatant, fictitious and wrongful depiction of the Madrassa.

Advocates Afroz Ahmed Siddiqui, Advocate Mateen Shaikh and Advocate Ansar Tamboli have filed the petition before the High Court on behalf of the Jamiat. and urged that "A Madrassa is a place where education is imparted to students and it also houses orphans. It is not a centre of any such anti-national activity.

" There are no incidents across the state where any terrorist or anti-national has been associated with a Madrassa. There are thousands of Madrassas across the state and the exhibition of such wrong facts on the big screen will create communal disharmony and general disturbance in the public."

The council appearing for film producer said that objectionable dialogue has been replaced by proper word hence, there is no material at present to call stay on movie .

The Bombay High Court also said that it will again discuss the matter on February 13 and see if the film released without objectionable contents hurt the religious sentiments of the petitioner.

The film, titled as 'Jihad Against Terrorism' invited the ire of the Muslims leaders who said the film is anti-Muslim and is unnecessarily linking Muslims with terrorism.
