Panjim: The Hindu Janjagran Samiti(HJS) on Saturday sought a ban on screening of the Hindi movie “Laxmmi Bomb”, to be released on November 9 protesting against what it called ‘denigrating of the name of Shree Lakshmi Devi’, the deity of millions of Hindus and for purposely encouraging ‘Love Jihad’ by displaying the relationship between Muslim youth and a Hindu girl.
Ramesh Shinde, national spokesperson of HJS said in a statement on Saturday that the body objects to the name of the film starring Akshay Kumar, which denigrates Lakshi Devi’s name.
‘On the one hand, we have been enlightening people for the last several years to stop bursting ‘Lakshmi Firecrackers’ which insults the Hindu Deity, and the name of this film will only encourage them to burst the firecrackers again’, he claimed.
Similarly, he claimed the film encouraged ‘Love Jihad’ by showing the actor ‘Asif’, Muslim youth, and actress Priya Yadav being in a relationship in the film. Therefore, the film should be banned.
”Mohammad: The Messenger of God’s, which hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims was banned by the state government and therefore we demand that the government ban the screening of this film on those lines,’ demanded Shinde.
He further claimed that as the film was made by Muslims like producer Shabina Khan and the writer Farhad Samaji, it was clear that they were deliberately spreading anti-Hindu Dharma propaganda.
