HC declines to stay 'Kurbaan'


A division bench of Chief Justice Swatanter Kumar and Justice A M Khanvilkar, however, directed Johar and actors Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor to file their responses to a petition which alleged two of its songs were “vulgar” and posted the next hearing for January 14, 2010.

The petitioner Mohammed Ali had sought stay on the release of the film and asked the court to direct the deletion of “two objectionable songs”. The bench, however, declined both pleas. Ali now plans to move the Supreme Court.

He said the two songs in the movie contained objectionable and misleading lyrics. “In one song (Shukran Allah, Walhamdo Lillah... ), the two stars are having physical relations and the song is played with them expressing gratitude to Allah. This is misleading,” Ali said. In the other song (Ali Maula), which is the name of the son-in-law of Prophet Mohammed, the terrorist invokes the name of and seeks Allah’s help to carry out terror acts. “This is a wrong interpretation on the tenets of Islam,” he said.
