One day prior to the release of the epic film "Padmaavat", 27 women members of Rajput Karni Sena submitted letters to Ratlam district administration on January 24, urging President Ram Nath Kovind to "either stop its screening or permit them to end their lives".
Rajput Karni Sena's Ratlam district women's wing vice president Mangla Deora said in a statement: "Twenty-seven letters addressed to the president were submitted to the Additional District Magistrate (ADM)."
Deora added: "We demanded that the president should either grant us permission to embrace death, as we are not able to protect the honour of Rani Padmavati, or stop release of the movie."
