Kurukshetra: Screening of 'Khap' has been stopped by the activists of the Jat community who had objected to screening of the movie here in Glitz cinema.

Some posters of the film which were seen pasted on the hoardings and walls in the city have been removed.

A police jeep with about six cops was parked outside the cinema hall to meet any eventuality, although no incident took place so far.

Santosh Dahiya, president of the women cell of All India Jat Mahasabha and All India Jat Sangharsha Samiti, along with some activists had gone to the cinema complex to thwart screening of the film by pressuring the management to withhold the shows.

"We had gone to the cinema complex only to appeal to the perspective viewers not to watch the controversial film which could hurt the sentiments of the rural community, particularly of the Jats, and we were successful in persuing the cinema authorities also for withholding the screening of the film so as to avoid any social tension in the region," Dahiya said.
