SUMMARY

A minister of state has called on the government to ban the upcoming Thank God movie, starring Ajay Devgn and Sidharth Malhotra. In a letter sent to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur, Madhya Pradesh Education Minister Vishvas Sarang claimed that the comedy film featured an inappropriate depiction of Hindu deities. Netizens have also called for a boycott of the film because it hurts religious feelings in the name of comedy. “It is evident from the trailer itself that #ThankGod is once again a mockery of #HinduDharm. This time #Bollywood has chosen Chitragupta. According to Hindu scriptures, he is the Lord of Karma who holds a record of a man’s good and bad deeds,” one twitter user wrote. Here’s a look at some recent movies that have sparked religious controversy.
