‘The Love Guru’ Irks Hindus

Asian Week, Posted: Jun 08, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO -- Hindus want to undo the damage done by the new Hollywood movie “The Love Guru,” reports Asian Week. They have urged Viacom and its brand Paramount Pictures to post a study guide about Hinduism and the guru tradition on their websites and place it in movie theaters worldwide. Many Hindu leaders claim that the film lampoons their religion and frivolously throws around many Hindu terms. Bhavna Shinde of the Hindu organization Janjagruti Samiti and Sanatan Society for Scientific Spirituality, based in Mumbai, urged Viacom and Paramount to immediately issue a study guide on the religion. He asked that they post it on the official websites of Viacom and Paramount and make it available free of cost in printed form at the movie theaters worldwide. Some Hindu groups have requested that India’s Central Board of Film Certification and Ministry of Information ban screenings of the movie entirely since it's home to the majority of the world’s one billion Hindus.
