Funny logic

Producer of a film on Congress President Sonia Gandhi was asked by Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to obtain no-objection certificate from her before the film is allowed to release. Film maker sent a letter to her seeking her NOC but he got no reply. He then approached CBFC with a funny logic saying no-reply may be construed as a no-objection certificate. CBFC did not accept this funny logic and declined to allow the film to release.

The film maker then approached the Bombay High Court against the pre-condition of submitting NOC from Sonia Gandhi. His lawyer also submitted before the court that CBFC had no right to impose such a pre-condition. Then appeared before the court, Additional Solicitor General who told the court that CBFC was withdrawing the pre-condition.

I wonder why CBFC changed its position? Any views friends?

    Political strategy. Sonia Gandhi by not replying to the NOC from the producer has played safe. She can twist any which way, like any politican. If the movie is going to raise questions from the opposition, she will have a clear case, stating that she had not given her consent.

    Effectively the Congress wanted the film produced and released, and so probably would have given oral instructions to CBFC to withdraw the pre-condition.

    This way everyone is safe and can twist as the situation demands.

    We do not know what pressures (Read Powers) control the CBFC… as far as Ms.Gandhi is concerned she will keep quite and get the free publicity the film will give her and her party….will have to see the timing of the releas of the film also…..The CBFC has no control over the release timing …now we will see the Election Commisiion also come into the picture …..
