VHP: PK makes fun of Hinduism in every possible way
The Times of India
December 31, 2014
Demanding a ban on Aamir Khan-starrer "PK", right-wing
group Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Tuesday termed the film
part of a larger scheme to discredit Hindu religion and
VHP spokesman Vinod Bansal told IANS that they have also
demanded an overhaul in the film censor board which
approved the movie, and a "change in its character" is
"The movie makes fun of Hinduism in every possible way.
For those who are saying it hits at other religions too,
all together the scenes of attack on Christianity and
Islam will last for two minutes. But for the rest of two
and half hours or more, they keep making fun of
Hinduism," said Bansal, on a day when protests were held
at cinema halls in Delhi screening the film.
"The movie is so insensitive, the character was an alien,
but the director was not," he said.
Bansal called it a part of a scheme to discredit Hindu
"We want an immediate ban on the movie, and the
government needs to change the character of the censor
board. Every one says that we should not have problem
when the censor board has cleared the movie, the question
is who is heading the board..." he said.
Bansal added that National Investigation Agency (NIA)
must probe the source of funding for the movie, after
Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy's claim
that the movie was funded by ISI.
Asked about the vandalism, the spokesman said: "Are the
theatres not guilty of screening the movie and being a
party to the malignant agenda."
He also claimed that there was no vandalism in Delhi
"We staged peaceful protest at Delite cinema, and another
protest at Priya cinema".
Asked to air his objections on the movie, Bansal said
there is a long list.
