Outrageous insult of Goddess Shri Mahakali in a documentary film !

  • Shri Kalimata shown smoking in a documentary film ‘Kali’
  • Hindus protest on social media and request PM and Home Minister to take action

The intention underlying the display of this image is not to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus, but to make them comprehend the denigration –  Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat

Mumbai – A poster has been released during a programme ‘Rhythms of Canada’ in which Indian filmmaker Leena Manimekalai has shown an actress, attired as Shri Mahakali Devi, smoking a cigarette. In the background, a rainbow flag, symbolising the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community, can also be seen. The denigration is being opposed on social media; the hashtag ‘#ArrestLeenaManimekalai’ trending on Twitter, with some of them demanding intervention by PM Modi and the Home Minister through action against the documentary.

Opinions expressed through the social media

1. It is a deliberate attempt to hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus. One cannot misuse the freedom of expression.

2. I request Leena Manimekalai to remove this poster as it is hurting the religious sentiments of millions of  Hindus.

3. I was shocked to see this poster. From M F Hussain to you, you all get pleasure in denigrating Hindus’ Deities, which is your aim. It is objectionable. Please remove this poster.

Editorial viewpoint

Pakistan has Blasphemy laws against criticism of Islam but no such law exists in India; therefore, people making mockery of Hindu Deities go scot-free. Hindus feel that the Central Government should also promptly pass a law with death sentence for such kind of crimes !
