Intolerant attitudes towards creative expression, according to the Kerala High Court, are not appropriate in a civilised nation such as India. Judge Devan Ramachandran emphasised that as long as an artist's freedom does not infringe upon the rights of others, their rights, including those of filmmakers,  should be protected. The ruling was made in response to a plea filed by a man named Joji Varghese, who claimed that a scene in the Malayalam film 'Antony' in which a Bible is used to hide a gun was offensive to Christianity. As a result, before the film's release, he asked for permission to cut out the relevant sequence.
