A name from the film Thank God has become one of the films that make lewd comments about Hindu gods and goddesses. Hindutva organizations have raised objections to some scenes of the film. The All India Kayastha Mahasabha objected to the film’s depiction of Lord Chitragupta and demanded a ban on the film. In the recently released trailer of Thank God, Ajay Devgn can be seen playing the role of Chitragupta, while some models in western wear are seen standing around him.
The Kayastha community protested outside Minister Biswas Sarang’s house in Bhopal’s bungalow number 74 area over the issue. The memorandum given by the Kayastha Samaj said that if the film is not banned before October 25, the movement may turn more violent. In this regard, the people of the organization have demanded to the state government cabinet minister Biswas Sarang and Union minister Anurag Thakur that the objectionable scenes should be removed from the film or the film should be banned.
The Kayastha community worships Lord Chitragupta
Sunil Srivastava, state president of the All India Kayastha Mahasabha, said that lakhs of Kayasthas live in the state. In Bhopal alone, the population of the Kayastha community is about two and a half lakh. Not only the Kayastha community but the entire Hindu community considers Lord Chitragupta adorable. Before any major puja we must take Lord Chitragupta’s name. Filming indecent scenes with him under such circumstances is unfair and against public sentiments.
Biswas Sarang wrote a letter to Anurag Tagore
Medical Education Minister Biswas Sarang has written a letter to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur in this incident. In the letter, Sarang wrote, the trailer of the film shows Lord Chitragupta, the adorable deity of the Kayastha society, with a half-naked woman. The Kayastha community was outraged over this and Hindutva organizations approached them to ban the film. A meeting held in Bhopal with members of the Kayastha Mahasabha unanimously decided that the film should be banned before October 25. That is why it is requested to ban the film, so as to protect the sentiments of the people of Kayastha society.
Controversial themes are kept to make the film a hit
At the same time, in a conversation with TV 9 India, Vishwa Sarang said that this indicates a conspiracy. Another thing to note is that people keep a theme for the film to be a hit, which is controversial. But the producers and directors of Bollywood should understand that playing with the emotions of the majority is not a good thing.
Congress has also supported
In this regard, the Congress also supported the demand of the Kayastha community. Congress media cell in-charge KK Mishra said care should be taken not to hurt the sentiments of any filmmaker. So they also support the demand to ban the film.
Recently, many such pictures have come to the fore, the content of which has raised the demand for ban. OTT platforms are full of such content. Recently there was talk of banning all films including Lal Singh Chadha, Brahmastra, after which the controversy escalated. Another film has been added to this list Thank God, but is the demand to ban the film enough or is there a need for stricter laws?
