A case has been registered against upcoming Bollywood movie 'Satyameva Jayate' by the Shia community in Hyderabad for allegedly hurting religious sentiments.

As per the complainant, a 'Maatam' (mourning) scene in the film has hurt religious sentiments of a Muslim sect.

"We have submitted the complaint against all those concerned in making Satymeva Jayate and hurting religious sentiments. We have requested that the filmmakers should immediately remove the Maatam (Mourning) clipping from the movie and then release it. It is clearly hurting the sentiments of Shia Muslims," said Hyder.
