Hindu Made An Object Of Hatred In Films, Ads, Comedy

For decades, films, series and ads have portrayed Hindus, especially the holy men, in poor light; stand-up comics have now aggravated it


Has anyone ever wondered what could be the most peaceful way to destroy the world’s oldest civilisation? A civilisation that has been hit by foreign invaders for centuries – be it Islamic invaders from East Asia and the Middle East or European colonists! Each of them has tried to impose their own culture on the people of India by attacking the ancient traditions and culture of India. But they have repeatedly had to concede defeat to the strong fears and sweetness of India’s traditional culture After all, of all the ancient civilisations, India is the only one that still exists today in its original and unadulterated form.

The key to India’s prosperity and progress lies in its ancient heritage In our Vedas, Puranas and our epics – Ramayana and Mahabharata we see an unprecedented collection of crafts, architecture and weapons and defence equipment. This proves how advanced the Indian civilisation was The excellence of science and technology, medicine, architecture, art is reflected in every work done in the past of India. The discoverer of zero, Aryabhata, the great mathematician Brahmihir, the father of surgery Sushruta, the father of Ayurveda Charak, the author of economics was born in this country. Universities like Nalanda and Takshyashila are created in this country, the value of which is not higher than any other eminent university of today but it is equivalent. So India does not need to look to any foreign country or learn from it to get the highest number of seats in the World Assembly. Hidden in every page of India’s ancient history is the key to India’s progress, which enables India to reach the pinnacle of development without relying on any Western country.

India is a Golden Swan to the West | This country of 130 crores is nothing but a huge market book of all the products made in their country The country did not deviate from its roots when India became independent after 200 years of British rule, apart from the invasion of the French and Olondaz. So, before leaving the country, the British ruling class tactfully handed over the governance of the country to a group of people who, despite being independent in name, tried their best to make India self-reliant instead of leading it towards self-reliance. At the same time, a group formed within India who, under the guise of higher education and progressivism, will do their best to distract Indians from their roots, will create disgust towards traditional culture and Hinduism in their minds. What better way to eradicate Hinduism without bloodshed!

The most effective way to influence a person’s mind is through entertainment – movies, plays, dances, songs, etc. People enjoy these fluently and happily, so the message that is conveyed through them affects people a lot. For this reason, a group of left-leaning artisans has been selected who, through their films, serials, advertisements, etc., will go against Hinduism so that the Hindu masses, especially the Hindu youth, will turn away from Hinduism.

Today, for several years now, shadow films, serials and advertisements have been used to portray Hindus, especially the Hindu sadhu or priest community, as pranks. Some of the films that stand out in this context are:

Gupi Bagha Returns – Directed by Sandeep Roy, released in 1992, this is the third edition of Gupi Bagha’s story collection, written by Satyajit Ray. In this image, we see a false royal priest named Brahmananda Acharya who, in order to get immortality and become very rich, orders Gupi and Bagha to steal two precious gems. Since the prophecy was that a 12-year-old boy named Vikram would be the cause of his death, he kidnapped all the 12-year-old boys in his kingdom and kept them as his servants. Veteran actor Ajit Bandopadhyay’s fluent acting made the character come alive, which is why it is natural to feel fear and hatred towards the Hindu monks and priest community.

Gotra is a production of currently the most successful director of Bengali films, directed by Nandita Roy and Shivprasad Mukherjee. As shown, preparing priests as comedians is a very common thing in Indian cinema and this has created a deceptive and humorous image in the minds of the masses about the priesthood community, which is causing the youth to turn away from worshipping Hindu rituals. In this film, on the other hand, a young man from a Muslim community is portrayed as a kind, good man and with him, love jihad is promoted.

, released in 2014, directed by Rajkumar Hirani and featuring Aamir Khan, must be taken seriously because it is a commercial blockbuster. The film exaggerated the contempt for Hindu monks, Hindu people and Hindu goddesses, prompting a campaign to boycott the film on social media. The film also features a fake Hindu saint, a character called Tapasvi Maharaj (Sourav Shukla) who engages in the business of deceiving people by promising to alleviate human misery by communicating with God through remote control.

The film also stars a Pakistani character named Sarfaraz as the main character who is an honest and devoted and loyal lover, played by the late Sushant Singh Rajput.

Chhappaak, released in January 2020, directed by Meghna Gulzar and featuring Deepika Padukone, is based on the life and struggle of Lakshmi Agarwal, the victim of an acid attack. Lakshmi (15) is attacked with acid by her neighbour Naeem Khan’s brother Kamran because Lakshmi rejects Naeem.

But the name of the acid attacker in the film became Babu by ‘magic’. People protested against this on social media, as a result of which the name of Babu was changed to Basir. The film, however, was not a commercial success

In Sherni, released on Amazon Prime in June this year, featuring Vidya Balan, is based on the 2016 killing of a tiger named Avni. Avni’s killers were Nawab Safat Ali Khan and his son, Asghar Ali Khan.

But in Sherni, the killer of that tiger was shown as a Hindu with a band of hangers-on. It is better to change the name of the character in a film based on true events, but it is natural to think that there is a nefarious motive behind his change of religion.

Sadak 2, directed by Mahesh Bhatt and released on Disney Hotstar in 2020, sets a precedent as the most disliked film on YouTube. Although the main reason for this was the news about the role of the Bhatt family in the film about the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, there was also its Hinduphobic content.

GHARE BAIRE AAJ, directed by Aparna Sen, released in 2019, depicts Hindutva leaders and celebrities as crew, hypocrites and killers. Everyone is aware of Aparna Sen’s extreme leftist thinking.

The film is based on Rabindranath Tagore’s novel, Ghare Baire, and is dedicated to Gauri Lankesh, who was shot dead in 2016.

Although it was revealed that Gauri Lankesh’s killer was unaffiliated — he had received an anonymous call that gave him the target whom he did not even know — Aparna Sen tried to subtly blame the Hindu organisation for Gauri Lankesh’s murder through this film.

Arundhati, based on the 2009 Telugu film of the same name, featuring Koel Mallick, has a Hindu as the villain (Indranil Sengupta) who kills people with the help of Tantra and black magic and can overcome his evil.

The only Muslim Pir (prominent playwright, Dev Shankar Haldar) This is a strange attempt to portray Hinduism as poisonous and other religions as symbols of good energy.

Many more such films, including OMG, released in 2012, and Sangharsh, released in 1998, have been made in different languages ​​over several decades, with the main aim of creating a hostile attitude towards Hinduism. But without prolonging this writing, I have prepared the names and subject matter of these pictures as examples. A Twitter handle called Gems of Bollywood has been relentlessly sharing footage from such anti-Hindu films for several months to sensitise the people of the evil that is the Indian film industry.

Sangharsh, featuring Akshay Kumar, Preity Zinta and Ashutosh Rana, which lifts its story from Silence of the Lambs, twists the original story to show tantra as a predatory practice.

Web series Leila featuring Huma Qureshi and Arif Zakaria showed a community fictitiously named Aryavart, but it was a clear reference to Hindus. The series infuriated Hindus as it showed the community kidnapping Hindu women who had fallen prey to love jihadis to ‘purify’ them. In reality, no such Hindu organisation exists while the efforts of both Muslims and Christians to change the demography of India enjoys institutional support, both domestic and foreign.

Serials have a special role to play in creating animosity towards Hindus and Hindu saints.

Ashram, released in 2020, the series is directed by Prakash Jha. It airs on MX Player. The theme of this series is to expose the hypocrisy of a Hindu saint and his female addiction Bobby Deol is playing the role of a saint in this series.

The public outrage over the series is so great that when the producers, actors and artisans arrived in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, recently to shoot the series, they had to face a mass whitewash. Somehow, with the help of the police, they escaped.

Sacred Games, based on Vikram Chandra’s novel first released in 2016, directed by far-left directors Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, is India’s first series to air on Netflix. The series, written by a hateful anti-Hindu writer and director from the beginning to the end, has been prepared as a very perverted and bisexual Hindu saint.

In addition, an ashram has been shown to be the centre of anti-India activities.

Godman, the Tamil series, was scheduled to air on Zee5 in June 2020, but due to public outrage, the channel stopped airing the series. The cause of public outrage is the plot where a Hindu saint is shown as a nymphomaniac. A line can be heard in one of the promotional videos of the series – “Where is it written that only Brahmins will read the Vedas?”

Fans expressed their displeasure on social media. A lawsuit was filed at a police station against the producers of the series. Zee5 was forced to stop broadcasting the series.

The stories of the two Netflix series Ghoul and Leila, aired in 2016 and 2019 respectively, move in the same direction. The backdrop of these two series took a shape a few years before their release when some artistes and intellectuals returned the prizes they had received, blaming the government for ‘intolerance’.

They show society moving in the direction of a supposed theocratic Hindu state that goes about arresting people who have a problem with the transformation.

Betal, produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and aired on Netflix in 2020, features Hindus as superstitious and devil worshipers.

Asura, the series that aired on Voot in 2020, portrays a devout Hindu, who reads the Vedas and Puranas, as a professional murderer.

Surprisingly, state broadcaster Doordarshan is seen spreading Hindu hatred too. A cartoon aimed at children shows a Muslim child beating up a Hindu yoga guru for physical exercises and making fun of him. This will create a negative attitude in the mind of the child towards Hindu sadhus and yogic exercises, which is not desirable at all, especially when there is a special need for yoga to keep the body and mind healthy.

In southern India, a number of communist propaganda are being made, depending on the caste system. Such as – Joy Bhim, Asura etc. In these movies, the communists are giving their message by making the upper caste a villain. Naxalism is subtly raising its head in that strange propaganda. With this, of course, there is huge missionary funding. Those who gradually work on turning India from a Hindu to an alien culture-following society.

As the films are released on various apps, evil thoughts penetrate more and more minds. Where is the effort of our rightists? There are many problems in running a state, but by capitalising on those who want to bridge the gap between the country and society to fulfil their own interests, what exactly should be done? Marathi carry almost the same message as Tumbbad.


Anti-Hindu campaigns in advertisements

The world of advertising is not far behind in spreading Hindu hatred.

In 2020, Tanishq, a renowned jewellery maker of the Tata group, faced the wrath of the Hindu community for advertising their Ekatvam brand before Durga Pujo. At a time when several Hindu girls in the country have been brutally killed by love jihad — someone’s body was found in a suitcase lying on the side of the road, while someone’s burnt body was discovered several days after his death. But Tanishq’s advertisement shows a Hindu woman living happily in the house of her Muslim father-in-law, and despite their lack of religious observance, the Hindu woman was made to eat Baby shower food by her Muslim mother-in-law. Tanishq is promoting love jihad by showing a picture that is completely opposite to reality, this is what most people think. Eventually, Tanishq was forced to withdraw the advertisement due to public outrage.

Then, this year and just before Durga Puja, a well-known local apparel seller, Manyavar, in an advertisement of their ‘Mohe’ brand, questioned kanyadan in a Hindu wedding. When equivalent conventions are prevalent in all traditions, why target Hinduism alone? What could be the reason for insulting the nation while laughing one’s way to the bank?

Another renowned garment maker, Fab India, named their Diwali special clothing collection Jashnn-e-Riwaz this year. The term translates to a song of another religion. Or they tried to create an impression that Diwali had no religious roots but was just a custom, with riwaj misspelt with a ‘z’.

PNG Jewellers and PC Chandra involve similar tactics of condescension in their advertising campaigns. Bengalis must remember that several years ago, the advertisement of Jamini Saree – “Small Bindi, Light Lipstick and Jamini Saree”. In today’s advertisement, the women’s faces are pale and they don’t sport the bindi, the quintessential Hindu identity marker of women. A ‘dotless’ forehead of a Hindu denotes mourning if not always widowhood. Did the fashion designers miss that?

Consumers panned this secularisation of our religious conglomerate. A #NoBindiNoBusiness campaign was launched on social media, calling for the boycott of products of the companies named above. Scared of losing business, Tanishq came back with happy, smiling woman models, wearing the ‘dot’.

In 2019, an advertisement for Hindustan Unilever’s Brooke Bond tea showed a boy leaving his elderly father at the Kumbh Mela and fleeing. Hindustan Unilever mentions in their tweet that according to them, a lot of old people are found at the Kumbh Mela, abandoned by their family members who just deserted them and fled. The corporation faced protests on social media. Many prominent people including Baba Ramdev protested, saying that abandoning elders of the family was anti-Hindu, not just at the Kumbh Mela. They alleged that through this advertisement, the multinational organisation, Hindustan Unilever, wanted to project Hindus as economically and ideologically poor. Hindustan Unilever was forced to withdraw the advertisement in the face of protests.

In 2019, an advertisement for a swing festival at Surf Excel, a detergent maker for Hindustan Unilever, showed a baby girl carrying a Muslim baby boy on her bicycle to pray and ‘protecting’ him from colours on Holi. The ad projects the festival of Holi as an insensitive practice. Social media users had called for a boycott of Surf Excel at that point.

An ad by Ceat tyres this year during the Diwali season sends a message that the road should be used for vehicular traffic, not for gambling. Many, including MP Ananta Kumar Hegde, expressed outrage over the advertisement that featured actor Aamir Khan. While is a fringe practice among some Hindus, Diwali gambling happens inside houses and not on thoroughfares. Further, people questioned why the tyre maker could not muster enough courage to make an ad that showed namaz on roads, which would not be a contrived plot, as that is witnessed across the world.

Before Durga Puja in 2019, the Anandabazar group’s English daily, The Telegraph, launched a surprise campaign to change the word “putram dehi” (O Goddess, give us a child) in Durga mantra to ‘santanam dehi’, hardly realising that the term “putra” in Sanskrit may be used in a gender-neutral manner. When both son and daughter are desirable to the parents, the ad-makers tried to create an impression that Hindus hated the girl child. A number of artistes including Abir Chakraborty, Rituparna Sengupta, Swastika Mukherjee took part in the campaign.

Another point the ad-makers missed is the fact that the mantra is a prayer to attain a child who would go on to perform the last rites of the parents, which Hindu texts say both a son and a daughter are capable of.

Their objective was to project Hinduism as an anti-woman religion. However, the results were somewhat reversed for them as the campaign did not last long. It did not leave much of an impact on the public mind. In addition, many people became aware of the real meaning and significance of the mantra.

In August, an advertisement for the Niaz Hotel, a hotel in Belagabi, Karnataka, showed a Hindu monk eating biryani at the hotel, his mouth full of praise, and his mouth sounding “Ahom Brahmasmi “!

If Hindu hatred is a product, then its biggest spokespersons are some comedians in this country, for whom the only subject of humour is to ridicule Hinduism, Hindu gods and goddesses and Hindu customs. The most unfortunate thing about this is that there is no shortage of listeners for these anti-Hindu stand-up performers, who are embarrassed and angry when the comic artistes mock Hinduism. This kind of behaviour is common among other religious communities and perhaps this is why all these so-called progressive anti-Hindu artistes have so easily made Hinduism the subject of their own jokes.

The first person whose name comes to mind among these anti-Hindu comedians is Munnawar Farooqi. Hindu hatred is evident from every sentence he utters He was spreading Hindu hatred in his own way at a function in Indore, Madhya Pradesh on January 1 this year. After that, a young man named Eklabya ​​Rana, who was present among them, lodged a complaint in the police station in his name for hurting religious sentiments. Farooqi was arrested and remanded in custody for one month Recently, he has again expressed interest in performing in different cities, but no one is willing to watch his show

Another woman artiste’s name comes to mind – Surlin Kaur In 2019, he made an ugly remark about Iskcon in a television program As a result, he faced the wrath of the Hindu community and Iskcon sent him a legal notice His name was not heard after the incident

Not only comedians but also many politicians and Hindus have taken the opportunity of indifference towards Hinduism to pay homage to Hinduism and Hindu gods and goddesses. A vivid example of this is the ruling party in West Bengal, Trinamool Congress MP Kalyan Bandopadhyay, who during his campaign in the last Assembly elections remarked that today’s Ram would have preferred to be with Mata Ravana when he saw ‘fans’. Kunal Ghosh, a spokesman for the same party, made a scathing remark about Rama at a meeting in Tripura a few days ago, blaming him for abandoning Sita and calling Rama and all his devotees misogynists. Needless to say, the purpose of both comments is to appease a particular community In a similar vein, our country’s former cabinet minister, Salman Khurshid, in his recently released book, ‘Sunrise over Ayodhya’, can be compared to Hindutva, the country’s most brutal, horrific terrorist organisation, Isis and Boko Haram. Reasons – One: Hindus are very tolerant and two: The rest of us in our democratic country take advantage of the thing called freedom. The anti-Hindu groups in this country.

The media of our country is not far behind due to Hindu hatred So when Junaid or Akhlaq or Tabrez is killed, their names and the names of their killers are swollen and printed in big and bold letters to prepare the minority community as victims of torture at the hands of the majority and increase their newspaper sales. On the other hand, when a girl from a foreign religion brutally kills Sharma, who is pictured in the crime of love, the family members of that girl, then the names of both the murderer and the murderer remain implicit on the pages of the newspaper because not revealing their names will increase newspaper sales or their foreigners. Helpers will be happy For the same reason, the headline of the Veda Pathshala is associated with the madrasa associated with child trafficking, but the name of the Veda Pathshala is not mentioned in the original news because there is no evidence that the Pathshala is involved in this work. Another example of the duplicity of the media: a fake saint named Ashraf Ali was arrested by the police for sexually abusing a number of youths – then his name was implied and he was only identified as a saint because the word ‘saint’ first reminds him of Hindu saints.

The most worrying and sad thing is that some educational institutions have started playing a leading role in spreading poison against Hindus. Recently, a drama about Ramlila was presented at a school called St. Mary’s in Gurugram, Haryana, where Sri Ram, Mata and other characters from Ramayana were mocked. Faced with the anger of the Hindu community living in the town, the school authorities were forced to apologise.

Last May, Una Academy, an online training center for competitive exams, sparked controversy by asking a hateful question on an exam question paper from their organisation. Their question was, “If the Muslim community takes their religious procession through a Hindu neighborhood on the day of Eid and the Hindus throw stones at them, will it be okay?” This makes the Hindu community very angry – needless to say that Hindus are naturally tolerant, they never have a negative attitude towards other communities and do not attack anyone without persuasion.

From the various pujas of the Hindus to the ceremonies like marriage, feasting and entering the house and the shraddha peace is not accomplished without this Brahmin or priestly community. Therefore, if this Brahmin or priest succeeds in creating a negative attitude towards the community, then the Hindu society will be disgusted with all these Hindu customs, principles and practices, which will make it very easy to eradicate Hinduism from the minds of Hindus. It is for this purpose that the combined efforts of this Hindu saint or priest or anti-Brahmin in the medium of entertainment have been going on for the last few centuries. This is followed by the social media movement of progressive, feminists called ‘Smash Brahminical Patriarchy’. Some Hindu nationalists are of the opinion that the brutal massacre of Hindu saints in Palghar, Maharashtra last year, and the killing of Hindu saints and priests in several other parts of the country, though minor, may provoke a hostile attitude towards them through this entertainment. However, due to the recent rise of Hindu nationalist forces, their anti-Hindu campaign is being defeated in many cases.

On closer inspection, it is clear that the main culprits behind the spread of Hindu hatred are all tied to a thread controlled by some wealthy businessmen abroad, to whom India, a country of 130 crores, is a huge commodity market. If their glorious history can be erased from the minds of Indians, if they can be uprooted, it will no longer be possible for them to become self-reliant by drawing inspiration from their past and their traditional culture. So in order to maintain economic control over our country, these various organisations of our country have been using this ecosystem of foreign wealth tycoons since independence. The nationalist government that has ruled India for the past seven years and its commitment to self-reliance, along with the special efforts of the country’s nationalists, have been very successful in countering this ecosystem. There are two ways to overcome the ecosystem – one is to get rid of anti-Hindu films, serials, products, etc. – if they have difficulty in earning money, they will refrain from such activities. Two: Promoting all films, serials and arts that promote nationalist ideology and which are against the creation of anti-national, anti-Hindu art. The film, literature and art of any country create a positive image of that country and if that country is involved in any negative act then it is also justified by the film, literature and art of that country. But in our country, inspired by the leftist ideology and the influence of the above ecosystem, the exact opposite is seen. It is urgent for the nationalists to unite in order to stand up against this Only then will we be able to stop this kind of cultural genocide.

But social media users mislead Hindus too

Paatal Lok, produced by actress Anushka Sharma and aired on Amazon Prime in 2020, was picked as an anti-Hindu too while that can be disputed. People objected to assigning the surname Tyagi (a Brahmin title) to the psychotic killer in the story. However, Tyagi was avenging his sister’s rape and death, even as his method of going about it, bludgeoning the heads of the rapists with a hammer, came across as downright barbaric.

A section of the audience objected also to the notion that Paatal Lok depicted terrorists as Hindus although the plot was of serial crimes and not terrorism.

Some critics said that the series projected the current government and premier investigating agency CBI as killers of the journalists and VIPs. But both institutions blamed neighbouring Pakistan and their intelligence agency, the ISI, which, according to the makers of the series, are innocent!

Where the critics go wrong are in the claim that the villains were all Brahmins. They were not. An entire gang was of Gurjars. Also, it was a bit of a stretch to claim that a place considered holy by Hindus could not have any nefarious element lurking in the shadows. Too much was made of the fact that the plot had Chitrakoot as a backdrop of some antisocial activities.

Article 15 and Padmaavat were other victims of fake news, but it is entirely possible that Sanjay Leela Bhansali hatched the misleading propaganda to shore up audience curiosity about the film. Sirf News had received an article slamming Padmaavat when Bhansali had merely announced his new project’s name without detailing what the film would contain.

Social media campaigners had claimed Article 15 was anti-Brahmin. It was not. The perpetrator in the film belonged to an OBC caste whereas the most virtuous character in the film, its protagonist played by Ayushmann Khurrana, is a Brahmin. Perhaps the only critique of Brahminism that the film shows is the section where a group of Brahmins speak on the hierarchy of castes within the Brahmin fold.
