The controversies around Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer 'Laal Singh Chaddha' just keep pilling up. Now, the film has yet again mired in trouble as a Delhi-based lawyer on Friday submitted a complaint to Delhi Police commissioner Sanjay Arora against Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, Paramount Pictures and several others.
In his complaint, he alleged that 'Laal Singh Chaddha' and its makers are "disrespecting the Indian Army and hurting Hindu Sentiments". ALSO READ | Laal Singh Chaddha Box Office Collection Day 1: Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan Starrer Earns 11.50 Cr With A Great Opening
Advocate Vineet Jindal in his complaint to Delhi Police alleged that there was objectionable content in the movie and sought registration of an FIR under sections153, 153A, 298 and 505 of the IPC against Khan, director Advait Chandan and Paramount Pictures.
"In the movie, the makers have depicted that a mentally challenged person was allowed to join Army to fight in the Kargil War. It is a well-known fact that the best army personnel were sent to fight the Kargil war and rigorously trained army personnel fought the war but the movie makers intentionally depicted the said situation to demoralise and defame the Indian army," Jindal said in the complaint, as quoted by saying in ETimes.
The complaint also objected to a scene which was claimed to be a part of the film where a Pakistpersonnel asked the character Laal Singh Chaddha - "I offer Namaz and pray, Laal, why don't you do the same?".
Chaddha (played by Khan) replied, "my mother said all this puja paath is malaria. It causes riots."
The advocate in his statement alleged that the depiction in the film not only instigates and provokes sentiments but also causes "enraged emotions among the Hindu religion followers", said the statement.
Furthermore, the complaint also stated that the Indian constitution provides every citizen with the freedom of speech and expression but the misuse of this right is inexplicable when it threatens the honour and harmony of the country and provokes its citizens based on community and religion and threatens the security of the nation then it is considered as a grave offence, reported ETimes.

The Delhi-based advocate also went on to claim that the statement by the accused, "Puja path is malaria, it causes riots", is quite aggravating and a defamatory statement aimed at the entire Hindu community.
"This statement shows his intent of waging war and activating enmity between different groups on the grounds of religion which is against the ideology of a secular democratic country like and also mischief against the Indian army which is a criminal offence as per the law of the land," said the complainant.
