Ban on Bharathiraja's Annakodi ?

Following the ban episode on Vishwaroopam, almost every odd movie that releases has now come under the threat of being banned. The latest movie that has suffered the fate is Bharathiraja's Annakodi.
A petition has been filed by Thevar Pasarai Iyakkam president AK Ragupathy stating that "The Film is a love story between Thevar girl and a Dalit boy, it may create communal clashes between groups."
The petitioner added that the content the film were against 5B of cinematographic Act 1952, but the Central Board of Film Certification have awarded U/A and have granted permission for release. Raghupathy demanded the movie be banned in the South Tamil Nadu.
However the Judge asked the petitioner if he had seen the movie to which he replied No. Following which the judge said the petitioner cannot presume that the movie will cause communal imbalance without even seeing the movie, Hence the case was postponed to Friday, the day of Annakodi release.
