I watched The Kerala Story: what Sudipto Sen has pulled off is impressive

Unpolarised

How rampant is the conversion racket shown in The Kerala Story? Is it fact or propaganda? Is the government involved in this conspiracy? What are its implications?

One fine evening, I decided to give the film a watch, because what I had heard and what I read about the film were exact opposites, which kindled my curiosity. My cousin, who I think is usually rational, supported this film; that made me more curious.

In this episode, I dice through the entire block of available information to help you make a conscious choice about your stand with the film. This is not a film review. This is about objectively looking at the facts we have in front of us, such as:

  • Why should it be difficult to believe that 32,000 people vanished?
  • A case against the official religious conversion numbers
  • A case for the non-Muslim girls that get sent to Syria
  • Conversions and migration
  • The numbers superimposed on the population
  • The passport problem
  • The issue of conversion
  • National security from the educated point of view
  • Should the film be banned?
  • The ₹150 lesson
  • How to handle the conversion issue
