In their statement to the commissioner of police on Monday, the group alleged that the song Iraniyan Nadagam, about the disparaged conversation between Prahalad and Hiranyakashipu, will hurt the sentiments of Hindus.
"The lyrics of the song will upset followers of Lord Vishnu. It belittles the conversation between Prahalad and Hiranyakashipu. Hence, we demand a ban on the film," K.L Sathiyamoorthy, member of VHP, told IANS.
I have no idea what this film is about. I haven't heard the song and I doubt I would understand the meaning of the lyrics. BUT I do know that bans and demand for such bans is (and will always remain) idiotic. Not to mention - COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE.
I do not expect the
duffers blind followers of political ideologies dumb-fucks fanatics to possess the ability to comprehend this logic, but what has happened this time around has surpassed even their idiotic logic.
Earlier, something like this would raise demands for an edit of the lyrics or deletion of the song (coupled with a demand for an apology from the film-makers). But this time, the VHP has demanded a ban on the film because they find the song to be offensive!
