Nevada (US), April 02: Hindus have urged Leela Samson, the newly appointed chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) of India, to halt the unnecessary violence and vulgarity of Indian films.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement today, said that seeing the continuous increase in the vulgarity and violence in Indian films, it appeared that the Board of the largest filmmaking country had lost the sense of India’s cultural milieu and was ignoring the directions given in the Cinematograph Act.

Zed, who is the president of Universal Society of Hinduism, said that they were fully supportive of the artistic freedom and expression and did not want any unnecessary censorship, but were highly concerned about the increasing presence of the immodest, explicit and risqué scenes in the movies which were there simply for “mercantile greed” having nothing to do with cinematic elements.

Rajan Zed appealed to Samson to view the films as a regular Indian mother who was struggling to raise her children to become moral and successful citizens of India of tomorrow and not as the mother whose children attended night-clubs and late-night parties and knew no moral boundaries.

Zed pointed out that CBFC certification team needed to be retrained in “what India stood for” and what were our moral perimeters.

Rajan Zed stresses that the country’s Cinematograph Act lays down that a film has to be certified keeping “morality” in mind, besides other things. CBFC objectives of film certification reportedly include… “the medium of film remains responsible and sensitive to the values and standards of society”, “the medium of film provides clean and healthy entertainment”…What happened to the CBFC “guidelines for certification” like “human sensibilities are not offended by vulgarity, obscenity or depravity”, Zed asked.

Zed argued that cinema was a highly powerful medium and had the potential of impacting the audience and altering the psyche, especially the impressionable minds of younger generation.

CBFC (popularly known as Censor Board), whose vision is “to ensure the good and healthy entertainment”, is a statutory body under India’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting regulating the public exhibition of films.

Headquartered in Mumbai, it presently has 25 members. It has nine regional offices at Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Thiruvananthapuram, Hyderabad, New Delhi, Cuttack and Guwahati and certifies films in four categories of U, UA, A, and S. Pankaja Thakur is the Chief Executive Officer.ndia has reportedly about 13,000 cinema halls and according to an estimate, every three months an audience as large as India’s entire population (about 1.17 billion) flock to the cinema halls.

Padmashri awardee Leela Samson, 59, is a well-known dancer-choreographer-writer and chairperson of Sangeet Natak Akademi. Previous chairpersons included Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Shakti Samanta, Asha Parekh, Vijay Anand, Anupam Kher, Sharmila Tagore, etc.

    Hi everyone… plz save the grace of greatest and purest religion Islam and it’s heritage.

    Well, this is concerning one very important and insulting issue. Which I want to bring into your kind consideration and I also request everybody to circulate this content to as many people
    You know. By doing so one can really help to upbring the moral and ethics of one wide, vast, cultural, dignified, sophisticated and most royal civilization of all time. And that is Islam…

    You know ,I cannot say whether this is intentional or without any motive but this is happening constantly and continuously over and over again in Media, Movies and T.V.

    Dear Friends, I have always noticed that in our bollywood movies and T.V , some people are trying to impose their personal dirty thinking by using beautiful, sacred and pious words with provocative gyrations and double meaning way. Majority of them are so heinous, vulgar, obscene and object able that it’s shameful for me to post here. But as this is the matter of passing derogatory remarks at one specific Muslim community without any censor cut and objection. Si I find this my moral duty to have everyone aware of sarcastic taste.

    I am damn sure that many of us have seen some movies and teleserials, songs, adds, and many other things, where such prejudices and preoccupations are being shown.

    For example—-

    (1)- In many movies actors say that let me enjoy And see your “ Jannat” (basically they request to women before making love……….everybody knows ..what does that mean for?)

    Why we condemn this—– because they do this purposely. Jannat cannot be associated with the pleasure one get through such dirty act. We Muslims say that there is Jannat (Heaven) underneath mother’s feet. When it comes to use Arabic/Urdu/Farsi and spiritual words they always use for dirty things. But when they talk about their Mothere’s feet..they say that there is a Swarg underneath our mother’s feet. Why don’t they use the same “ Swarga word” while begging their lady love to show their that desired object? Think and reply.

    (2)- Recently I have seen dialog among actors in a new going to be release movie.

    Actor says whenever I see this girl………..(then he deliberately looks down to his bloody dirty dick and completes the dialog)……….. mera saala Eimaan dol jata hai (my bloody using and many other then why don’t they use this way………….. jab faith/religion goes strayed/ vanished).
    . This ——– ““Eiemaan”” word is the basic character of Muslim community Hi everyone
    is religion/ faith/ extract of life and death. This is also believe in Allah SWT. So, when these people are bhi iss Why condemn this——– H

    larhki ko dekhta hoon……saalaa mera Dhram sankat me parh jata hai…………….or………. any oher sacred word as per their beliefs?

    While they are using their branded new iconic terminology worldwide like …GURU, GYAAN, YOGA, Bhaashan…… etc. very proudly……. Instead of Ustaad, Shagird, Ilm/Taaleem, Taqreer and Kasrat.

    (3)—- In movie Kachche Dhage one bastard says to Ajay Devgan (who is playing the role of a Muslim guy)…….that you get off most unfaithful citizen. Saalaa….no matter how much we do for you people….in the end you show your Zaat/ Auqaat. You bloody dirty blood of a dirty community.

    Why do we condemn—— This Ajay Devgan doesn’t defend or argue and keeps quite as if he was supporting these biased and heinous remarks. Otherwise we all know as to how much our dwarf actors make dhisoom-dhisooom without any reason…. Forget about him………I am shocked as to how our censor board doesn’t cut such insulting remarks?

    These are a few examples only…………most of the time this wooden actor Jimmy Shergil makes such horrible comments against God. In many of his movies while playing the character of a muslim guy.like in “ Allah Paak ki galti ki saza , apne apko kyon de rahi ho? Such idiots don’t know that ALLAH/GOD never commits errors.

    …I am sure you people also must have seen such things,,,,,like amitabh says in Khakhi movie to a Muslim Doctor that you people can even sale your mother in a brothel. How sick….!!!!
    friends……………….please highlight them here and help to safeguards our interest and rituals. I am really not aware of the email ID of the concerned censor board’s authorities …….so if anybody knows then plz let me know so that I can make an official complain against such film makers and agans censor board’s members too for being biased with us.

    Thanks for reading and thinking…….
