Christians Irked By Film

NEW DELHI: A B-grade horror film 'Kaun Hai Waha?' has raised the hackles of the Christian community for its anti-Catholic symbols, with members demanding that the adult certificate given to the film be revoked. The film has been in trouble earlier over its graphic posters that displayed Jesus Christ being stabbed and another that had a cross shown upside down.

According to Christian organization Catholic Secular Forum (CSF), which had protested against the anti-Catholic symbols in blockbuster films like Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, the film is misrepresenting the Catholic faith. "We will approach the I&B ministry for a revocation of the certificate. They should not be allowed to screen this film," Joseph Dias, secretary general of CSF, said, adding that this was a marketing gimmick for the moviemakers but had played havoc on the sentiments of the community.


Kaun Hai Waha – This is the first time I am hearing about this film. Mr. Joseph Dias states that this is a marketing gimmick for the moviemakers – probably.

I wonder if Mr. Joseph realises that his idiotic protest is proving to be much more effective (than the posters) in marketing the film.

I am picturing Mr. Dias watching The Exorcist or The Omen. If a poster depicting an inverted cross has outraged him so much – it’s not so hard to imagine his head blowing off when he watches any of those 1970’s films. Hmm, I really think somebody should screen those films for him. Can’t wait to read the next day’s headlines.

If it’s hurting your religious sentiments – don’t watch the film. How hard is that? Furthermore, if a film poster hurts your religious sentiments, probably it’s time to take a closer look at your belief structure. Clearly there is something lacking over there.

Man! This is so bloody moronic!

Why do people think that they have a right not to be offended?!?

Also isn't "Catholic Secular Forum" an oxymoron?
