FCAT clears 'MSG', Censor Board chief quits in protest

New Delhi: Dera Saccha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's film 'Messenger Of God' has sparked yet another controversy. The film after failing to get Censor clearance amid protest from various groups has now reportedly got a green signal from Film Certification Apellate Tribunal (FCAT).

The Censor Board had decided to refer the decision related to clearance to film in question to the Film Certification Apellate Tribunal (FCAT). Officials said a review committee of the Board took the decision unanimously on Monday.

"It has been unanimously decided to refer the film to the tribunal FCAT," CBFC chairperson Leela Samson said.

However, reports now suggest that Censor Board chief Leela Samson has resigned from her post, citing corruption after 'MSG' received a go-ahead signal from the Apellate body. Samson said that it is a mockery of Central Board of Film Certification and that she hasinformed the (I&B) Secretary about the matter. She has reportedly alleged interference and coercion in the Censor Board work.

MSG' is a film based on the life of Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim, where he is seen performing miracles and curing people of diseases.
