New Delhi: Bollywood movie ‘Pathan’ released recently. Shah Rukh Khan’s song scene with Deepika Padukone is controversial. The Hindu organizations raised the war flag demanding that the obscene dance scene with the khaki colored dress should be banned. Similarly, there are complaints from time to time that there are controversial scenes in films against Hinduism.
In this case, a dharma assembly was held on behalf of the monks of various monasteries in Prayagraj, UP. Regarding the decision taken in this, Shankaracharya Avimukteswaranand, the president of Jyotishwar Peedham, said yesterday:
We will not allow any language film, television and web serials that are against Hindu Sanatana Dharma and Hindu culture. Obscene scenes and scenes of violence against women are not acceptable. For this our dharmasabha convenes and issues some guidelines.
According to this, an audit committee of 9 members is constituted. After the panel has seen all the films and serials, they will be released for public viewing. The Committee will assist the Audit Committee of the Central Government. We are ready to go to court on this issue. Avimuktesh Varanand said this.
Shankarachari Yar Avimukteswaranand is the Patron of this Dharma Sabha Audit Committee. The committee headed by Suresh Manchanda included film actor Manish Pandey, Supreme Court advocate PN Mishra, Swami Chakrabani, U.P. Film Development Council Vice-Chairman Tarun Ratti, retired Army Captain Arvind Singh Bhatoria, Preeti Shukla, Dr. Gargi Pandit, former Director of Archaeological Survey of India Dharamvir among others.
Deepika Padukone’s ‘Padmaavat’ and Tamil director Leena Manimekalai’s documentary ‘Kali’ have also come under controversy. A committee set up by monks to re-censor such productions is also expected to stir controversy.
This is because it has been announced that the Central Government Film Censor Board will re-censor the approvals.
