In  its notification refusing certification for The Battle Of Banaras the FCAT  states, “After having viewed the film…we are of the opinion that the CBFC  was justified  in refusing to grant certification …for the reasons that the theme of the film  was full of hate/inflammatory speeches  given by all the political parties and it tries to divide people on caste and communal lines and derogatory remarks  have been made against individuals  the release of the film may cause not only communal  disharmony  but also disharmony  amongst the members of different castes and communities…the appeal is accordingly dismissed.”
