Sanjay Leela Bhansali's most controversial venture Padmaavat sees a pan-India release on January 25. The magnum opus has been embroiled in controversy since its inception. While various Hindu and Rajpur fringe outfits have raised objections, the Supreme Court of India gave a green signal to the makers and asked the government to not ban the film in any state.
However, protests escalated on Wednesday after the goons attacked a school bus of GD Goenka School in Gurugram. In a video that has surfaced, the protesters can be seen hurling stones at the bus near Sohna Road on Wednesday afternoon.
Parvesh Kumar, the bus driver, told News 18 that around 10-15 school kids as young as 4-5 years old were on the bus at the time of the attack. The attendants in the bus said that there were cops nearby but they failed to control the situation.
Twitterati came together and condemned the shameful act.
Just got a message from son’s school which is closed tomorrow as a precautionary measure because a bunch of goons unleashed violence in the name of hurt pride. Shame on you Karni Sena.

Video of school bus attacked today in Gurugram by anti-Padmavati cowards. This is the aukat of groups like the Karni Sena: attackers of little kids. May the men responsible for this never be able to walk again. pic.twitter.com/4ZFKvJboKc — Shiv Aroor (@ShivAroor) January 24, 2018
Attacking a school bus is not an agitation. It is terrorism. The people who did it are terrorists. Please refer to them as such.

School ke bacchon par attack kar rahe ho. Jauhar rehne do sharm se mar jao. — pnkj (@AskThePankazzzz) January 24, 2018
Dear Karni Sena members if you have any political ambitions then forget about it because you’ve already collected a lot of bad PR for yourself. How dare you attack innocent children?
And now pls look at your foolish self in the mirror and chant-
“Jaisi Karni waisi bharni.”

Jo bhi ho raha hai dukhad hai, galat hai, par ab mann ki jwala ko sadkon pe dhadhakne se koi rok nhi sakta, main bhi nhi: Lokendra Singh Kalvi, Rajput Karni Sena #Padmavaat pic.twitter.com/ZCzbH0gIMS — ANI (@ANI) January 24, 2018
According to reports, Karni Sena activists accidentally torched their own member's car during a protest against the release of the movie, making the Internet collectively go, "Jaisi karni waisi burny..."
And then Twitter did what it had to do. Crack jokes against the fringe group.

#Padmaavat is the biggest suspense movie ever. You never know until the end of the movie who will die - Khilji, Ratan Singh, Padmavati or the audience.— Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) January 25, 2018
Loved the climax in #Padmaavat when everyone was worried about Karni Sena waiting for them outside the multiplex.

Watching #Padmaavat in 3D "Wow! This war scene looks so realistic" "Oh Wait! No! The Karni Sena has entered the theatre" "Bhaago" — Atul Khatri (@one_by_two) January 25, 2018

*Man goes to a multiplex on 25th*
Karni Sena - Kounsi movie dekhne aaya hai?
Man [lying] - Tiger Zinda Hai
Karni Sena - Maaro Saale Ko
Man - Par kyun?
Karni Sena - Salman Khan ne hamaare Rajasthan ka hiran maara tha
Man - FML

Borrowed money from a Rajput and set caller tune of #Ghoomar song. Ab wo bichara call bhi nahi kar sakta #Padmavat — OFFICE OF PAPPU (@0FFICE0FPAPPU) January 20, 2018
Don't watch #Padmaavat in 3D. An arrow flying in your direction might be an actual arrow by Karni Sena.
