HJS objects to Bhag Milkha song

PTI, PANAJI | 29 July 2013 23:10 IST

A right-wing Hindu organisation on Monday demanded the removal of a song from the recently-released film 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', describing it as "denigratory".

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has objected to the song 'Havan Karenge' in the movie, saying that the term 'havan' is considered holy in Hinduism.

The memorandum submitted to Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar demands that the song be dropped from the film.

'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' has been made tax-free in Goa for three months. However, the organisation says, "The decision to make the film tax-free is like rubbing salt on the wounds of the majority community."

It further said, "Secondly, when the state is in need of funds due to the closure of mining activities and resorting to unrighteous means of earning revenue through the casinos, there is a loss of revenue from tax money through the promotion of the movie. This move is unexplainable."

"Promoting the movie with the denigratory song means indirect encouragement by the government to defame Hindu religion at the cost of exchequer," it added.

The Goan media which is hungry for stories gives undue importance and publicity to such insignificant groups claiming to be the protectors of hindus. This organization founded by Guru Pa ppu Athavale has no credibility as it is driven by the falsehood of 70 odd years old Atahvale who claims to be the avataar of Krishna to his followers.

HJS need to find some constructive things to do rather than indulge in creating controversies from such non-issues. Those who get offended should not listen to the song. Stupid people have lot of free time I suppose.
