The Delhi High Court today paved the way for the screening of a documentary on the victims of violence in the Kashmir Valley without any cut, saying the film does not contain any objectionable material and deserved issuance of a ‘U’ certificate for public viewing.
However, a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath noted that so far as insertion of a disclaimer was concerned, Pankaj Butalia, producer-director of documentary “Textures of Loss”, has already agreed to do it.
The bench concurred with the conclusion of a single judge bench which had directed the Censor Board to issue a certificate for public screening without any cut.
“It may be true that the issue of violence in Kashmir is a sensitive topic. However, we do not find any objectionable material in the film in question,” the bench said. (AGENCIES)
