Ramayana is an example for people:

The kind of dialogues that are there in the’s a big issue. Ramayana is an example for the people. It is venerated. People step out of their homes after reading the Ramacharitmanas,” the Lucknow bench said while hearing a petition against the film.

Is this a test of tolerance?

The court also asked the makers if the film is a test of tolerance for a particular region – said to be more tolerant. “Should we close our eyes just because it is said that people of a particular religion are said to be tolerant? Is this a test of tolerance?” the court observed.
