Actress Adah Sharma has shed light on the recent controversies surrounding her film, The Kerala Story. In a statement, she clarified that the movie deals with the issue of religion being manipulated for terrorist activities, rather than making a commentary on religion itself.
Muslim groups have been expressing their disapproval of The Kerala Story for its depiction of certain events, such as Adah Sharma’s character burning a hijab and Siddhi Idnani’s character spitting on her non-Muslim father in order to prove her conversion to Islam.
Adah defended the movie saying, “The film tells you about people misusing Islam for terrorism to join ISIS (militant groups) camps. So, whoever thinks that film is about Islam is wrong. The Kerala Story is not about religion but about terrorism, which doesn’t have a religion. I’m very confident in my religion, so I would never bring someone else’s religion down. We all live in a country that shelters all religions, and all of them should be very well respected.”
The actress further explained the intentions of the terrorist to get girls to ISIS camps and facilitate human trafficking, “Their end goal was that. And when they use all ways and means to achieve that goal, I don’t think it has anything to do with religion. They are trying to manipulate people’s minds. I don’t see any religions telling them to manipulate the minds of people.”
The 1920 actress concluded by saying, “Those who are saying it is about hatred, yes, I want to spread a lot of hatred against terrorism. And I hope we can all as a society get together. It should be humanity against terrorism”.
