In the 2020 Telugu movie Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, the goons will try to force an innocent businessman to sell 50% of his profitable company shares through threats and even attempted murder. A similar plot has been the crux of the story in many Tamil, Telugu and Hindi movies in the past but only in Malaysia, there is the rule to force private companies to sell their shares and lose a controlling stake in their own companies.

Before Article 15, I guess the last Hindi movie that I truly loved – from the storyline to characterisation is Lunch Box starring the late Irrfan Khan. Of course, there were other Hindi movies that I had watched in between and before that will make a place in my list of must-watch Hindi movies. Image source: IMDB

Why not improve on the existing laws and enforce it instead of bringing in another set of law that does not apply to all? Why reinvent the wheel? Cartoon source: The Net)
The issue of hudud have been in the news lately and there have been plenty of statements made in public and by various parties including politicians from both side of the fence, supporting for or opposing the implementation of hudud.
