MUMBAI: The Hindu Janjagruti Samiti (HJS) wants Indo-Canadian adult star-turned-Bollywood actress Sunny Leone deported from India and her latest film Ragini MMS 2 banned.
In a memorandum to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), the Samiti says the film Ragini MMS 2 is an “an assault on Bharatiya culture, dignity and Hindu deities.’’
Since the film begins with the chanting of `Shree Hanuman Chalisa,’’ the Samiti says, “By making use of Shri Hanuman, a deity known to have control over his organs and whose character was ideal, religious sentiments of Hindus have been hurt to a great extent.
“Therefore, HJS has demanded that the movie should be immediately banned and porn star Sunny Leone, who is leading the young generation of Bharat to carnal desires, should be deported from Bharat.’’
The self-proclaimed guardian of Indian culture says, “Presently, morality in (Indian) society has reached its nadir. Offences such as rapes, atrocities on women and molestation of women are on the increase every day. In such a situation, it is unfortunate to observe that films being produced (are) leading society towards lecherousness and immorality…’’
The memorandum goes on to say, “”Notorious pornstar Sunny Leone plays a lead role in the film…all roles played by Sunny Leone in films so far have crossed the limits of dignity and grace of Bharatiya culture. Hindu society is enraged due to regular incidents of granting permission for exhibition of films, which hurt religious sentiments of Hindus and promote obscenity in society.’’
The Samiti warns that if the screening of the film is not banned, it will protest at movie halls screen it. The Samiti, whose aim is the `establishment of the Hindu Nation,’ is considered an offshoot of the RSS.
