[India], Feb 24 (ANI): 'There's no reason to mute it," said the director of the film 'Chirodiner Ek Onnyo Premer Galpo', who has been asked by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to mute the word 'Musalman'.

"I don't know why it's being done. When I asked them, I was told 'we aren't answerable to you'. I'll go to the revising committee," filmmaker R Chowdhury told ANI.

According to reports, the CBFC directive says the word has to be "muted in the duration mentioned" as it violates the guideline on "visuals or words contemptuous of racial, religious or other groups." (ANI)
