I presume the the poster of this mail is irked by equating women's
groups' protest with the right-wing politics.

But in the post, is it the right-wing stance that compells to call the
film "rubbish", without watching it? One does not know why any group
should oppose lesbianism PER SE. Is it a RIGHT-WING women's group that
prostested against the film?

As far as "rubbish" goes, isn't any Karan Johar film "rubbish"?

Review of the competely regressive pronographic flick on "lesbianim"
As in this review, it gets a bit problematic when the press clubs two
sets of protests together - activists from the right wing and the
women's groups definitely have different reasons for which they
protest against this kind of rubbish!

 'Girlfriend' causes India storm **
A new film about lesbians in India is criticised by Hindu hardliners
