New Delhi – Dharma Censor Board (DCB) has been set up to prevent the denigration of Hindu Deities and Dharma from taking place through films, social media and TV serials. Shankaracharya Jagadguru Swami Avimukteshwaranand Saraswati (Pictured on the left) of Dwarka and Jyotish Peetha set up DCB and will head this Board. DCB will keep an eye on the religious aspects shown in films, review them and then give approval.

- Shankaracharya Jagadguru Swami Avimukteshwaranand Saraswati said that a handful of people entertain crores all over the world through different media, but they mishandle sensitive issues related to Indian culture, traditions, Dharma and society. Therefore, on people’s demand, the Dharma Censor Board has been set up to keep a close watch on the scenes, dialogues, story, etc. of films, TV serials and web series, so that matters that spread hatred in society are prevented from being shown.
- Uttar Pradesh Film Development Council’s Vice President, Tarun Rathi, said that before releasing any film, Dharma Censor Board will check it from the religious perspective and will have the necessary rights to grant approval for the film’s release.
- If after watching the film, anything is found objectionable related to Dharma that can hurt the religious sentiments of people, the film producer will have to make the necessary changes. If a producer has to make suggested changes, he will have to spend crores of Rupees. So, any action in this regard will have a deterrent effect on people who insult Dharma.
Expressing gratitude will not suffice for the initiative taken by Shankaracharya Avimukteshwaranand Saraswati for preventing the denigration of and insults to Hindu Dharma ! All devout Hindus feel that now all Saints should come together and prepare to stop the insults to Hindu Dharma forever !
