The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya reacted to the clip and told the reporters that “if people threaten to burn Indore, we will burn their ideology”. 

The six men were nabbed after one of them threatened to "burn Indore" as he addressed a group of people and told them to assemble after Friday prayers of police failed to arrest the right-wing activists. 

The recent claims come after right-wing organizations staged protests against the film right before its release over some scenes and forced a few theatres in Indore and Bhopal to cancel morning shows.

The police arrested four persons when the members of the Muslim community alleged objectionable slogans were raised against Prophet Mohammad during a protest near a cinema hall in Indore.

Police even registered a case after the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) claimed a provocative slogan - ‘sar tan se juda’ (beheading) was raised during a protest by "jihadi elements" in the city, an official said.

"A video surfaced in which a man is heard saying 'Poore Indore Mein Aag Laga Denge' (we will burn Indore city) while addressing a group of people. Avesh Khan, a resident of Badwali Chowki locality, accused of delivering the controversial speech, was arrested along with Kaloo, Shadab, Irfan and two others. They were sent to jail on Sunday,”  police officer Sunil Shrivastava was quoted as saying by Latestly. ALSO READ | WHAT!
