    VHP Plans
    • Ahmedabad
    • A quiet word from the Modi government ensured that My Name is Khan released to packed houses in Gujarat on Friday, despite early morning protests and sporadic attacks by the VHP and Bajrang Dal in Ahmedabad and Rajkot.


      In Navsari, it was the VHP in fact which stood guard to allow the screening, taking on fellow Parivar activists from the Gauraksha Samiti who had warned theatre owners against the release of the film. With police deployed in strength and the theatres assured security, fans queued up to watch the film.
