Hindu Organizations demands ban on 'Singham Returns'



Ahead of its release on Independence Day, Rohit Shetty's 'Singham Returns' has been hit by a controversy after a Hindu organisation has asked the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to ban the film.

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has written to the CBFC, stating that the film depicts Hindu saints in a bad light, hurting the religious sentiment of the believers of the faith.HJS National Secretary Ramesh Shinde told PTI that the trailer of the film, uploaded online, shows a Hindu saint as a 'villain'

"They have shown that actor Ajay Devgn, who plays the role of a police officer speaks of hitting the saint, while he is seen offering prayer at a mosque in uniform, and saluting a Muslim priest. This is going to create a wrong impression about the Hindu religion," he said.

Shinde said, "If the producer of the film goes ahead with the release without cutting the scenes (defaming a Hindu saint), we will hold demonstrations across the country." 'Singham Returns' has also been shot in Goa, besides Hyderabad and Mumbai.

Devout Hindus, join the ongoing nationwide protests against Anti-Hindu Singham Returns

  1. In this film, one hooligan is shown as 'Sadhu', a villain and hero of the film who is from police department, speaks to him in a very derogatory manner; he beats up that 'sadhus' devotees. Hero goes to mosque in his uniform and reads 'namaz' so also salutes mosque.
  2. Various pro-Hindu organizations have registered protest against all these things, all over the country.
  3. Hindu Seva Parishad (HSP), an organization from Jabalpur's 'Sanskardhani' area held a meeting and chalked out a plan on how to oppose this film. Shri. Atul Jaiswani, the President of HSP and other members including Shri. Saurabh Jain, Utkarsh Sawant, Jitendra Chimnani, Nikhil Kanojia etc. were present and other organizations are also extending support to them. (Congratulations to HSP for opposing anti-Hindu film through Hindu unity as also to other organizations which are supporting HSP ! Such devout Hindus are needed everywhere ! – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat)
  4. Shri. Vatkar told Shri. Rakeshkumar that why only Hindu Saints are always insulted? Why Censor Board allows it to happen ? Why such films are not made on maulanas and missionaries ?
  5. Shri. Rakeshkumar said that he had received Shri. Vatkar's letter and would discuss the matter for watching the film again.
  6. Shri. Vatkar contacted Reliance Entertainment Company also which is the producer of this film. A person named Patil acknowledged having received Shri. Vatkar's letter and informed that it was sent to their legal department; reply would be sent about Hindus' objections.
  7. Many readers of 'Dainik Sanatan Prabhat' and devout Hindus are registering protest, in lawful manner, against this film through phone and fax on the following number and address(Please check the link at the start).

banning the film altogether is a lil too much.
Better just remove the scene of Police going to the Mosque getting in skull caps and then abusing the "Sadhu".

We all appreciated his Gangajal and the last thing Devgan need is this Muslim appeasement by insulting Hindus.

Seriously.....i am fed up with bollywood......Why have the hindus taken the theka of secularism?
Recently there is a KBC ad which also shows secular stupidity....

kisi cheez ko itna bhi naa dikhao logon ka uspe se bharosa uth jaaye..........don't show something so much that people get bored of it. I think one day people will realize that this secularism is bullshit.

If this insult to Hindus didn't stop it would lead to more and this is the reason there SHOULD be limit to tolerance.

Just imagine a Sadhu having a Trident killing a Evil Maulvi in a movie.Easy to imagine what would Muslims do.

In his own words money is what he wants and even if it comes from controversy or insulting Hindus.It's easy since Hindus would not really do something.If done with Muslims riots would be there.

There is no ban on 'Singham Returns', says director Rohit Shetty | Latest News & Updates at Daily News & Analysis

When you make a film, you want your money to be recovered. Unlike earlier times when a film doing well was not counted by how much it earned but on the basis of how many days it ran in theatres - whether a film was a silver jubilee, a golden jubilee or a 100-day running film - that was the main parameter for success. Now we say the film has earned Rs 100 crore or Rs 150 crore or Rs 200 crore. Business is definitely important because otherwise, you won't survive.

The Original Tamil Version (Singam 2) Does not have such scenes. In the Tamil Version, there are four antagonists are and of which three are Indians and One african. The three Indians are from the three major religions (One Hindu, One Muslim and One Christian). A muslim police officer w ho is also the close aide of the protagonist gets stabbed in his belly by the african while He resists a jail break attempt. But He gets well and joins the Hero for hunting down the criminals.

That said, the Hindi version makers seem have some motive in adding such scenes that are being objected by the Hindu organizations. These are cheap publicity stunts that should not be encouraged.

@Religious nutcases: If you think the movie offends your religious feelings, don't watch it. Simple. Who are you to force other people to stop watching the movie? Vote with your wallet, as civilized people do. Stop acting like animals and stop threatening to kill those who you disagree with, because such behaviour only causes other countries and people to look down upon your kind as barbarians.

Making a controversial movie is a fine way to gain cheap publicity, and thereby, decent profits.

It's like celebrity women who purposefully orchestrate nip-slips to gain cheap popularity.

Bollywood has always been very closely linked with the Wahabi lobby, Dawood Gang and all sorts of Miscreants. And if you see this, Its is not very surprising. Has anyone in the Mainstream Bollywood got guts to show a Terrorist Muslims, in a real light, and not by the Typical story of hardship drawing him to terrorism. Have they got guts to show a barking Mullah in front of Muslims? Have they got guts to show the plight of Kashmiri Pandits?

@Ideological nutcase: If you think the post is offending your feelings, refrain from commenting. :p

Forcing people not to watch the movie is when people goes around with danda to pull the shutters of movie theatres. It has not yet gone that way. Hence, your comment is inappropriate. Applying to Censor Board for further review and cutting scenes is totally legal.

BTW, do we care what those snooty countries think about us? It is the same idea by our political class that has brought the present dilemma today - over secularism like the other so called developed nations. They have been seeing us as barbarian since time immemorial, how else the pigshit movie like 'Slumdog Millionaire' could get an Oscar? I would rather we gradually get our economy up to their level when they keep thinking India as the place of Mysticism, Snake Charmers and roaming cows - just like China did.

Now, I personally believe there are multitude of fake Sadhus who are sources of a great deal of corrupt action. BUT - does it mean the other side is pure as snow? How many Maulavis as villain have been depicted in the movies in last 2 decades, even though there have been ample evidence of otherwise. Also, showing a bunch of uniformed police officers who have been depicted as non-Muslims, offering Namaaz can very well be offensive which implies superiority of a religion over others.

And, if you have the least little idea of marketing (I don't know whether you have being a hardcore communist, you probably work better with propaganda) you would know the little incident would simply rack up more revenue for the movie, not less. Curiosity is one of the addiction the marketing people target very well, and this little incident has geared up the curiosity level very high in populace. They would curse the movie may be, but after they come out of the theatre.

Had it been three years back, I would have been against this move by Hindu orgs as I was an idealist back then.

But being a realist now, Hindus cant be meted out this injustice and hence I fully support the move of the Hindu organisations. If the threat of violence can save Islam from being depicted for its actual self, then it means Hindus are not being violent enough when the same does not happen to Hinduism. Enough with the crap called secularism. If Bigotry is the only means of survival, then I say we should be proud bigots as survival trumps every other crap
