ASIA/INDIA – Bollywood Movie: blasphemous scenes towards Christians have been cut out

Mumbai (Agenzia Fides) – The scenes considered “blasphemous” concerning people and symbols of the Christian faith in the Bollywood film “Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal” (see Fides 27/09/2012), will be eliminated before the release in cinemas: this was assured by the “Censor Board”. As reported by the Catholic sources of Fides Agency, the film’s producers have accepted the admonition received and, in an act of self-discipline, decided to eliminate offending scenes from the movie, before its release.
In a statement sent to Fides, Catholic groups such as “Catholic Secular Forum” (CSF), “Association of Concerned Catholics” (AOCC), “Maharashtra Christian Youth Forum” (MCYF), ” Catholic Residents Organization for Social Services” (CROSS), “Catholics for Preservation of Faith” (CPF), which two days ago had staged a peaceful protest in Bombay, have welcomed the outcome of the case and suspended all forms of demonstrations, as well as its intention to denounce the producers for “blasphemy.” The Indian Bishops had also raised their voices, expressing to Fides their “strong disappointment” and calling on the authorities intervention for the protection of religious symbols.
