The Supreme Court on Thursday suspended the screening of the film "Hamare Barrah" and said that they watched the teaser of the movie and found it to be "offensive."

"We have seen the movie trailer in the morning, and all the offensive dialogues continue in the trailer," the court said while pronouncing their order.

Highlighting that the teaser was full of "objectionable materials," the apex court took note of the allegations that the movie is derogatory to the Islamic faith, especially married Muslim women.

A vacation bench of Justices Vikram Nath and Sandeep Mehta was hearing a plea challenging the Bombay High Court's order granting the release of the film.

The bench asked the Bombay High Court to take an expeditious decision on the petition filed by Azhar Basha Tamboli.

Representing the petitioner, advocate Fauzia Shakil stated that the High Court lifted the stay on the movie's release through an "unreasoned order."

"The high court could not have directed the CBFC to constitute a committee because the CBFC was a party interested in the litigation," she was quoted as saying by news agency PTI in its report.

Earlier this week, Annu Kapoor's "Hamare Baarah" was banned in Karnataka also.
