'The Kerala Story' movie release prompts high alert in Tamil Nadu

Some groups have called for protests, and Islamic groups have sought a ban on the film.

The government is not banning the film, but law enforcement agencies are on high alert.

The Supreme Court has refused to stall the film's release and directed the petitioners to approach the Kerala High Court.

Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind approached the Supreme Court, alleging that the film demeans the entire community and will endanger the lives and livelihood of Muslims.

The film claimed that 32,000 girls left Kerala for West Asia to join ISIS, which the petitioners say is false.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan accused the makers of the film of sowing the seeds of communalism.
